The exhibition offers visitors the rare opportunity to experience over 90 magical years of Disney animation. One of the highlights of the show is the debut of original artworks from the highly-anticipated film, Frozen 2. From Steamboat Willie (1928), the first Disney cartoon with a synchronised soundtrack, classic films including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and The Lion King (1994), to blockbusters such as Frozen (2013), Zootopia (2016) and Moana (2016), the exhibition pays homage to the artistry and technological innovation that have brought Disney’s world-renowned characters to life.
Shown in Southeast Asia for the first time, this landmark exhibition features over 500 exceptional art pieces, including original drawings, paintings, sketches and concept art curated by the Walt Disney Animation Research Library. In keeping with ArtScience Museum’s ethos of presenting captivating interactive exhibitions, the show also includes projections, audio-visual displays, alluring exhibits that transport visitors into the world of Disney’s films, and hands-on educational activities.
“Animation is an art form that literally brings still, static images to life. Whether it is a series of appealing line drawings, shot in sequential order to create a believable character, or complex digital imagery rendered to create a magical effect, animation has the power to transport the viewer into a world of imagination and beauty. The filmmakers and storytellers at Walt Disney Animation Studios have been creating, producing and pushing the boundaries of this medium for almost 100 years. We are thrilled to share this exhibition, Disney: Magic of Animation, with the people of Singapore and hope that the passion, creativity and artistry showcased in this exhibit will instill in the viewer a greater appreciation for what we believe is a truly unique 20th century art form,” said Mary Walsh, Managing Director of the Walt Disney Animation Research Library.
The Disney: Magic of Animation Experience will be presented in five chapters. Visitors will be able to see how the characters started as a two-dimensional illustration and brought to life by the Disney animators.
