It’s no exaggeration to say that Disney‘s allure is a multi-generational affair. From 26 October 2019 till 29 March 2020, visitors to the ArtScience Museum can revisit close to a century’s worth of animation styles and legacy in the brand new exhibition Disney: Magic of Animation.
The event draws upon the archives of the Walt Disney Animation Research Library to present stunning original artworks from Steamboat Willy all the way to Frozen 2. Yes, you read it right – images (and possibly a forested zone) from the yet-unreleased sequel is already made available for public viewing – a rare opportunity from the House of Mouse.
There are five segments, each presenting a thematic process, as it charts the journey from pencil and paper to the digital techniques that has been woven into Disney’s storytelling over the years.
But even past the themes, every visitor will surely find their own favourites in the form of individual galleries for each title. This trip down memory lane will surely ignite numerous nostalgic moments, as you wander through the path and take in all of the works.
As you put classics like Bambi, Dumbo and Sleeping Beauty, next to Big Hero 6, Wreck-it Ralph and Zootopia, you not only encounter a brilliant juxtaposition of styles, but you also easily see how Walt Disney has mastered the art of animation – through unceasing innovation in techniques, and an acumen to tell timeless stories.
Tickets are available for purchase from 1 October 2019 at all Marina Bay Sands box offices and website. Terms and Conditions apply.
