Recycling, Disney Style

Geek Dave-jà vu

Ever since the release of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937 Disney have led the way in animated features. Over the last 78 years they have created thousands of hours of footage, and some of it has been recycled in a very clever way.

With millions of animation cels at their disposal, the Disney animators have occasionally taken a short cut to achieve their end goal. Using a technique known as rotoscoping, animators trace over existing footage, frame by frame, and then 'clean-up' the characters. For instance, did you know that the Sleeping Beauty dance scene was re-used in Beauty and the Beast? Well it was, the main characters share the same movements and actions with just Aurora cleaned-up as Belle, and Prince Charming cleaned-up as Beast.

Take a look at this video, from Movie Muchies, and prepare to have your mind blown...

You're never going to look at a Disney Classic in quite the same way again, are you?

But wait, there's more...
