A Decade of Destino

It’s been 10 years since the Disney-animated short Destino was released. Known for being the longest-in-production, Destino began in 1945 as a collaboration between John Hench and Salvador Dali. As reported on Cartoon Brew, “the film was abandoned after about eight months of work, with only seventeen seconds to show for it. Long considered legendary, the film was unearthed by Roy E. Disney in 1999, and completed in 2003.”

The short mixes both the classic score by Disney and Dali’s surrealist visuals, the storyline is equally as intriguing as the rest of the animation, putting together a  beautifully sweet short which becomes timeless.
