Who killed Bambi?

Contrary to reports from Hollywood, Bambi is not dead. At least not in Sydney. At the top of a nondescript office block in the Haymarket sits the last surviving outpost of Walt Disney's hand-drawn animation empire - Disney cartoons as we know them.

Hundreds of artists are hunched over light tables, pencils in hand. A single animated feature film requires 500,000 individual drawings. In Disney's Sydney pipeline, Bambi, the sequel, and Lilo and Stitch 2 are taking shape.

It's interesting that this studio is suddenly in the news, print and television, after over 10 years of annonynmity. It looks like DizCo is trying to tell everyone that they aren't killing off traditional animation.
