Metro Hotel Perth - Swan Room, Black
In 2004 Walt Disney Animation was in ruins: its films were losing the studio money, competitors had sprung up and overtaken them at the box office and with the critics, and a string of failed projects left many questioning whether there was a future for Disney animation at all.

A decade later Frozen was the highest-grossing animated feature film of all time, having grossed more than $1.2 billion worldwide. In the fifth and final part of his long-form presentation, Grant Watson tracks the return of Disney – both commercially and creatively – from the mid-2000s doldruns through one of the most impressive strings of films the studio ever created, including The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Frozen, Zootopia and Wreck-It Ralph.
