Beautiful Pre-Production Drawings for Disney’s ‘Cinderella’

If you’re a friend of Flavorpill, then you know how much we appreciate a clever twist on Disney films, characters, and other behind-the-scenes goodies from the animated classics. That’s why we were elated to come across these pre-production sketches of the Mickey Mouse studio’s Cinderella at website Deja View, by way of Film School Rejects. The rich, detailed drawings range from loosely composed to fully realized scenes we instantly recognized from the 1950 movie. Deja View speculates that the works were created by legendary Disney artist Ken O’Connor, who brought the fairy tale’s pumpkin-turned-magical coach to life. O’Connor contributed his talents to Disney’s biggest pictures, including Snow White, Lady and the Tramp, and Fantasia (the dancing hippos are his creation). See beautiful sketches for the timeless Disney love story in our gallery. The forethought that went into every tiny detail makes you realize how committed Disney was to shaping their magical universe.
