  • 3. The Differences between Madagascar and Epic Animated movies are absolutely everywhere. Approximately everything in the media is animated especially educational television programs and movie backgrounds. When I hear the word animation, the first thing to come to my mind is some kind of cartoon. Did you like to watch cartoons during your childhood? The answer is usually yes, especially for me. When I was a child, under the age of seven, I mostly enjoyed spending all of my hours watching cartoons and I still remember all the imperative slogans, such as ' I am the king of Madagascar, Alex the Lion.’ All of these slogans result from those cartoons and I actually take cartoons as my role models and reflect the characters in my daily life. For example, I used to believe everything in cartoons, and now, I feel like I have a good imagination and am able to apply my creativity in my studies. However, of all animated films, I like Madagascar and Epic the most as both of these films were produced by Disney. On the other hand, both of these movies have different histories, narration of plots, characters and use different types of technology to produce excellent films. First of all, I will discuss the major difference of history between Madagascar and Epic. Madagascar is a computer animated comedy film released in year 2005 and this movie was the first film in the series. However, Epic is the latest movie produced in the year 2013 by Blue Sky studio and basically this film is based on William Joyce's 1996 book which was directed by Chris Wedge. Chris Wedge fell into the common animator's entrap of making the "human" characters a lot duller than the nonhuman creepy-crawlies. On the other hand, Madagascar was directed by Eric Damell from DreamWorks Animation who produced the fantastic animation technique which is fun and eyes catching. However, Madagascar is the winner of Academy Award-winning Shrek in 2006 which were proved the strength of the comedic actor who voice the key animal character.
  • 4. Secondly, another difference between Madagascar and Epic is the narration of the plot. Basically, Madagascar is about the zoo animals leaving the comforts of man-made habitats for an interesting adventure to the wild in this animated family film. In the movie, after escaping from the zoo, four friends which are a lion, a hippo, a zebra and a giraffe are sent back to Africa. When their ship capsizes, stranding them on Madagascar which is an island populated by crazy critters, the pals must adapt to jungle life and their new roles as wild animals. On the other hand, the film Epic is about a wondrous landscape and features a world jam-packed with epic stories and battles. The plot of this film is the relationships between a rebellious teenage girl and her father, whom have grown apart since the death of the girl’s mother. Alongside that, a continuous battle rages deep in the forest between the forces of good and evil. Later in the movie, the teenage girl finds herself magically transported into that secret universe and in order to save the world she bands together with a rag-tag team of unlikely heroes. The third major difference between the film Madagascar and Epic are the interesting characters. In Madagascar, the main character is a lion, named Alex. He is an African lion and the hero of the film. In the movie, Alex is a protective self-proclaimed leader within his group of friends and he is also smart, quick thinking and fast on his feet. Alex is used to a life of comfort in the zoo, but later learns to settle into the wild. In contrast, the main character in Epic is the teenager Mary "MK" Katherine; she is a headstrong spirited teenager who has a strained relationship with her father. However, she is an intelligent and brave character and is seen to help in protecting the forest against the evil Boggans. Along her dangerous journey, she shows great courage in protecting the flower pod bestowed upon her by Queen Tara. Other than the difference of character, the fourth major difference between Madagascar and Epic is the technology used to produce the films. In the world of business, animation has become more and more prominent in movie theatres today. However, during
  • 5. the time of production of the film Madagascar, there was the tough process of hand-drawn animation and that actually required "artists" working on the animation part. However, although it's only a 2D action movie, I felt it is an animated masterpiece that is able show fun and enjoyable comedies for all. In contrast, Epic is a 3D adventure- fantasy animated film produced using the latest technology through beautiful production design, visual artistry, and crafted with just enough flair to make for pleasantly engaging viewing. In a nutshell, the differences between Madagascar and Epic were successfully demonstrated through the differences in history, narration of plot, interesting characters and the different types of technology used to produce excellent films. However, both of the films were an evolution that included the fun character comedy and depth of emotion. Animation film has a huge impact on our life. Without it, much of the technology we use today would not even have the ability to function. In my opinion, the future is a bright one for animation and those who choose to become a part of it are in for one interesting story. The future of animation is unpredictable, as every future is.
