designing and animating a diverse cast of women is hard
translation: we’re afraid to make women look different and “ugly” by giving them emotions that aren’t cutesy and cuddly because that would give people the idea that they’re human and not dolls to sell for Disney profit
OR it took 3000 hours to get a single frame of animation for Merida because the hair was incredibly hard to animate as the article has said. Same thing for Violet Parr in the incredibles. Also for Frozen actual actresses were capped to realistic motions of their characters, even the slightest motions were animated to give them REALISM. Get it right people.
i’m laughing so hard OP literally gave evidence that guys can be given distinct designs and bodies and face shapes (and in Frozen so far ever major male character i’ve seen had a very distinct design) and people are still going “I-IT’S THE HAIR GUYS, THE HAIR TAKES….SO LONG TO ANIMATE…..IT’S REALISM *SWEATING*”
They did face capture! That’s why Anna and Elsa look exactly like Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel! They just happen to totally look like each other and to look exactly like Rapunzel, who looks like Mandy Moore! Because all women are identical to one another!
