Imagining an Animated Wicked

Disney animator Heidi Jo Gilbert did what any fan of the book/musical Wicked would do. She composed a bunch of storyboards for a hypothetical animated adaptation of the Broadway show in the hopes of convincing those that should not need convincing to make this a reality. Oh yeah, she did this in her spare time too.  Fucking overachievers.

The upshot of a Disney animated Wicked, would be well, everything. Plus you could cast the original cast members as the voice talent, so double plus good bonus for Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth.  My caveat would be that it could not be computer animated, this would have to be a traditional 2D Disney film.

If you can’t watch it embedded above, be sure to swing by YouTube. It’s that good. [via dailywhat]
