Did you know that the head of Pixar (as well as the director of Walt Disney Animation Studios) John Lasseter and his animation team came up with ideas for the animated films “Finding Nemo”, “Monster Corporation” and “WALL-E” at the only lunch meeting in 1994 year? And all the cartoons of the 90s created at Disney date back to the period called Disney Renaissance, since in these 10 years the company’s earnings exceeded $ 3.9 billion? Yes, cartoons themselves are capable of amazing imagination, but it’s even more fun to learn something new about them.
We at Happy Worthy Life are sure that after reading our article you will definitely want to review your favorite masterpieces again.
1. For greater credibility, the cartoon The Incredibles (although much more), Pixar animators made smiles on all the heroes based on real models of dental casts of studio workers.
2. In the film “Lilo and Stitch” on David’s neck you can see the same hook that appears after 14 years in the character Maui from the animated film “Moana”.
3. It’s hard to believe that the production of the animated film Rapunzel: A Tangled Story ($ 260 million) was much more expensive than shooting the movie Avatar by James Cameron ($ 237 million). By the way, Rapunzel is the jubilee 50th Disney cartoon.
4. In the LEGO cartoon, you could pay attention to a character who tried to glue a crack in his helmet with superglue. This curious fact is based on a real event: LEGO released a batch of defective men whose helmets were constantly cracking.
5. The real name of the little girl Boo from the Monster Corporation is Mary.
6. To promote their new cartoon, Ratatouille, Disney and Pixar wanted to release their own wine line, but the project was canceled after the public rebelled.
7. The output of the movie “Finding Nemo” on the populations of clown fish was extremely negative. After showing the picture, these fish became so famous that everyone wanted to get such a marine inhabitant, and this almost led to the extinction of the species.
8. The moment in the cartoon “Lady and the Tramp” when Jim gives his wife a hat box with a puppy is autobiographical. That’s how Walt Disney made a Christmas present to his wife. True, a Chow Chow puppy jumped out of the box.
10. We might not have seen part 2 of Toy Story, since all the materials in this cartoon were accidentally destroyed. And only by chance, the animator Galin Susman had a copy on the home computer.
11. A curious detail from the same film universe. On the globe that stands in Andy’s room, not Russia, but the USSR.
12. The artists created the image of the protagonist from Beauty and the Beast, inspired by the lion’s mane, buffalo’s head and beard, gorilla eyebrows, wild boar fangs, a bear’s body and wolf legs. From the human, the Beast has only eyes.
13. And the animators of the cartoon The Little Mermaid, in order to reliably convey the movement of Ariel’s hair, watched the astronaut Sally Ryde in zero gravity.
14. When the cartoon “The Princess and the Frog” was released on large screens, about 50 children were hospitalized with a diagnosis of salmonella. As you probably guessed, they went looking for enchanted princes to spell their kiss.
15. The name of the robot WALL-E from the cartoon of the same name is an abbreviation. The main character was named in honor of the founder of the studio, Walter Elias Disney (Walter Elias – WALL-E).
16. It’s hard to believe that Li Shang from the cartoon “Mulan” owes his flexibility and dexterity to Bruce Willis. It was from this actor that the movements of the main character’s lover were copied.
18. The name of Prince Philip from the cartoon “Sleeping Beauty” was not chosen by chance. He was so named after the Duke of Edinburgh, husband of Queen Elizabeth II.
