Not often I put ‘wonderful’ and ‘Disney’ in the same sentence – not recently anyway – but this short film definitely is both of those. A tribute to hand drawn animation, apparently it’s a new piece of software that replicates that mid 20th century animation style – and dare I say also a classic Japanese anime influence – especially with the gentle tone and music only soundtrack? It’s as charming and wonderful as any Ghibli film, anyway.
But who cares about that, when you have such a lovely film and story. I hope this wins at the Oscars.
