Fanimation: From Disney World to Sin City
Nearly a century ago, a man named Walt Disney dreamt up his iconic Mickey Mouse, which would later flourish into cartoons, movies, mascots, and, literally, a whole World of Disney, where everything was bright and cheery and forever known as the happiest place on earth. A few decades ago, a man named Frank Miller dreamt up his iconic Sin City, which would later flourish into a comic book graphic novel, movies, sequels, and, figuratively, a whole city of sin, where everything was black and white and forever known as the grim and grittiest place on earth. So what would happen if the two concepts collided…? The result is the fan-made Disney’s Sin City
The fanimation uses the soundtrack and audio from the trailer for the 2005 Sin City film, mixed with the visuals of a dozen or so Disney animated movies. The result is a very well made mashup, mixing two genres never really meant to be mixed. Not only do the Disney characters lineup to their respective “roles” in the trailer, but the creator also gave each a Sin City type style, de-saturating and reducing the colors in sections, while allowing some colors to remain strong and bold.
Included in the mix are scenes from Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Aladdin, The Rescuers, The Great Mouse Detective, 101 Dalmatians, Sleeping Beauty, and others – some in flashes too quick to fully identify, but intentionally so, to match the original cinematic source. What else did you see? And what do you think should be in there that wasn’t?[Source: chiefbrodyrules]
