Walt Disney Animation Studios is clearly hitting it out of the park right now. Big Hero 6 was a huge success, while Frozen remains the highest grossing animated film of all time. Creatively, Disney Animation is telling highly compelling stories, but they’re also investing heavily in incredible artistry and tech - seen most clearly via the creation of their own renderer Hyperion (which fxguide covered in depth previously, here). That same approach to taking advantage of both the art and the tech of animation is carried through in the studio’s latest adventure, Zootopia, directed by Byron Howard and Rich Moore, where the need for major solutions to hair and fur and also vegetation were crucial to pulling off the all-mammal world of the film.
