A new Disney art gallery celebrates the work of directors Ron Clements and John Musker
With Walt Disney Animation Studios gearing up to release their latest animated adventure, Gallery Nucleus has shared more than 35 pieces from their upcoming show that celebrates the long Disney history of Moana directors Ron Clements and John Musker. In the viewer below, you can take a look at pieces inspired by films like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog and many more of Ron and John’s Disney classics.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes Moana, a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the once-mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity.
Jemaine Clement also voices Tamatoa, Rachel House lends her voice to Gramma Tala, Temuera Morrison voices Moana’s father, Chief Tui, Nicole Scherzinger is Moana’s mother, Sina, and Alan Tudyk is behind the voice of Heihei. Moana also boasts original music by Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda alongside Opetaia Foa’i, and Mark Mancina.
Set to feature more than 100 Disney art original pieces, Gallery Nucleus’ An Art Tribute to the Disney Films of Ron Clements and John Musker will open on November 19, 2016 at the gallery in Alhambra, CA. Artwork, which is set to include originals, limited-edition serigraphs, and limited-edition gicleés from over 60 artists, will be on display until December 6, 2016. You can explore some more of the designs over at io9.
