Artist Depicts Disney Characters Before VFX

While we Disniacs may not be dying for more remakes of our favorite childhood movies, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t interested in seeing behind the scenes of these live-action remakes. More and more CGI and other VFX are being used to bring the movie magic to life, and we can’t get enough of the “before and after” pictures.

But what if VFX was used for the original Disney classics? Well, one artist took it upon himself to answer that question. Andhika Muksin (IG: @andhikamuksin) took it upon himself to show us some “behind the scenes” pictures of some of the most iconic frames of Walt Disney Animation. And we have to say, we are not disappointed with the results.

Here are a few examples of his work:

The Little Mermaid

Aladdin (1992)

Alice in Wonderland

Filmmaking with VFX

VFX has drastically evolved over the years to allow filmmakers such as Jon Favreau to produce amazing pictures using computer-generated imagery. But, it can also involve some of the most awkward moments of an actor’s or actress’ career as some guy has to stand in as the CGI image or character. And these hilarious pictures only slightly exaggerate the situation. We can imagine Ariel having to look up at some poor unfortunate soul contorted into the shape of a bird and having to pretend it’s already Scuttle. But, Aladdin most likely would not have to balance on a guy’s hands and feet like that.

Disney has incorporated VFX such as motion capture and CGI in a variety of degrees in its remakes from Cinderella to The Lion King. It will be interesting to see how they choose to utilize visual effects in The Little Mermaid remake.
