The Swan Princess 2021 Calendar is now available.
We used the high-definition scans of the actual art cels and backgrounds, used in the production of the film, making this 2021 calendar a vibrant collector's piece.
For those that don't know, The Swan Princess was the last fully hand-drawn film to be released in theaters in the 1990's making the production art a special piece of history.
A production art cel is a transparent sheet of cellulose acetate that includes a hand-painted image and was used in the making of an animated film. Read more about art cels here
Q: What was the design inspiration for Odette and Odile's dress?
A: Answered by The Swan Princess Character Designer and Animation Director, Steve Gordan.
“My inspiration for all the costuming for SP was based on Edith Head's work for Hollywood-style medieval type films. Like The Court Jester. If I recall right I initially designed her original dress to be more off-the-shoulder than what it turned out to be and I believe Rick pulled me back some, but when it came time for Odile's dress it seemed more appropriate to go a little more daring.
Edith Head was an Oscar winning costume designer in Hollywood in the 1940's - 1970's This is the era referred to as the "Silver Screen Age" or "Old Hollywood Glamour".
She designed the iconic little black dress for Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. She designed for almost all of Alfred Hitchcock's classic films and designed for stars like Grace Kelly and Marilyn Monroe. One of her largest undertakings was all of the costume design for the 1956 film The Ten Commandments.
Worn by Angela Lansbury in The Court Jester Worn by Maureen O'Sullivan in The Big Clock.
