Growing up as a kid in the late 80’s and 90’s, you cannot deny the powerhouse that was Disney. Every new animated film that got released felt like an instant classic and added a nice entry to our oversized plastic case VHS collection. The Mermaid. The Beast. Prince Ali. And the King of the Jungle himself. What did all of these movies have in common -- besides their epic sing your lungs out soundtracks? Traditional 2D animation.
Forget the theme parks, merch sales, and soundtracks topping the charts. The world of Disney was literally built on 2D animations, starting with the classic Mickey Mouse shorts and transitioning to full-color feature-length films like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. And with each new Disney movie that followed Snow White, the stories and music were original -- but the essential art and design all felt like it came from the same family of animators.
Just check out any group shot of Disney Princesses -- they all have a similar style and vibe that feels so “Disney”, giving you a sense of nostalgia, comfort, and happiness which stems from the animations they originally came from. And now that’s all that remains -- the nostalgia. Why? Because Disney no longer produces 2D feature-length films. Instead, they are creating full CG movies like Moana, Frozen, and Wreck-It Ralph. Which are all great movies in their own right, but could have still existed among 2D releases as well.
It wasn’t just a style -- but an artform that has defined Disney for so many years. But the rise in technology and massive success over at Pixar led to the slow downfall of 2D movies -- eventually forcing Disney to shut down production on them all together. But what exactly happened? Learn why Disney stopped making 2D animated movies, the REAL reason for their downfall -- and how we can expect to see some type of revival in the future.
