So, there was a phase when there’s nothing more interesting and exciting than an animated movie. Cartoons caught the major attention in the industry whereas we saw the rise of animated movies in later ’90s. We still have fondest memories of those lazy Sundays that were spent while watching animated cartoons shows and movies.
When you dive deep into the history of animation, you’ll find that this technique is as old as storytelling. It took very little time for people to understand that illusion can also be created through still images.
