The Princess and the Cobbler: Fred Calvert's work in progress (1992)
When Richard Williams was fired from his film The Thief and the Cobbler (after 26 years of work), Fred Calvert was hired to finish it quickly and cheaply. He did an incredibly poor job. His version was called The Princess and the Cobbler.
This is a "work in progress" version of Fred Calvert's idea for the film, before he had done any animation of his own. It's his own bizarre recut of Richard Williams' workprint, turning a masterpiece into something pretty lame and weird. It's sort of amusing to watch, but definitely bizarre.
Unusually, this edit contains a few snippets of finished Williams footage that don't appear in Williams' workprint. These clips, for the most part, ended up in the fan-restored version of The Thief and the Cobbler, the Recobbled Cut.
Recommended only for those who have seen Williams' original version of The Thief and the Cobbler, and Calvert's ruined edit of it.
About The Thief and the Cobbler:
The film was worked on for 26 years, with a team of master animators like Ken Harris and Art Babbit. This film inspired Disney's Aladdin. Ruined versions of it were released as Arabian Knight and The Princess and the Cobbler.
A fanmade restoration, the "Recobbled Cut", is now circulating. You can watch it on Youtube.
