Destino

The Disney Vault has cracked and out of the fissure has slithered the liquid remnants of Dalvador Dali's melted clocks, mixed with the same ink that painted Mickey Mouse black.

Back in 1943, Walt and Dali began a collaborative animated short. It was to be a surreal love story of Chronos, the embodiment of time, and his ill-fated affair with a mortal woman. It was originally considered for Walt's vision of a constantly evolving version of Fantasia in which new segments would periodically rotate in and out with old favorites, like a symphony altering it's program. The project was abandoned but it's memory persisted, and the unfinished remnants were picked up again by Walt's nephew Roy to be finished in 2003.
