Animation Magazine - - School Guide -

As we were com­pil­ing this book list, Dis­ney’s lat­est CGan­i­mated ice princess movie passed the $550 mil­lion mark at the box of­fice and be­came of the stu­dio’s most suc­cess­ful an­i­mated pic­tures. An­i­ma­tion his­to­rian Solomon takes us be­hind the scenes of this phe­nom­e­nal suc­cess story, pro­vid­ing in­ter­views with the di­rec­tors Jen­nifer Lee and Chris Buck, paired with a wealth of con­cept art, sto­ry­boards, char­ac­ter de­signs, en­vi­ron­men­tal work, props and mo­tifs, as well as pho­tos from a re­search trip to Nor­way. Over­all, read­ers will come away with a great ap­pre­ci­a­tion of how much work, artistry and tech­no­log­i­cal achieve­ment is in­volved in the mak­ing of a block­buster an­i­mated stu­dio movie th­ese days.
