Above is a quick commercial for Tokyo Disney Resort. It doesn't look very Disney! There's a reason for that: Disney roped in Japanese anime studio Madhouse to create this spot.


Madhouse is known for Ninja Scroll and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust.

It's interest to see Disney greenlight something that diverges stylistically from its own animation style. But perhaps that was the point? It would not be a first, though, as Madhouse also handled the animation duties for Stitch!, the anime version of Lilo & Stitch.
