Will Hand-Drawn animated films ever make a come-back?
To preface this, I am merely a fan of animation. I do not have any drawing talents and my knowledge about the professional industry is limited. But this is something I've been thinking about for a while.
Pixar, Dreamworks, and Disney have all proven that 3D CG animated films can have extremely well told stories and amazing animation. Yet there's a part of me that always thinks that 3D is less personal than 2D; that by striving to duplicate live-action it loses some of that imagination that allows animation to be anything you can draw. It's telling that one of the most talked about and creative parts of Inside Out is the section where the animation purposefully becomes abstract and looks more hand-drawn. I'm a big anime fan in part because Japan is one of the last strongholds for commercial traditional animation left.
I'm not saying that 2D needs to take over 3D in US animation. There are absolutely things that only 3D animation can accomplish and I don't want that to go away. But I definitely don't want to see 2D animation stagnate in the US like it is now and I don't understand why the major studios aren't pursuing traditional animation as a method to make their movies stand out from the crowd.Akinator
