2D or not 2D

Seward Street has a post on the return of hand-drawn animation, including the impending return of "traditional" animation under the new Pixar-Disney merger.

Getting into the realm of rumor and hearsay, a post on an animation message board said that master Disney animator Glen Keane (supervising animator of Ariel, the Beast, and Aladdin among others), who is directing Rapunzel as a computer-animated movie, was asked if he'd like to switch the project back to hand-drawn, but decided he'd rather continue with the plan to do it with computers. Hopefully the new regime will at least change the title back to "Rapunzel" instead of the most recent (presumably studio-imposed) working title, "Rapunzel Unbraided."
