i think the disney company somehow forgot that you can make a character attractive AND expressiveIN 2D ANIMATION, YES. CGI IS MUCH DIFFERENT AND MUCH HARDER TO FORM DIFFERENT EXPRESSIONS AND FACES OH MY GOD
Please, don’t undermine the skills of modelers, riggers, and animators.
And two fun facts:
•The Incredibles was the first PIXAR film to feature humans to the scale that they did and I think they pulled off expressions on ALL their characters pretty damn well.
•Jessica Rabbit was hand inked, hand painted, and hand airbrushed on celluloid and manually composited into each scene, but they didn’t sacrifice how expressive she was just because animation is hard.
In which Meg grinds people’s ignorance into dust under her shoe and it’s beautiful.
Any good facial rig ought to be able to produce a wide range of emotional expression, as demonstrated by the examples above. Anyone who tries to claim that it’s harder to emote in CGI than in 2D either has a bad rig or isn’t trying.
Granted, you do have a bit more difficult of a time keeping expressions out of the uncanny valley in 3D, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossibly hard to produce good expressions.
Unfinished “Prince Ali” remix, 2008.
Me and my friends had plans to organize a flash mob of people dressed like Aladdin, holding loaves of bread and dancing to remixed Aladdin songs. (basically a real life version of our Second Life griefing)
This never gelled.

ATTACK ON HUNTERS
THEY ARE THE HUNTERS AND WE ARE THE HUNTERS
ITS KIND OF A WEIRD SORT OF MUTUAL HUNTING
Someone quick, shop some maneuver gear on them
Because I can’t get the song out of my head.
Even the most powerful people have downfalls where they don’t see a way out. Princes and Princesses, Heroes and Heroines, and people just like you and me… we all just have those points where you just want to fall down on your knees and cry because you don’t know what else to do. But look up there. Look at all of them. Cinderella goes from prisoner to princess. Jasmine changes her entire country’s law. Belle transformed someone’s entire being through courage. Hercules became a god. Simba became a King. Rapunzel fulfilled her dream. Tiana did what others said she couldn’t do. Ariel found true love. and Wendy.. even though she grew up, she did what she had to do and kept Peter alive for her children and for generations to come. All of those people up there did something incredible. They rose from their ashes and so will you. All you have to do is believe.
