ALSO SOME TERRIBLE ANIMATION!
IT’S BARTOK THE MAGNIFICENT!
|"Hey, anyone here know what a bat looks like? Ah, I'll just guess."|
|Someone dramatically drinking a magic potion like they're in a Mountain Dew commercial is tough even with a budget.|
|Baba Yaga's weirdly flat nose must have been annoying to animate, and it adds nothing.|
|For some reason I'm not bothered that the bear has a hat, but the fact that it's full of marshmellons annoys me to no end.|
|"Okay, just put the 2D snow all over the CGI tower - no, it will look absolutely seamless, I promise."|
* He’s also really done hardly any animation work other thank the Simpsons. He was Venom on the 90s Spider-Man series, and a pair of chicks in "Hop", a movie that I have never seen and probably never will. Other than that and the artsy indie stuff i referenced before, it's all been live action character roles and stage stuff.
* There's a bit where Baba Yaga gives Bartok a potion that will amplify the goodness inside of him to make him a real hero. I'd assumed it was a Dumbo's magic feather deal, and the real magic was inside him all along, but then the villain drank it and turned into a dragon, so now I don't know what's what. * Speaking of, while she was transforming, her body slowly changed over the course of a song, with notable bulging of her chest and hips. When looking for images for this post, I found a SUSPICIOUS number of screencaps of this scene, IF YOU GET WHAT I AM IMPLYING ABOUT CERTAIN SCREENCAPPERS. * Given my writing speed, it might be a while, but I may as well tell you now, Volume 3 of this blog is "My Year With DisneyToon Studios". So that's fun.
* That's it. This movie's not worth too much thought. Here, have a crazy fanart.
