It has never been a more perfect time for you to sit and enjoy the Disney+ series of shorts called Zenimation. This series focus’ on brilliant animation throughout every Disney film, as well as elements that are instrumental in storytelling. The series does not only highlight themes like ‘Water’ and ‘Cityscapes’ but also puts the hard work of animators and sound engineers into focus. It strips away the music and singing (that may take focus) and shows our favorite films in an entirely new light.
The series has come out with episodes featuring the following themes –
- Water Realms
Each episode may carry a different message and depend on the person, a different kind of tranquility. For instance, Water and Explore have a completely different pace. In a time where our world feels completely muddled and overwhelming, Zenimation gives us a chance to shut off and enjoy Disney in an entirely different light. These bite-sized shorts are under 10 minutes long and are a nice little break from everything that may be surrounding you.
If ‘being zen’ does not come naturally to you, use this series to sharpen up your Disney trivia. Scenes from different Disney movies flicker across the screen at what seems like a rapid pace. Try to name them as they flit by and compete with friends/family with who can name them first.
All-in-all, the series gives you a glimpse into the layers it takes to make a successful story pop on screen without the narrative or soundtrack in the background. Talent extends to more than the people lending their voices to the characters – but to every single element you see on screen.
If you need a moment of Zen, take a deep breath, and be sure to turn on Zenimation on Disney+. You won’t regret it!
