On Disney+ UK (and other European versions) an original series is coming called "Zenimation" on May 22, 2020. I wonder what it is and why there's no info available on this project. The only thing I was able to find out is that it's some sort of short film collection.

This is so cheap and lame. :roll: I guess "original series" is a term used loosely over at Disney+. At least, the artwork's pretty. Here's the trailer for it.

Quote:
Now more than ever, you must take time to unplug, relax and refresh your senses -- which just so happens to be the point of Disney+'s new series, Zenimation. Walt Disney Animation Studios has crafted 10 episodes of animated soundscape soothingness. "Whether it’s baby Moana being called by the ocean, Anna and Kristoff walking through an icy forest or Baymax and Hiro Hamada flying over San Fransokyo, these iconic scenes become an aural experience like no other with the sounds of ocean waves, an icy forest and soaring flight," Disney teases. You'll also find calm courtesy of The Lion King, Mulan and more. Each episode of Zenimation, which hails from creator David Bess, is five to seven minutes long, and they're all streaming on Disney+ on May 22.

These animated soundscape experiences were created and edited by David Bess, an editor at Disney Animation. The series had its origins at the 2019 D23 Expo, Disney’s largest fan event, and in its original form Zenimation were one-scene vignettes where only the sound effects could be heard.

“Why unplug from the music and dialogue? When I started looking at those scenes without the music and dialogue,” says Bess, “especially the ‘Try Everything’ train sequence in Zootopia, as incredible as that song is, when you only hear the sound effects, it’s almost startling to hear the rich layering of the sounds and think of the work that goes into that.”

Adds Bess, “We used scenes such as the moment in Big Hero 6 when Baymax and Hiro are seated atop this wind power generator, taking in the sunset. They’re not saying a word, but it’s such an important moment between the two of them. There is also the moment in Frozen where Anna and Kristoff walk through this icy forest. The characters are enjoying the view, looking around. Kristoff takes his hand and brushes the icicles and walks by. It’s beautiful.”

Disney is obviously in (desperate) need for new content.
And because it is just not possible to produce some right now, they are doing that.

...

I’m not saying he won’t be looking for it though,

So, this is basically Disney's ASMR? There is a large market for that sort of thing, so I can understand Disney wanting to pounce on this.

This seems nice. Not very creative but options are limited at the moment.
