David Koenig has written several Disney behind the scenes books, most notably MOUSE TALES and MORE MOUSE TALES I have only read MOREso far which give an all encompassing look at the inner workings of Disneyland.Here Koenig tackles the crown jewel of the Disney empire the Animated features One by one each feature starting with SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS gets a full chapter that begins with an outline of the original source material, followed by the Disney development of the final fil David Koenig has written several Disney behind the scenes books, most notably MOUSE TALES and MORE MOUSE TALES I have only read MOREso far which give an all encompassing look at the inner workings of Disneyland.Here Koenig tackles the crown jewel of the Disney empire the Animated features One by one each feature starting with SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS gets a full chapter that begins with an outline of the original source material, followed by the Disney development of the final film including elements which didn t make it past the development or testing stages a list of perceived plot holes, bloopers and hidden images or Easter eggs , then ending with the critical and public reception and what impact in terms of rides, attractions or presence each film has had on the theme parks again even including abandoned ideas and outline the evolution of many of them over time.Not every feature gets a dedicated chapter Fun and Fancy Free, Melody Time both which really are just low rent cousins to Fantasia , The Adventures of Ichabod Crane and Mr Toad and the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh are relegated to minor mentions perhaps because they are essentially short films compiled together to make a feature, and Saludos Amigos, The Three Caballeros, The Black Cauldron and The Rescuers Down Under for some reason again just get mentions and not dedicated chapters maybe for space In addition, the live action animated hybrids Mary Poppins, Bedknobs and Broomsticks, Pete s Dragon and Who Framed Roger Rabbit make the cut.Each section of the Disney animation period is prefaced with an overview of what was going on in the studio and the animation department at the time, and these are much stronger than the separate film sections which eventually feel tiresome and repetitive It is obvious that Koenig is most passionate about the theme park rides as those seem to be stronger than his breakdown of the movies themselves His perceived plot hole gaffes sometimes feel as though he is reaching and missed the point of the fact that it s a animated film and some creative license is taken for gags and characterization one for instance why would the prince that is transformed into the Beast answer his own door and meet the Gypsy who turned him into a Beast when he has a staff of servants I mean, the opening narration never actually SAYS he opens his own door Again this and many of the other observations aren t all that necessary compared to the hidden items and bloopers.Some of the movies feel like they get shorted Like for instance P.L Travers interference in the making of Mary Poppins gets a paragraph or so, even though thanks to the recent SAVING MR BANKS we all know that it was quite an ordeal The Lion King as well when released, the highest grossing animated film of all time gets only a few pages whereas Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast getreal estate.I think what makes his theme park booksinteresting is that many of the stories he covers oral and otherwise are simply not well known, while the production and history of the Animated films has been covered countless times in other books, not to mention that the films themselves are readily available for viewing in theaters, on TV, on Disc and now through Digital Applications like Disney Movies for the iPad A lot of this stuff is already out there and most Disneyphiles have it covered and beyond.Released in 1997, the final feature covered in the book is the 1996 film THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME, so nothing is covered from HERCULES through FROZEN of course not the fault of the book just pointing it out and no mention of Pixar which at that point had only released TOY STORY Then again this is about the DISNEY animation studios, and the impact of TOY STORY and PIXAR at that point was far from being felt, so not faulting the book for that either.Worth reading if you want to get all the information you can about the Disney animated features, however almost better as a resource that is digested when you view one of the films and feel like getting the back story on it rather than sitting down and reading it all the way through like I just did
