Show Notes
In this episode, we sit down with Fiona Trigg, senior curator at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) in Melbourne to discuss their current exhibition, ‘Disney: The Magic of Animation’.

Curated from a staggering 65 million original artworks housed at the Walt Disney Animation Research Library in Los Angeles, 500 carefully selected pieces – including sketches, drawings, paintings and concept art – comprise this once-in-a-lifetime exposition, which pulls back the curtain on the magic that goes into making some of the world’s most iconic films.

These rarely seen works highlight the detailed development of Disney’s most beloved animations – from Mickey Mouse’s first talkie Steamboat Willie' (1928), through to the groundbreaking ‘Fantasia’ (1940) and the universally celebrated 'Frozen' (2013) – while highlighting the extraordinary evolution of animation techniques which the studio pioneered. The Melbourne iteration also debuts never-before-exhibited artwork from the Studio’s recent release 'Raya and the Last Dragon' (2021).

After disruptions due to the recent lockdowns in Melbourne, ‘Disney: The Magic of Animation’ has been extended until the 23rd of January 2022. For more information on the exhibition and ACMI, head to
