Today, my friends and I went to a special exhibit at the DDP (DongDaemun History and Cultural Park). You may remember from one of my last post, this one, that I mentioned that I was planning on coming to the Art of Disney.
Unlike Keith Haring, there was a long line I had to wait in to get my tickets. Then again, it was on a Sunday. Everyone know that Sunday is date/family day in Korea. It is like almost everyone literally goes out on Sundays.
Along the wall was a short time line of Disney. It showed its development, the shorts that aired before movies and films, plus the debut of the Mickey Mouse character.
After seeing Mickey and the other characters, such as Donald, we went further into time with the introduction of the Snow White movie. Everyone knows its one of Disney’s fully animated feather length film (at least at the time). It is also what started Disney as we know it today.
Fun fact, it turns out that the reason the prince in this movie (and Sleeping Beauty) rarely show up, is because he was too hard to animate. Additionally, he was too “flamboyant” and they couldn’t man him up.
Next, we take a trip to Alice in Wonder Land, Sleeping Beauty, and various films leading up to the 1960s. I didn’t take much pictures because, frankly, I don’t enjoy (or even like) most of the films from that era. Blasphemy, I know.
After the 1960s, we jump straight to the 1990s. We skipped over a lot of the stuff. I hear most of that was just sub-par at best. We do get into modern Disney, but don’t touch upon the Pixar stuff. Enjoy the rest of the pictures.
