Blue Sky had a screening of “Bolt” for the crew on Friday. I consider myself a fan of Disney and what they do, but their past couple films have left me a feeling a little disappointed. With this in mind, I went into the screening not knowing what to expect. After the previews an animation from Mickey’s first appearance in “Steamboat Willie” was playing and the signature of Walt Disney was written across the screen.
This really caught my attention and before the movie even started, I felt like what I was about to see was going to be something special. The opening sequence with Bolt as a puppy blew me away. It was some of the best dog animation I’ve seen since “Lady and the Tramp”. The pigeons were particularly noteworthy because their performance animation was new and refreshing. Overall, I really loved the film!! The story was clear and the characters were fun and appealing. If you haven’t seen it yet…GO!!! You won’t be disappointed. Congrats to Disney and all who worked on “Bolt”!!
