In the spirit of Meet the Robinsons' forward-looking ideals, we've made some sharables with our favorite Walt Disney quotes that we think.
But you feel the flesh, you feel the muscles, you feel the chins and knees. They referred to Disney animation from the 50s as the present while in the future things zip around like Warner Bros. After six months of boarding the movie and putting them up on reels, production began in with a crew of Given Joyce's retro style -- influenced by everything from Technicolor movies to '40s architectural design -- Anderson and his design team looked for dramatic contrasts to depict the present and future.
According to art director Robh Ruppel, who studied, among other things, the way cinematographers Vittorio Storaro Reds and Caleb Deschanel The Natural handle period looks, the philosophy could be summed up thusly: Every time he thinks about the past, every time he gets further from his answer, we pull more color out. Every time we go into the past, we pull most of the blues and the higher saturated colors out. The present is in between those worlds, color wise: In the shape design, we tried to keep the present day very boxy and square.

So that when you go to the future, the view is unobstructed, the building shapes are very curved. There's pleasantness to it. It's just one big giant factory. We talked a lot about Apple products: Soft, happy, puffy clouds, blue skies and bubbles. The Incredibles was a definite inspiration for this. It was eye-popping to me, and certainly part of my education in 3D and how to do character animation with all of its subtleties. We looked at a lot of Warner Bros.
Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella and Peter Pan were Disney inspirations as far as combining believable characters with much more caricatured ones in the same scenes.Meet The Robinsons - Little Wonders (HD) By Rob Thomas
In the future, things move a little bit faster and are quirkier and more off beat, with characters that can zip around like Warner Bros. It creates shadows based on the proximity of one object to another. It's a way to avoid that glowy feel that computer animation has or the way mouths look like they're illuminated from inside.
Occlusion, because it's a closed space in there, will darken that mouth immediately. Then when we add our texture and lighting on top of that, you have a bit more real look to the images you're creating. It took a while because I'm so used to how you create the impression of space in 2D: In 3D, it's still an impression, it's still an illusion, but it's that much greater. What is the texture of a certain character or a certain building material?

