This paper examines the significant meaning of the master techniques that have been used in the Neo-Disney phase by Disney and its partners. The paper first introduces some of the main highlights of this technical development and its implementation as a key feature of mainstream filmmaking in the 21st century. Hyper-reality, stylize digital imagery and animation is a breakthrough CGI technique becoming the “must see” in animation films like Finding Nemo, Monsters and The Incredibles. Pixar's “hyper-reality” (Cutmall, 2000) as a stylized realism with a lifelike feel without actually being self-regulated has launched Neo-Disney's animation films into a whole new level. The purpose of this paper is to discuss the characteristics of Neo-Disney's technical developments including the influence through which technical developments have acquired meaning and success, and Neo-Disney has used Pixar's unique hyper-realist style through its technical developments. Finally, this paper draws a conclusion about what the technical developments in Neo-Disney's feature computer animation means to animation movie making.
