Sometime later this month Disney Animation Studios will be premiering a new virtual reality short film entitled A Kite’s Tale. The VR short will debut at this month’s SIGGRAPH 2019 conference being held in Los Angeles and runs from July 28th – August 1st, 2019.
The conference offers a showcase for designers and companies to show developments within the gaming and emerging technology sectors and personally I can’t wait to see what else is unveiled.
A Kite’s Tale “combines classic hand-drawn animation and the latest innovations in virtual reality to tell this whimsical tale of two kites; a playful puppy (with a wagging tail) and a pompous dragon who clash, tangle, and ultimately must learn to live with one another subject to the winds of fate” explains Disney. The short film has been directed by Bruce Wright who has been with Disney for over 20 years and has worked on Tangled, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and Frozen 2 to name just a few.
