Disney recycled scenes to save time.
And people are bashing Frozen because…?
to save time? it was to save MONEY. back in what we now call the “Disney Dark Ages” they did not have the funds to be able to create everything from scratch, so scenes, character models, backgrounds, etc would be xeroxed. traditional animation is EXPENSIVE. a lot of original cels do not exist anymore because they had to use the cel sheets over and over!
a big reason why people shit on Frozen using the same design on three different characters and not for xeroxing back in the day is because Disney, in this day and age, as one of the wealthiest corporations in the world, ABSOLUTELY has the funds to not need to re-use the same model over and over.
The Aristocats and The Jungle Book had a budget of $4 million. Robin Hood's budget was 1.5 million. The Rescuers was a measly 1.2 million.
The budget for Frozen was $150 million. It made $1,263,716,698 at the box office. Disney, in 2014, with all it’s money and skilled employees, has NO excuse for re-using designs.
