“People always talked about Roy as the idiot nephew. That was his nickname. Nothing could be further from the truth. He was smart, unassuming and powerful.  You could easily underestimate him, but you did so at your own peril.” – Peter Schneider

Brief Synopsis –Documentary that tells how Disney Animated Studios reinvented themselves in the 1980’s in order to find ways to produce much more effective and powerful movies.

Bottom Line – Amazing documentary that is ale to chronicle the reemergence of Disney Animated studios after so the lull of nearly twenty years after the death of Walt. The film is able to give us so much insight into the various moves that were made by the studio in order to make radical changes in their marketing, their vision and ultimately, their stories. The interviews in this film are s fascinating to listen to because we get to see first hand how everything began to change.  Looking at the films that came out during the late 1980’s and early 90’s proves how effective these changes truly were. Highly Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The film does not mention who sent the fake memo around the studio that announced the renaming of all of Disney’s animated films. It was animator Ed Gombert. (From IMDB)

Rating – Oscar Worthy (9/10)
