The animator’s desk showcases time-lapses of character creation, introducing you to the talented animators who have contributed to Disney’s enduring legacy.
Global Perspectives and Learning:
The exhibition goes beyond the studio walls, highlighting the global breadth of Disney films. Discover the diverse settings of beloved movies, from Mulan’s adventures in China to the enchanting landscapes of Beauty and the Beast in France. Drawing tables along the way invite visitors to learn the art and craft of animation, catering to both seasoned artists and budding enthusiasts eager to explore the world of animation.
