Ok, so Disney's not making an animated version of The Tempest, but I've always thought it'd be awesome! I decided to make the closest thing we'll probably ever get. Suspend disbelief and enjoy!
I tried to tell some of the story, and even use some clips eluding to things that happen in the story (i.e. Ariel "coming" form a tree, Alonso and Gonzalo partaking in a feast and later being put under a sleeping spell, etc.). I also tried to use somewhat similar animation (i.e. Sleeping Beauty and Pocahontas are both on the realistic side, as opposed to the cartoony Snow White or Peter Pan). My options were limited to films set in a forest. I cheated with Hunchback and the castle scenes of Sleeping Beauty. I concede that those could be in Caliban's home or part of a flashback/apparition...
My Cast of Characters: Prospero - Dalben (The Black Cauldron) Miranda - Aurora (Sleeping Beauty) Ferdinand - John Smith (Pocahontas) Ariel - Spring Sprite (Fantasia 2000, Firebird Suite) Caliban - Quasimodo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) Alonso - King Stefan (Sleeping Beauty) Antonio - Frollo (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) Gonzalo - King Hubert (Sleeping Beauty) Trinculo - Wiggins (Pocahontas) Sebastian - Ben (Pocahontas) Stephano - Lon (Pocahontas)
Song List: Fantastic Garden (Coraline) - Bruno Coulais Ship At Sea (Pocahontas) - Alan Menken Flow Like Water (The Last Airbender) - James Newton Howard AND the very last note of To the Stars (Dragonheart) - Randy Edelman (Because no trailer is complete without it!)
I also used a couple of soundbites from the Julie Taymor version of The Tempest, along with some of the Disney clips original audio.
I'd like to thank Chris, Sandra, and Kaitlyn for their artistic input (I'm not winning an Oscar here!).
