On October 28, 2014, Disney Editions will release Disney During World War II: How the Walt Disney Studio Contributed to Victory in the War by John Baxter, only the second book of its kind to have ever been published on the subject. The publisher’s description is as follows:
On October 7, 2014, Disney Editions will release Marc Davis: Walt Disney’s Renaissance Man, a 208 page hardcover volume that details the contributions of one of The Walt Disney Company’s most influential artists as written by some of the company’s most influential artists. The publisher’s description is as follows:
Walt Disney once said of Marc Davis, ‘Marc can do story, he can do character, he can animate, he can design shows for me. All I have to do is tell him what I want and it’s there! He’s my Renaissance man.’ As such, Davis touched nearly every aspect of The Walt Disney Company during his tenure. He began as an animator, whose supporting work on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi inspired Walt to promote him to full animator.
Disney XD and Lucasfilm today introduced a new character from the ‘Star Wars Rebels’ series, Hera, the heart of the Ghost crew from Star Wars Rebels. The Twi’lek, voiced by Vanessa Marshall, is an ace pilot, able fighter and is revealed to fans in the behind-the-scenes video featuring creator interviews, character sketches, and animation previews, embedded below.
Hera is an especially gifted pilot. ‘I think she really makes flying the Ghost look easy,’ says Joel Aron, CG supervisor. And while she’s strong-willed, Hera also keeps the group together and can be warm and nurturing. ‘She knows how to talk to them to get the best out of themselves and to be part of that team,’ Aron says. ‘That to me is the commander of a ship.’