These base set templates allowed certain blend shapes to be spread across a similar topology on different types of rig structures. After Shock is a dynamics tool built off of Maya's tool that allowed them to calculate speed, velocity and direction of, say, Lewis' head turning. And the animator could dial in the amount of drag and resistance and to spit that out basically for free. We could then bake it out and then simplify the baking out so that the animator could use every bit of it or hand-tweak [what they don't like] themselves, or run a simulation on that part if they like.
Just ways to speed things up and give them more time for the performance, because that's where Steve and I really wanted to focus. That's why he hired assistants to deal with wrinkles and interpenetrations of characters.
With Lewis, you get much more grounded, traditional Disney animation, classic Peter Pan, strong anticipation, nice round arcs, whereas the future with Wilbur is much snappier, to look at characters like Daffy Duck, where you get into a one-frame pose, very sharp, very abrasive in their nature.
We had a nice time playing with those two worlds in animation. The Emperor's New Groove Screenshot Patrick Warburton, the voice of Kronk, made up his own theme song and sang it for the scene where Kronk smuggles Kuzco out of the palace. Disney's legal department found out that he had created a song and had to have Warburton sign a release turning over the composition rights.
Previous films have included pregnant women, but always seen through things like knitting and dates on a calendar. The Emperor's New Groove Screenshot Bucky the Squirrel was never originally intended to be in the film — he was just included to make people laugh during storyboarding. However, when he succeeded in getting those laughs, he was included in the movie and became a recurring character.
The Viking shield Milo holds up toward the beginning of the film is a remnant of that opening. The Lost Empire Screenshot After one of the Aqua-Evacs explodes against the ceiling in the grease trap, the filmmakers recommend looking for the toilet seat that comes flying toward the camera amongst all the other debris. The Lost Empire" included a mystic named Zoltan. According to the filmmakers, after the character was cut, it took a while for them to realize that his voice still appeared in the roll call that takes place after the bridge collapse, indicating that he was all right.
The suggestion to put it in Hawaii instead made everyone sit back and go, "Hmmm. Never thought of that. Stitch was originally going to be part of a gang, and Jumba Stitch's creator in the finished film was one of his fellow gangsters. In this story, Jumba was going to have been left behind during a bank heist and subsequently imprisoned for a lengthy amount of time.
When Jumba is in prison in the finished film, you can see the original background that went along with this storyline, complete with tick marks counting the days he had spent in prison.
In making Elvis part of the story, though, the filmmakers ran into a roadblock: They had done all four. Disney went to the Elvis estate, screened the film for them and got permission to use him and his music in the movie.
Originally this chase was supposed to be between a and a spaceship, and was set in town. After the events of September 11,the filmmakers said the scene they once found funny was no longer funny, and quickly changed the crafts and settings of the chase. The spaceship was colored red, white and blue in memory of the events of Treasure Planet Screenshot Patrick McGoohan, the voice of Billy Bones, had a very bad cold when he recorded his lines, which turned out to be perfect for his phlgemy, coughing character.
Treasure Planet Screenshots John Silver's striped pants were such a pain to animate that the people in charge of cleaning up the drawings begged for a costume change. They got the desired change about halfway through the movie.
Pirates were killed off in order of how difficult they were to draw. Treasure Planet Screenshot "Treasure Planet" was released inbut it was originally pitched at the same meeting where "The Little Mermaid" was pitched — clear back in The filmmakers said it was actually good that it took so long to make the film because it allowed real-world technology to develop into what the story really needed.
His character was a rival inventor who, desperate to beat Cornelius Robinson, traveled back in time to ruin Lewis' science fair. In the finished film, his storyline is quite different.
The villain wore a bowler hat in early versions of the story, and its arbitrariness irked writer Don Hall enough that he wrote an explanation for it, thus creating the character of the evil bowler hat Doris. Doris began life as a sidekick, but script changes soon promoted her to the true villain of the movie.
Keep Moving Forward
Meet the Robinsons Screenshot While Wilbur flies Lewis through the future city, look for Disneyland's Space Mountain located in Tomorrowland and the modernized sign in front of it. Meet the Robinsons Screenshot Casting younger actors in an animated film is always a race against nature, and in "Meet the Robinsons," the filmmakers lost — twice.
Daniel Hansen was cast as the original voice of Lewis, but nature required the filmmakers to find another Lewis. Jordan Fry took over and matched so well that there are lines in the movie that are half Daniel and half Jordan. Wesley Singerman was cast as Wilbur, but again, nature took over and the filmmakers had to search for a second voice that could match what he had recorded for the character.
When they couldn't find a voice to match year-old Wesley, they re-recorded all of his dialogue with a year-old Wesley. Meet the Robinsons Screenshot The film sequence introducing the Robinson family includes a Tom Selleck joke, and filmmakers were required to get permission to use his image.
It made sense, then, to also get Tom Selleck to do the voice of the character who was purported to resemble him, which is exactly what Disney did.

After striking a deal with the villain Dr. Facilier, Louis gained the ability to play the trumpet but was turned into an alligator.
The storyline was eventually cut because it was too complicated. The Princess and the Frog Screenshot Randy Newman, who wrote the music for "The Princess and the Frog," recorded voices several times for different characters because each time he voiced a character, that character was either cut an otter or the lines were dropped a turtle.
Newman made it in — and stayed in — as the firefly Cousin Randy. The Princess and the Frog Screenshot During the Mardi Gras parade scene, watch for floats that pay homage to Disney — there's a mermaid float, an Arabian knights float, a Greek mythology float and a pirate float. Tangled Screenshot The look of "Tangled" hero Eugene Fitzherbert aka Flynn Rider was decided through what filmmakers called, "the hot man meeting. Using those notes, filmmakers were then able to develop the final design.
