It’s called “Sketchbook”.
This new how-to documentary focuses on the art of Simba, Captain Hook, Mirabel, Kuzco, Genie, and Olaf in six separate episodes.
You can see them all come to life on screen and meet the people, your teachers, behind these iconic characters.
“We wanted it to be accessible and not feel like it was that expensive to get in,” said Jason Sterman, director and executive producer of the series. “The idea that hopefully you could find a pencil and a piece of paper anywhere and be surprised by your abilities.”
The series also features the work of Eric Goldberg, who drew Genie in the 1992 film Aladdin.
The beloved character was voiced by Robin Williams.
“Doing the Genie was actually my first Disney gig, you know? So I kind of landed on my feet there,” Goldberg said. “When people ask questions, it just shows how interested they are. They want to know, ‘What was he like? Yes!”
The exclusive experience gives viewers a new understanding of how these beloved characters come to life.
“When the show is at its best, learning how to draw isn’t necessarily the most important thing,” Sterman said. “One of the things that we really wanted to explore was the way of raising the curtain, if you will.”
“Drawing is our currency in the studio,” Goldberg said. “We definitely draw everything first. We deliver it differently when delivering a CG movie versus a hand drawn movie. But, you know, it all starts with the drawings, and I don’t think that’s ever going to go away.”
