Disney Artists Reimagined The Seven Dwarfs And The Results Are Wonderful

I'd totally watch a movie starring the reinterpreted Happy.

Disney recently re-released its very first animated feature ever, the classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on to Blu-ray. As part the release they asked their animators to reinterpret the iconic Dwarfs, and the results are, well, fantastic.

Andy Harkness (Art Director of Environments, Moana) kept Doc looking pretty classic, updating him with a 3D makeover.

To achieve the 3D effect, Harkness sculpted Doc out of clay, photographed him and then painted him Photoshop.

Benson Shum (Animator, Zootopia, Moana, and Frozen) reinterpreted Bashful in style that is very reminiscent of iconic Disney concept artist, Mary Blair's signature style.


And finally, Trent Correy (Character Animator, Zootopia, Moana, Big Hero 6, and Frozen) reimagined Dopey as a whackier and more energetic character -- whose hand is also appears to be melting.
