These 12 basic principles of animation were developed by Walt Disney Studios during the 1930s. These ideas were at the forefront of exciting discoveries that were contributing to the development of a new art form. These principles came as a result of reflection about the practice of animation and through Disney’s desire to use animation to express character and personality.
