Disney to Return to 2-D Animation

Via Colleen Doran comes this welcome news. It seems that the head of Pixar, now also the head of Disney Feature Animation is set on rejuvinating the Disney animation shop focusing upon the hand drawn techniques that made Disney great.

"We will be bringing back hand-drawn (two-dimensional) films," said Disney's Ed Catmull, the President of Pixar and Disney Feature Animation....SNIP....He said Disney would do both computer animation and hand-drawn animation.

This is good to hear. Pixar is the best thing to have happened to Disney in a long time IMHO.
