Elementary, My Dear Disney Fan...
Twenty-two years ago today, Walt Disney Feature Animation put out what would be the subtle beginning of the Second Golden Age of Disney Animation...
"The Great Mouse Detective", based on Eve Titus book, "Basil of Baker Street" was released in America. It was directed by four great animators, Ron Clements, Burny Mattinson, Dave Michener and John Musker. Clements and Musker would go on to define the films that this animation Renaissance would be recognized as over the next decade. Their new film, "The Princess and the Frog", ironically the second of Lasseter's regime, comes out next year...
Let's cross our fingers that their magical touch works wonders on the Mouse House yet again.

"The Great Mouse Detective" still stands as one of my favorite animated films and I couldn't even tell you why! Most people I mention it to don't even remember it. I'm glad I get to see more from that creative team.
PS I love your blog! LOVE IT! :)
If there's anyone to bring about a new century renaissance for Walt Disney Animation Studios, it's Ron and John...and Lasseter...and crew.
I'm excited (now, if it could only get here fast enough. I'm tired of Pixar getting all the glory...;) jk)
Oooh! That's a good movie! :D I feel like watching it now!
