Reseña del editor
Disney Stories: Getting to Digital explores how Disney, the man and the company, used technological innovation to create characters and stories that engage audiences in many different media, in particular in Video Games and on the Internet.
Drawing on Disney films from the twenties and thirties, as well as the writings of historians, screenwriters and producers, Disney Stories: Getting to Digital explains how new film and animation techniques, many developed by Disney, worked together to evolve character and content development and produce entertaining stories that riveted audiences.
Through an insider’s perspective of Disney’s legendary creation process, the book closely examines how the Disney Company moved its stories into the digital world in the 1990s and the virtual, online communities of the 2000s. By embracing the digital era, Disney led storytelling and technological innovation by granting their audience the unique opportunity to take part in their creation process through their online games, including The Lion King Animated Story Book, Disney Blast and Toontown.
Disney Stories: Getting to Digital is intended for Disney fans and current practitioners looking to study the creation process of one of the most famous animation studios in existence. Professors teaching courses in new media, animation and interactive storytelling will also find this book a valuable asset.Ver Descripción del producto

The booked talked about how Disney progressed not only digitally but also with analog and narrative. The digital aspect revolutionized and grew its popularity, it contributes greatly to the “Disney” we know and love today in more than one-way. However, something fascinating that I picked up on, was the tone of the writer when in discussion of digital media. Initially when first reading this book, I wondered about where the writer stood in contributing to this knowledge. How factual was what I was reading? When I soon found out that they had worked with Disney for sometime, I began to understand more where the perspective was coming from.
The writer; Newton Lee had been a key engineer for Walt Disney’s Internet group. His recollection of Disney when he was working there were the focus on this book entirely. It went in to full detail about subjects like web presence, software used and created by Disney, the development of websites and productions and much more! The book covers all aspects digital but in a way that keeps readers tied in. I have read books about media, digital revolution, computer technology, and such that can easily become dry with spiting out facts and sentences that make the read feel like a task and less of an enjoyment. It also cover’s the business side of things, the success within the industry, distribution and merchandising. We also read a bit about the theater to home transformation. When movies were only visible in theaters but then transformed to DVDs which allowed us to take that story home and watch it in the comfort of our PJs; not just once but as many times as we please. This book covers these aspects but keeps returning to the big picture of Disney itself, which is why it makes for an exciting read.
Being a filmmaker, I admire the books focus on storytelling and how it’s traveled. To break down all that we’ve evolved from to a simple word; Storytelling could not sum it up any better. Storytelling is a form of communication. It’s something us filmmakers constantly analyze in our heads; who is going to enjoy our story, who is actually going to watch it, is it going to spread, how will I communicate what I’ve made with others around me? Questions on questions could grow about the word storytelling. But it’s understood by this writer; that there is great importance in telling each other what we have made, what we believe in, and who we are through story telling. As the way we tell stories improves, the beauty in how we can communicate and get our points across, becomes more clear and more valued.
Overall, I am impressed with what I read. I understood the aspects where the digital world grew and its importance but I enjoyed the writer’s perspective on storytelling and the detail within how it was done at Disney. The history and innovative moves will keep you wanted to read more. I recommend this book to anyone as a wonderful addition to their list of books to read!
