Back to Enchantment

back_to_enchantmentA documentary about Don Bluth and Gary Goldman who established an animation production studios in Ireland to rival Disney in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Written and directed by Callan, the film was commissioned by Bluth, and tied in with the release of the Warners’ animation classic, Thumbelina. “Don and Gary were animation renaissance artists,” says Callan. “They and they alone were responsible for kick-starting classical animation in the wake of Disney’s abandonment of the form after Walt died. Without Don and Gary there would never have been a Lion King, nor the new, dynamic wave of millennial old-style animation movies.”
