Ric Sluiter from Disney visited today. He talked about how he definetly felt that Disney was going to return back to 2D, specifically referencing the fact that they would start producing 2D Oswald shorts. He also showed some pre-production art on 'A Few Good Ghosts,' a feature that was canned in mid-development. He told us that he is currently working on Chris Sander's American Dog (the story goes something like: "American Dog tells the story of a dog named Henry, a famous TV star, who one day finds himself stranded in the Nevada desert with a testy, one-eyed cat and an oversized, radioactive rabbit who are themselves searching for new homes."), and even answered a question about how Rapunzel, Unbraided (whose story goes something like this:"Sick to death of storybook endings where true love conquers all, a frustrated witch brings two romantically-challenged teenagers from the real world into the classic fairytale, and transforms them into the legendary long-haired heroine and her gallant prince.") was coming along (Glen Keane's tests were apparently stunning).
Some stuff from American Dog (via Jim Hill Media that was shown at Siggraph:
Here's a test shot from American Dog via Ain't It Cool News.
Some stuff from Rapunzel Unbraided (via Jim Hill Media as well):
And I found these shots off the Character Design Blog
He had some really cool art direction stuff to show off, such as the artists that inspired the style of several films (such as A.J. Casson for A Few Good Ghosts). No pictures were allowed, but it was definetly cool to see them come down.
