HK Disney unveils “Art of Animation”
Hong Kong Disneyland has unveiled Art of Animation, a new attraction that aims to educate park goers on the process of animation.
The attraction consists of a life size Zoetrope, a mechanism that creates an illusion of motion from a rapid movement of static pictures, and will also feature 3D figures of Disney characters from "Toy Story" and "Toy Story 2." New section also takes visitors through the history of Disney toons, running from cell animation classics such as "Snow White" through today's CGI pics including "Toy Story" and "Ratatouille."
The theme park has been plagued by poor attendance and license fee disagreements with The Mouse House since its opening in 2005, as well as criticisms that it is too small. "Art of Animation" is the last of four planned operational improvements for this year.
