“When the goddess of spring returned, there was a new day of happiness.”
I honestly have no idea what I just watched.
The first Disney in my big watch, and it’s a rather odd short. There’s no denying that this was impressive animation for 1934, while still a little primitive looking, it is without doubt a work of art.
It’s just a shame that the ‘story’ or lack thereof is rather odd and quite all over the place. I understand that this is one of Disney’s first shorts but even still, the story is completely bizarre.
I’m also happy that Disney, seemingly after this one decided to go against the whole operatic singing and making the shorts almost like you’re watching a play, it really didn’t work for me.
But as a first watch, I am sure things can only get better!
Next - Snow White and the Seven Dearfs.
