Mort: art for Disney’s abandoned Terry Pratchett film surfac

Article
At the end the articles states "Sadly, the chances of Mort coming back to life as a project at Disney seem very slim indeed."
I disagree after seeing the rather twee images. Mort in the style of Frozen would have been a travesty.

I think most of the images on that page were not to do with Mort. I quite liked the ones that were - very Ronald Searle, i thought.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"

I realised that. Hovering over the images gave a clue.

Hovering doesn't achieve anything here - but then the University has given my the equivalent of a networked abacus. I still like them as stills but I don't know they'd animate well,
