Dreamworks does certain things better than Disney
Blue Sky does certain things better than Disney
Laika does certain things better than Disney
Disney is no longer the singular outlet for quality American animated films anymore
Get over it and get used to it
Everyone else is like, “Sanic was in Steven Universe!” Yeah, that’s cool, but honestly…

James Baxter — Moses from Prince of Egypt [x]
THE ANIMATION IN THIS MOVIE IS SO PERF UGH
What you mean to say is that James Baxter is perfect <3 The man is an animation god/legend. FOR OBVIOUS REASONS. In fact, the man is especially renown for his work on “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”
That’s why in an episode of Adventure Time, there is an incredibly well animated horse who rolls around on his ball and says his name “Jaaaaaaaaames Baxter!” and brings cheer to everyone around him. Finn and Jake become jealous of his ability to make people smile and try to mimic him, find their own way of spreading joy and then finally accept that sometimes you can’t be as good as some other people at some things. It was a commentary by Pendleton Ward about how he always wanted to be a legend just like James, but in the end you have to do you own thing and achieve greatness in your own way.
James Baxter voiced the horse himself, too.
No wonder that horse was so well animated
who doesn’t love James Baxter
one of my biggest dreams ive ever had is to create a culture of respect for animation here in the states- not just artsy shorts, which are cool, not family-friendly (entertains mom and dad too!) films, but ALL animation. i want to make big budget animated films that are pg-13 and R. i want to break down those ideas and change the way animated features are viewed, fuck with expectations.
all these people sniffing at animation like it’s simply childish and below them are gonna be sore ass losers someday because i’ve got a giant, untouched market waiting for me in the future.
