There is no argument that Walt Disney invented the animated film. It wasn’t the first, but it certainly set the standard to which every other animated film aspired. The story is simple and the voice cast is insignificant, but the simplistic beauty of the film lies in its art. Before this film there were limits to films; there was only so much that could be done. But here Walt Disney envisioned a completely new concept that opened up new possibilities in cinema. This film allowed magic to appear on screen. It allowed everything to flow perfectly and every moment felt fluid and every effect felt natural. Animation offered a new opportunity and Walt Disney took it.
Slow and simple, but it took the world by storm and it deserves applause for that.
Outdated story, but the animation alone warants…
