Hightail it to your home theater for a fun and exciting movie-watching experience your family will enjoy again and again!|Disney presents an animated version of the the Oliver Twist story with a twist -â the setting is New York, Oliver is a kitten, and Fagin is the human master of a pack of pickpocket dogs.|Six supervising animators and a team of more than 300 artists and technicians worked for more than two and a half years to create this hand-drawn feature film. More than a million story sketches and drawings were required to produce the 119,275 hand-painted cels that comprise the finished film.|Designers went to New York and photographed street scenes from a dog’s perspective â- 18 inches off the ground -â getting stares from passersby but providing excellent reference material for the layout artists.
To give the backgrounds a contemporary and hard-edged look, animators used Xerox overlays for the first time since 101 DALMATIANS.|Many of the inanimate objects in the film were created and animated on the computer â- cars, cabs, buses, Sykes’ limousine, Fagin’s trike (part scooter and part shopping cart), a cement mixer, a sewer pipe, a spiral staircase, a piano, subway tunnels and trains, cityscapes, and even the Brooklyn Bridge. This was the first film to have its own department set up expressly for the purpose of generating computer animation.
