Pinocchio is a classic film created by the Walt Disney Studios in 1940. This was the second full length animated feature created by the Walt Disney Studios and was created after the huge success of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. To this day Pinocchio is still considered Disney’s greatest achievementand a great representation of the studios work during its golden age.
There are many techniques that the Disney’s Studio used that set the bar high for other animation studios during this time, which include rotoscoping, good story plots, storytelling, and the great use of color. During this time not all studios had the technology to create animations with the use of all 3 of the primary colors. Throughout the film the Disney Studio creates a world of amazing color that was very new for its time. They also used an animation technique called rotoscoping throughout the film to really capture a realistic motion of a human.
Compared to other animated films of the late 1930’s and the early 1940’s Pinocchio can’t really be compared to others because there really aren’t many feature-animated films at this time, especially in color. Before this film Disney had its first huge success Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was a huge leap in animation for Disney’s Studios. At this time Disney was entering its golden age where they created many films such as Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, and Bambi, films that are loved by many even today.
