Hand drawn toons will always be my favorite form of animation but the new breed of computer generated animation have superceded the Disney era. Monsters, Inc. and Shrek were probably the fore runners in this new medium but this too will be short lived as a newer breed of movie making take over. I call this the Complete Computer Generated Movie or CCGM for short. We got a glimpse of this medium in Square-Eunix's Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. The most distinguishable thing about this movie was that everthing was done on the computer, up to and including the voices. Before, the movie houses would use human voices for their characters but Square took this one step further and eliminated people from game altogether. Hollywood should be scared. The movie is actually very well done and deserved a collection spot on the DVD rack.
