While out in LA for the #ChristopherRobinEvent, we visited Walt Disney Animation Studios for a #RalphBreaksTheInternetEvent Press Day.
Can you say Oh MY AWESOME?
OH MY EXCITING!
Imagine a whole part of the Internet devoted to all things Disney come to life and you can envision the world of OH MY DISNEY DOT COM.
Everything Oh MY DISNEY DOT COM brought excitement and laughter while we met these three amazing women who shared all about how the princess scene came to life.

This idea for the princesses was so out there that she was nervous to see how it would be received. Lucky for her, Director Rich Moore told her, “Just try it and see what happens”
Ami Thompson, Art Director, shared how this is the most unique project she has worked on. Each princess wears a t-shirt that makes reference to her own film. While listening to Ami, I thought it was wonderful to see her thoughts come to life and amazing it must have been as her first time being art director for a film.

Ribon shared that they wanted to pay homage to original film. They looked to find iconic moments and tributes to the films that we have loved for many years.
