Yesterday at the Annecy festival, Disney premiered their newest theatrical short, titled Once Upon a Studio, which will be released in front of Wish this holiday season. It's a special "top secret" project that celebrates and pays tribute to the past 100 years of Disney Animation.

Here's what we know about it so far:

  • In a scenario comparable to Night at the Museum, the film involves Mickey Mouse and other Disney characters coming to life from the walls of Walt Disney Animation Studios after-hours, climaxing in a photo shoot.
  • The film will combine hand-drawn animation, CG animation and live-action, and will feature appearances by more than 400 characters from the past century.
  • It will feature a cameo appearance by Bunny Mattinson, who sadly died earlier this year.
  • Over forty actors will return to voice their respective characters. Archival recordings will also be used, with the Genie being "voiced" by the late Robin Williams via previously unreleased audio.
  • The film is directed by Trent Correy and Dan Abraham, who had collaborated earlier on the Frozen short Once Upon a Snowman. Eric Goldberg supervised the 2D animation (similar to his role in Get a Horse!), while Andrew Feliciano (Raya and the Last Dragon) supervises the CG animation.

Nice so far. Would like to see the studio do another project blending traditional and CG characters like a feature (would be a good way to dip their toes back to more traditional animation films).
