Exploring hidden art 

In this episode, we mentioned a series of books by Didier Ghez called They Drew As They Pleased… The 6 volume series ranges from what is considered Disney’s Golden Era of animation through the “new” Golden Era featuring films like Frozen. Below are links to the books on Amazon if you’re interested in purchasing them for yourself but please keep in mind that these are affiliate links.

Art of the ride

In 2019 YouTuber James St. Onge created a video titled How Disney’s Tower of Terror Works. Imagine his surprise when drawings very similar to ones he created for his video outlining the function of the attraction appeared on the Disney+ series Behind the Attraction. We’ve included the tweet that highlights what happened below. 

Since recording this episode, conversations have been held between St. Onge and Brian Volk-Weiss, the director of Behind the Attraction and CEO of The Nacelle Company. Volk-Weiss explained how and why this happened, took full responsibility and St. Onge’s name will be added to the credits of the Behind the Attraction episode. We have also included this Twitter thread below.

The episode of how the attraction works on the YouTube channel Art of Engineering is great! if you haven’t had the opportunity to watch it, we have included it below.

Until next time! °o°
