A Little Mermaid and Aladdin Animator Made a Beautiful, Hand-Drawn, 3-Minute Love Story

From the man who brought you Ariel and Prince Eric

Those of you who are hankering for a good, old-fashioned, hand-drawn love story are in luck. Animator Glen Keane created a beautiful 3-minute short called Duet that shows the development of a romance between two people — from cell to adult form.

Even if you don’t know Glen Keane’s name, you know his creations. The famous animator worked on classics including The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. The hand-drawn animation advocate premiered his latest love duo at Google’s I/O event to show the harmonious future of animation on mobile devices.

An interactive version of the love story will be available on Android devices later this year.
