Since the success of films like Tangled and Frozen, Disney has drastically shifted gears from traditional to CGI animation. Most studios have made this switch to CGI/3D animation because production can be faster and more efficient. Statistics also show that the younger generation is more attracted to CGI films.

Personally, I am a bigger fan of traditional, hand-drawn animation. I like the authentic feeling of the detailed backgrounds and features of each character. It feels as if someone’s illustrations are coming alive.

Though I find it kind of sad that we will be seeing less and less of these 2D animation films, I look forward to where Disney and other studios will take us with their modern 3D films.

In the meantime, enjoy this new find! Last year, Disney Animation artist Cory Loftis revealed some pieces of Frozen concept art. The scenes are from the sequence “Love is an Open Door” and give us a glimpse of what the movie may have looked like if it were in 2D.
