Disney's Full Circle
The faithfulness of Disney to the primitive is also his faithfulness to himself, to that original and therefore unquestionable part of oneself that answers to body and to heart in one. A rediscovering of origin that, as the coming of a full circle, is mystical. It relates to Disney’s reaching an abstract dimension of matter through matter itself, that is, through the fantasy of visual expression in animation and of multi-sensory experience in Disneyland.
Faithfulness to origin involves the innocence to being carried away, an acceptance of and receptivity to pleasure. Simply put, it might concern an immense keenness of the five senses, a love of life. But its rediscovery as end or conclusion demands genius: a gargantuan humbleness for work.
