The 85th annual Academy Awards had its share of unexpected moments and sequences – I’m sure Jennifer Lawrence did not expect to stumble as she walked up the stairs – but for many who appreciate everything Disney, surely it were the wins, losses and outright snubs that may have caused the most surprises.

This edition of Disney In Depth explores what Disney movies should have won, what should have been nominated, and what wins didn’t surprise whatsoever.

Paperman main characters

If anything John KahrsPaperman short, which was featured in front of Wreck-It Ralph, was nothing short of magical. The black-and-white short seamlessly integrated computer animation with hand-drawn animation and told a romantic story of man who will go to great lengths to share his feelings with a person he just met on a train. That combined with a great score, and you have yourself one of the best-animated shorts ever.

This is not an exaggeration either; Paperman was quickly seen as one of the possible winners for an Academy Award for Best Animated Sort.

So if you missed the film, then Disney is giving you another opportunity to see the short. The studio has released the 6-minute film online for you to see. Check it out here below.

The Walt Disney Company claimed a number of momentous milestones and achievements in 2012, such as boasting the highest-grossing film of the year (Marvel’s The Avengers).

This special edition of Disney In Depth looks back at the world of Disney in 2012, with my top 10 best in this edition, and “bottom” 10 worst (with some suggestions on how to remedy those problems) in next week’s edition.

At the bi-annual Destination D event at Anaheim’s Disneyland Hotel last week, the Disney D23 Official Disney Fan Club hosted a series of events that focused on the legendary history of Disney animated features. Hundreds of Disney fans gathered inside the resort’s convention center to obtain exclusive access to lectures, concerts and footage. Over the coming weeks inside Disney In Depth, I will cover some of those topics featured in the fascinating presentations held at Destination D. As for now, this edition will focus on the exciting future of the division we know as Disney animation.

Walt Disney Animation Studios appears like it is entering that third renaissance we have all been waiting for. With the beautiful The Princess and the Frog and delightful Tangled leading the way, the studio that suffered from creative missteps like Home on the Range is now producing hit films that resonate with audiences and appeal to critics to boot. During “Inside Walt Disney Animation Studios Today,” animator Darrin Butters hosted an appealing round-up of the studio’s newest projects.

Warning: This edition contains some spoilers of details mentioned at the event.

Disney In Depth: The State of the Disney Animated Short Film

For decades the Disney animated short films, starring the classic gang of Mickey and friends, dominated the screens with innocence and cheer. But that era is not one forgotten. Merely it exists in the past tense, just like the blockbuster musicals that made Disney, Disney. Nevertheless, Walt Disney Animation Studios is experiencing a period of re-growth, what some would argue could be the “third renaissance.” Tangled and the forthcoming Wreck-It Ralph are believed to represent that new beginning. In any case, the art of the short film within the studio is also undergoing a fantastic period of re-interest and ingenuity.

For much of the last decade, when Disney animation was arguably struggling in producing quality features, both in their theatrical and direct-to-video releases, developing short films was placed on the back-burner. Perhaps not intentionally, but they were relegated to little-seen pictures, film festivals, and bonus features on DVDs. The Annie Award-winning short Lorenzo, a charming little tale about a cat’s tail that takes over its life, is utterly creative. But where was this long-delayed piece played to audiences? Try the 2004 Kate Hudson romantic comedy Raising Helen, which underwhelmed at the box office. How was it decided that a short like this be paired with a PG-13 comedy starring Goldie Hawn’s daughter? Though each of these films is adorable in its own right, one must wonder why these were paired together.

Geek Peek: First Look At Disney’s Hand-Drawn/Computer Animated Hybrid Short ‘Paperman’

Paperman #1

Along with Disney’s new film Wreck-It Ralph, a new animated short film titled Paperman will also be released, much like Pixar Animation does with all of their movies.

Paperman actually fuses together hand-drawn and computer animation with a simplistic black and white presentation to offer a very unique new style of animated film. It tells the story of a lonely man who bumps into the girl of his dreams by chance on his morning commute and then watches her disappear just as quickly. But, as fate would have it, he spots her once again in a window across from where he works, leading him to figure out how to get her attention.

You can see the first images from Paperman below now!
