In a recent column, Film School Rejects laments in “How ‘The Story of Princess Kaguya‘ Makes Pixar Look Bad” about the lack in variety in 2013’s potential nominees for the Best Animated Feature category at the Oscars. All of the US films are computer animated and the editorial believes that Pixar’s Monsters University and Disney’s Frozen are the strongest of the bunch. Frozen was intended to be traditional animation, but the writer claims that Tangled’s success changed its style. Despite the differences in story, the editorial points out these two movies retain a “cartoonish” look. The editorial also notes that Studio Ghibli’s The Story of Princess Kaguya, for better or for worse, will probably be outshone by the release of The Wind Rises, simply because it’s Hayao Miyazaki’s last film.
