The care with which these great masterpieces were restored was extraordinary, with the original negatives being updated to ensure that the original brilliance was not lost. Between upcoming disney moviesthat deserve a little tweaking to make them even more charming, 10 have been selected.
This is definitely one of my favorite films. Pinocchio 1940. The story of a puppet who wanted to be a child remains one of the most complex stories Disney has ever created. At the time of its release, it was well known how much Pinocchio had raised the bar in the world of character animation visual effects.
Be 1940s film and for scenes with a very complex composition, as in the case of relationships with Geppetto, Eat fireor in the belly of the Whale, surely 4K restoration may be absolutely necessary.
Disney with Fantasy in 1940 he created something mind-blowing. Sequences drawings in excellence synchronized with classical music, created a real masterpiece of animation. In this case, 4K remastering is simply necessary.
The ultimate goal is to not lose your natural visual and auditory beauty. Although some adjustments have been made in the past, we are still far from everything it has to offer viewers.
The story of a fawn who became an orphan is such a sad moment that even in adulthood he manages to shed tears. Little Bambi, along with other animals that live in the forest during the changing seasons, required more attention during its creation.
The variety of colors used in the original version, if they were retouched in the 4K restoration, could further excite those preparing to see it.
The Three Caballeros (1944)
In the past, Disney has worked on films set in South America, as is the case with Three Caballeros. This title will probably surprise most readers: why did you choose this Disney film?
The answer is easy to say. Since this is a feature film that features cultures known around the world for their vibrant colors, as is the case with Brazil or Latin America, a restoration that will add shine to the entire film is what it needs.
Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Who has never seen Alice in Wonderland? Here we are faced with a real chromatic explosion. The presence of vibrant characters, not to mention the settings, make the overall picture a work that borders on perfection.
Ability to distinguishing the real part from the dream part, is contained in the choice of colors. Interfering with the darker parts of the cartoon could make a difference.
Lady and the Tramp (1955)
How many times have you tried to recreate the sweet spaghetti and meatballs scene with your partner? Story Lady and the Tramp it made whole generations dream, although the main characters were not people. This Disney film holds a special place in the animation company’s history as it was the first to use the widescreen film scope for an animated film.
The perspective, setting and movement of the characters, which in this case are the dogs, resulted in a truly incredible end result. Imagine if this 1955 version was tweaked with a 4K version, what it could offer the public.
Sleeping Beauty (1959)
The use of the cinemascope format also continues. Sleeping Beauty, causing the background and characters to move even more freely. The world of fairy tales, in which a cursed princess lives and is protected by three good fairies, thanks to this format offers a new version of animation.
The drama of the story is expressed by the choice of various colors that perfectly match the princess’s state of mind. Little curiosity: Sleeping Beauty is one of the most expensive Disney films of all time.
The Sword in the Stone (1963)
Due to the very large budget used to create sleeping Beauty, Disney was forced to use a photocopier to continue production while keeping costs down. The Xerox process allowed the drawings of those responsible for their creation to be accurately copied directly into animation cells. After completing this step, all that remains is to color them.
Obviously, using such work led Disney to take steps backwards in creating perfect drawings. As in the case Sword in the StoneThe pencil lines typical of sketches are clearly visible and are left so that the sequence can be more fluid and, despite everything, endowed with its own character.
The Black Cauldron (1985)
Black Cauldron from Disney, it is still one of those productions that forces viewers to take different positions. Considered one of the worst animated films of all time, Disney tried to salvage what could be salvaged and bring audiences back to their side. Of course, going for a dark and violent story by Disney standards was no easy feat.
Only over the years did audiences learn to accept this film so much that they considered it a cult. Black Cauldron this is the first film to use computerized effects. So a 4K restoration could only be a good thing and pique the curiosity of new viewers.
The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996)
Disney animated films from the 90s were created and colored digitally using CAPS. Thus, scenes were able to acquire greater depth and clarity than ever before.
To make a film The Hunchback of Notre Dame Extreme care was taken to create accurate interiors of the famous Parisian cathedral. The warm and rich colors of the good guys contrasted with the dark and cool colors of the bad guys, creating the perfect balance in a story inspired by Victor Hugo’s original novella.
