Recently watching Kung-fu Panda got me thinking of animation movies. One of the greatest results of animation is the popularisation of the fairy-tale.
Its the 88th year anniversary this year of the Walt Disney Company that churns out animated movies, books, merchandise year after year. All the fairy-tales of the Disney company find their origin from folk-tales all around the world. Whether it’s Beauty and the Beast set in Paris or Arabian Nights set in the Middle East, some major countries in the world are covered till date. With increased technical skills and animation facilities the company is beginning to make movies with flawless rendering. Animation art has truly stepped up!
“If you can dream it, you can do it”, quoted Walt Disney. He dreamt and did as a living example. From a Mickey Mouse to the Epcot Centre, Disney sure has a way of getting into your living room.
As you grow older you may choose to love them or hate them, but there is no way you can ignore them!
Which one is your favorite fairy-tale?
