Overview

«C’est plutôt amusant de faire l’impossible.»

— Walt Disney

Esprit parmi les plus créatifs du XXe siècle, Walt Disney a élaboré un univers imaginaire unique et inégalé. Peu de classiques du 7e art ont autant révolutionné la narration cinématographique et enchanté des générations successives sur tous les continents que son incroyable collection de dessins animés.

Dans cet ouvrage TASCHEN, premier volume d’une des publications illustrées les plus complètes sur les dessins animés Disney, quelque 1.500 images et des essais signés par d’éminents spécialistes de Disney nous transportent en plein cœur du studio à l’époque de son «âge d’or de l’animation». Ce livre de référence retrace la fabuleuse épopée de l’animation Disney: le muet, puis le premier long-métrage, Blanche-Neige et les sept nains (1937), l’expérimental et novateur Fantasia (1940), et ses derniers chefs-d’œuvre, Winnie l’Ourson et l’arbre à miel (1966) et Le Livre de la jungle (1967).

Grâce à des recherches approfondies dans les collections historiques de la Walt Disney Company et dans des collections privées, l’éditeur Daniel Kothenschulte s’appuie sur les précieuses peintures concept et les story-boards pour dévoiler le processus de fabrication de ces chefs-d’œuvre de l’animation. Les magistrales planches d’assemblage des cellules fournissent des illustrations très détaillées de scènes restées célèbres, tandis que de rares clichés pris par les photographes de Disney et des extraits des conférences de rédaction entre Walt et son équipe permettent une incursion privilégiée dans le processus créatif de l’illustre maison.

Un chapitre est consacré à chacun des grands films d’animation réalisés du vivant de Walt, dont Pinocchio, Fantasia, Dumbo, Bambi, Cendrillon, Peter Pan, La Belle et le Clochard et Les 101 Dalmatiens, sans oublier les trésors plus confidentiels comme les courts métrages expérimentaux de la collection Silly Symphonies et les films musicaux à épisodes comme La Boîte à musique et Melodie Cocktail, sous-estimés, qui ont tous bénéficié de la même attention et des mêmes recherches méticuleuses. Un grand nombre de projets inaboutis, parmi lesquels une proposition de suite pour le légendaire dessin animé musical Fantasia ou un hommage à Davy Crockett par le peintre Thomas Hart Benton, figurent aussi dans le livre aux côtés d’œuvres originales rarement vues. Au fil des pages, les contributions d’experts reconnus comme Leonard Maltin, Dave Smith, Charles Solomon, J.B. Kaufman, Russell Merritt, Brian Sibley et Didier Ghez racontent la fabrication de chaque film.

Conscients que le style Disney est l’œuvre d’un travail collectif autant que du maître lui-même, les auteurs des Archives des films Walt Disney remercient les remarquables dessinateurs et designers qui ont influencé le style du studio, notamment Albert Hurter, Gustaf Tenggren, Kay Nielsen, Carl Barks, Mary Blair, Sylvia Holland, Tyrus Wong, Ken Anderson, Eyvind Earle et Walt Peregoy.
