About this title


From Steamboat Willie to The Lion King, the Walt Disney Studio's contribution to animation has been unparalleled. This unprecendented look at the creative processes behind the scenes at the Disney studio offers a wealth of magnificent animation art from uncompleted films stored in the vast Disney Archives. Photos.


The Disney That Never Was: The Stories and Art from Five Decades of Unproduced Animation is a celebration of drawings from uncompleted films that were "simply too beautiful to leave in their folders." Some of the ideas and projects were abandoned for obvious reasons--a lack of time, money, or resources--but certainly not for lack of ingenuity. Charles Solomon, internationally respected critic and historian of animation, has gleaned the best of these unused animation drawings, storyboards, gags, and concept art, all of which make their first public appearances in this book. From Mickey, Donald, and Goofy sketches to Hans Christian Andersen roughs to wartime propaganda films to early versions of Fantasia, this book allows a delightful inside glimpse into the world of Disney.
