The Goofy Movie – Real Life Version

I suggest that Disney’s The Goofy Movie is one of the overlooked gems of Walt Disney’s animation pantheon. It was Kevin Lima’s coming out party as an Animation Director and largely a production of the short-lived French branch of Walt Disney Animation aka DisneyToon Studios.

I’m not the film’s only fan. Check out Ted Soward’s fan-made reconstruction of the first few minutes from the film. They’ve taken the animated sequence and remade it using real life people, scenes, and backgrounds. Production of this video required $100, a borrowed camera, over 90 friends and family, Final Cut Pro, six months of free time, and a lot of creating Imagineering.

Check it out, I think you’ll be impressed.
