You thought those lions did everything in one take? Guess again.
For the BluRay release of The Lion King we partnered with Legendary Disney producer Don Hahn to create new animation synced with actual outtakes from the original voice recording sessions. The result? A hilarious piece full of mispronunciations, burps, and vocal warmups.
The project called for top shelf feature quality animation that not only looked amazing, but perfectly matched the look and feel of the original characters. To do this we brought in some of the original animators from the feature themselves.
We created all the new animation for this piece, from boards to rough animation and all the way through clean up and ink & paint.
