Luca’s Storyboard Comparison, Reconnecting with TRON and more – / Film

(The morning watch is a recurring feature that highlights a handful of notable videos from the web. It could be video essays, fan-made productions, feature films, shorts, hilarious skits, or anything about our favorite movies and TV shows.)

In this edition, learn how the storyboards created during the development of the Pixar film Luca compare to the final cut of the film released last month. Plus, revisit the innovative sci-fi classic TRON and discover anecdotes you didn’t know about the movie. And finally, go behind the scenes of the coco update being added to Mickey’s Philharmonic theme park attraction.

First, Pixar shows how storyboards for Luca depicting Luca and Alberto’s dinner with Giulia and her intimidating father compares to the film’s final animated scene. This is one of those cases where the storyboards very closely mirror the final scene. Sometimes there are a variety of noticeable differences, but here the only “major” change is the type of pasta served for dinner.

Next up, the latest edition of Disney + ‘s Deets takes a look at the innovative sci-fi classic TRON, which was way ahead of its time, although the imagery looks rather hokey by today’s VFX standards. Find out why the headset Jeff Bridges had to wear in the computer network was such a burden, what kind of computing power the post-production team was working with, and more.

Finally, in case you haven’t heard, the Mickey’s PhilharMagic attraction at Disneyland Resort and Disneyland Paris will receive additional musical number inspired by the Pixar film coco. The song “Un Poco Loco” is added to the show, along with a new sheet music provided by coco composer Germain Franco who will be unique to the attraction. See how it all turned out in this Disney Parks video.
