Glen Keane always talks about animating with sincerity. When animating a character you need to understand him/her fully, predict their reactions, their feelings and foresee the way they will move, staying true to themselves.
Marahute moves like a magnificent eagle, and not like a human, but Glen gave her a relatable characteristic. He allowed us to be able to read as clearly as if she were speaking, what she’s saying or thinking.
I love these suble little movements that made her majestic, comedic and real!
