Disney’s Paperman: A Timeless Tale of Love

14 Feb


Disney never disappoints me, ever. As some of my readers know, I am a huge Disney advocate. A huge thank you to Nikki, who recently shared the link of the animated short film with me. Paperman accompanied Wreck-It-Ralph when it was out in theaters, last year. John Kahrs lends his genius ability as the director as well as the lead role of Geroge, the Paperman. The story is set in 1940s New York City, and while it might be a bit before my time, the story of love is timeless and that is what really appealed to me.

There is something so beautiful about this short film because it stands out from the various animated films and TV shows that are common today, as it incorporates both 2D and 3D animation. I was thrilled to find out that Paperman is nominated for the Best Animated Short Film for this year’s Academy Awards. I haven’t seen the other films in the category, but I would be over the moon to hear, “The Oscar goes to…Disney’s Paperman.” I think that it is so deserving. There is something both charming and alluring about the film. It reminds me that there is something magical about love.


Happy Valentine’s Day,
