“This is a festival sure to excite animation fans of all ages,” said James Wood, operations and stage production for The El Capitan Theatre.  “When these pictures were first released, we were privileged to present most of them in their original engagements, including the world premiere engagement of ‘Frozen.’  These films are now considered classics, and we are proud to be presenting them again, many of which have not been seen on the big screen since their initial releases.  We are thrilled to be bringing the filmmakers to talk about these special films and this will be the first time El Capitan guests can hear them talk about their work.  Our guests will also have a larger picture of the scope of Walt Disney Animation Studios by seeing the short subjects created during that time.”
