From Formspring: i miss the old days.you think disney will ever go back to hand-drawn animation?
If you’re talking about animation using ink and paint and shot on screen, never. Hand-drawn animation hasn’t been the industry standard in films in decades, and most of the shows and films using 2D animation use a computer program for the ink and paint work. Toon Boom Harmony and Adboe Flash have become industry standards at nearly all studios, even Disney (which used Harmony for The Princess and the Frog and a proprietary software called CAPS from The Rescuers Down Under to Home on the Range) .
If you’re talking about traditional two-dimensional animation, they might go back, but not any time soon. They did a few years ago with The Princess and the Frog. Pretty good movie. Unfortunately considering the fact that America is still ‘Merica, it didn’t do too well in theaters, and it kind of became a setback for the studio. A shame really, but you never know if they’ll come back to traditional animation.
