Disney has been making animated feature films since 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. In the decades that followed, we’ve come to expect specific things from the latest Disney movie. A great story, compelling songs, and interesting characters are a given. And so are beautiful and immersive visuals. In order to ensure their films’ characters are as visually compelling as possible, Disney starts with concept art. Through the creative process, the visual design of a movie’s characters inevitably evolve. Still, it’s fascinating to look back at where the film’s artists started when it comes to characters like Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent, Aladdin’s Jasmine, and Beauty and the Beast’s Beast. There are often huge differences between the original character concept art and what those characters look like in the final film. In this video, we’re exploring how beloved characters like Elsa from Frozen, Ariel from The Little Mermaid, and Scar from The Lion King would have looked if animators had gone with the character designs in their concept art. Needless to say, things could have been very different.
