by | February 5, 2009 | Comments

Bolt, the story of a canine TV star who finds himself on a cross-country journey when he gets separated from his owner, arrives in UK cinemas this week after a Certified Fresh opening in the US. We’re celebrating its release with a trio of exclusive Behind-the-Scenes videos featuring our interviews with Bolt’s executive producer John Lasseter, directors Chris Williams and Byron Howard, producer Clark Spencer and supervising animator Clay Kaytis as well as voice talent John Travolta, Miley Cyrus, Susie Essman and Mark Walton. With Lasseter now at the helm of Walt Disney Animation Studios as Chief Creative Officer, we explore whether the company that brought us Bambi, Snow White and Aladdin are now in a position to get back to the business of crafting classics.

In our first featurette, Bolt‘s creative team discuss the film’s design and the approach they took in crafting the film’s visual style and rich characters. Join us again tomorrow as we explore the story of Bolt.
