When Dali Met Disney

Destino is an animated short film released in 2003 by Walt Disney Feature Animation. What makes this short animated film noteworthy is that its production originally began in 1945, 58 years before its eventual completion in 2003. The project was originally a collaboration between Walt Disney and Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, and features music written by Mexican songwriter Armando Domínguez and performed by Mexican singer Dora Luz. It was included in the Animation Show of Shows in 2003. The film is just as wonderfully strange as you’d hope it to be.

    Interesting. I’d never heard of it. I wonder how much of the film Dali got to experience.
