Some folks are beginning to realize that classic 2D animation has a charm and visual appeal that is unique. One of the giants of Disney Animation, Mark Henn, has given an interview about the upcoming 2D animated feature on A.A. Milne’s classic Winnie the Pooh.


Classic animation techniques work best with these characters and in evoking the sensibility of the famous E.H. Shepard illustrations contained in the original books.

“We didn’t have any great debate here,” Henn says.

“I think everyone realized, when this project came up, [that] doing it by hand was the best way.”

Doing it by hand is almost always the best way!
