Disney artists worked on many projects, both shorts and feature-length films, and their rich and varied work – whether in the form of concept art, animation drawings, storyboards, or gags – is a testament to the quality and innovation the studio achieved, even on unfinished projects. After a brief Introduction examining how the studio operated during Walt Disney’s day, Solomon surveys the many categories of uncompleted film, illustrating each with beautiful examples of work by the staff artists: Mickey, Donald, and Goofy shorts; Fairy Tale Projects like Hans Christian Andersen tales and the ambitious feature Chanticleer and Reynard; wartime propaganda films; early versions of Fantasia, and later efforts to expand elements of the film; and projects ranging from Hiawatha to Destino, a fantastic and unlikely collaboration between Disney and Salvador Dali.
