Seeing Double? Here’s How Disney Recycles Their Own Animation

Proof that Walt Disney was an early pioneer when it came to reusability.

YouTube channel Movie Munchies just released a video that clearly illustrates how Disney used to constantly recycle their old footage for new movies—a practice that, until now, only few have ever noticed. The clips show how the artists would draw over older animation cells to create new-looking scenes, which is strikingly obvious when you see an example of how Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty have identical dance scenes. Was it a lazy move on the animators’ part? Was Disney too cheap to pay for new scenes? The answer probably lies somewhere in the fact that hand-drawing movies back in the day took forever.
