Quote of the day

"Historically speaking, animating female characters [is] really, really difficult, ’cause they have to go through these range of emotions, but they’re very, very - you have to keep them pretty and they’re very sensitive to - you can get them off a model very quickly. So, having a film with two hero female characters was really tough, and having them both in the scene and look very different if they’re echoing the same expression; that Elsa looking angry looks different from Anna being angry."

Disney's lead animator Lino Disalvo on the making of Frozen, the new remake of The Snow Queen. Those pesky women and their emotions making them impossible to tell apart, eh? That and the fact that you've got to ensure they're "pretty"...
