Burke Analysis
In this article, Andreas Deja is being interviewed about his how Disney animation has changed from the “Renaissance” era (the 1990s) to now. He explained the process of designing various heroes and villains for various Disney movies.
Casuistic Stretching- This is basically keeping old principles while adding new ones. Deja and other numerous Disney animators execute their animation mostly how Walt use to animate, but they have also created new ways to animate. Ways that make animation easier, while still staying true to the heart of Disney
This article was very extensive in the fact that it explained the journey of the conception and production of ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It explained how Walt Disney got his inspiration from childhood and how it carried over into his adulthood, only to create some of the most beloved characters of all time.
Comic Correctives- With this term, the person should become an observer of themselves, while acting. This matches this scenario because Disney observed himself and what was around him in order in order to create the cartoons he made. He had to employ acting in order to effectively convey the personalities of his different Disney characters


  1. These seem like two good pieces of rhetoric. They both talk about the change that you'll be discussing and one of them is even from one of the "changers" (the animator in the first one). To further your argument I think you should try to find some pieces or at least a piece of rhetoric that is from the perspective of people who consume disney productions. In doing so that would be giving us a broader perspective.

  2. I like your analysis but you can try to find a little more difference of what the changes on both of these analysis mean in your topic.
