“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”
"The hot man meeting" is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
man would i love to be a pixar animator
"People say my powers are cursed. People say they detest my powers. But I’ve come to realize that my powers aren’t meant to hurt others. They’re meant to save people! I’m glad I’ve lived this long. I’m so happy I’m not dead! I’m truly glad that I came to this town and met you, Senpai. I was much, much happier than I ever realized! I was never cursed. Senpai, you can die like a normal person now. So from now on, please lead a normal life. Live, just like you told me back that one time. Senpai, I don’t feel unpleasant.”
