Destino: A Dali X Disney Collaboration

2013-01-30 1

Salvador Dali, a man well-known for his striking and surreal works of art. Walt Disney, a visionary and dreamer in the world of animation. As such, the pair probably belongs to the list of unexpected collaborators. But as fate would have it, they did, in 1945.

The original production for the animated short film, entitled Destino, began in 1945, and featured the music of Mexican songwriter Armando Dominguez and the performance of Dora Luz.

Unfortunately, roughly a year after Salvador Dali and Disney studio artist John Hench started on doing the storyboards, production has to stop due to the financial pinch that the studio was in during the World War II ear. It was shelved and forgotten until 1999, when Walt Disney’s nephew Roy E. Disney stumbled upon the project while working on Fantasia 2000.

Destino premiered on June 2, 2003 at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France, to critical reception.
