There are plenty of beautiful art to be seen. The pages are filled with sketches, storyboards, animation drawings, production drawings, background art, photos of Disney artists at work. The print quality is nice.
A lot of names are mentioned and there's no doubt Disney has some of the most talented artists around. Story artist Brenda Chapman is amazing at capturing the nuances, expressions and feelings of the characters with her storyboards. There are also production paintings from Hans Bacher that set the visual style for the film. The animation line drawings from the animators are wonderful as well. Glen Keane designed the Beast, inspired by a buffalo head he bought from a taxidermist shop.
The commentary follows the production of the film, from the history to the reception after it was screened. It even covers the updated edition for IMAX and the additional footage added. The stories and interviews are interesting and as with every movie, you'll be able to read all about the challenges of making an animated film. There's also a chapter on the Broadway adaption.
This is a great book that I can easily recommend to animation art lovers.
- The Art of Hercules: The Chaos of Creation
- The Art of The Hunchback of Notre Dame
- The Art of The Lion King
- The Art of Pocahontas (ISBN:0786861584)
- The Art of Mulan
(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
It's a great book with lots of storyboard art as well as Cleaned-up animation prior to color and yes it does have several production stills from the finished film. I think it's nice to see the progression from storyboard to finished product. If your a fan of this movie or collect Disney's "Making of" books then this will fit along nicely with any others you may have. That being said, I found Disney's Art of Animation by Bob Thomas much more informative and included more of the Behind the scenes photos and Glen Keane sketches.
As for the complaint about the pages covering the stage production... Look at the "sneak peek" preview that Amazon gives where you can randomly see pages from the book. There's a Table of Contents and Chapter IX clearly says, "Beauty & the Beast comes to the stage." It's clear so why complain?
So... I got it. Am I sorry I got it? Nope. I'll treasure it like I do all my other Disney books. Hope this review helps anyone with doubts about the paper quality issue. There's NO issue.
Whats worse is that there is an entire section devoted to the stage play adaptation. Meaning no disrespect, but i really don't care for costume design, or the effects of make-up.
There's also an underwhelming amount of concept art in general, and an over-abundance of animation stills from the film, which, when you already own the film, are kind of redundant.
Admittedly, being an artist myself, my needs from an art book are slightly biased towards 'unseen' and 'preliminary' designs.
This book is simply lacking, both in terms of quantity of art and also quality of print. The paper is pretty light-weight and the colour reproduction is flat and low grade.
I've got many 'art of' books, Including all the books from the always impressive 'insight Editions' and 'Chronicle' publishers. This sadly, is one of the poorest.
