A Goofy Movie

 

The Film

This will be the film's first ever showing in HD nationwide!

It's the last day of school, and Max wants to catch the eye of Roxanne, one of the more attractive girls in school. But how can you be cool when your dad's Goofy? Stage an impromptu concert at the final assembly, that's how! Or at least it sounded good until Principal Mazer found out. Goofy finds out about his son's antics (sort of), and decides a fishing trip, like his dad took him on, is the solution. Of course, he doesn't know that Max finally lands a date with Roxanne for a party thrown by the class valedictorian. Through the movie, Goofy tries to bring Max out of his shell, while Max resents being taken away, and lying to Roxanne about the trip (he tells her he & his dad will be appearing on TV at the PowerLine concert in LA).

Run time: 78 mins

The Artist

Kevin Lima was born and raised in Pawtucket, Rhode Island and has been drawing as long as he can remember. He traces his fascination with animation back his fifth birthday when he received the book, Preston Blair’s Animation.

He took his first animation job designing characters and animating in Taiwan on the independently produced feature, The Brave Little Toaster. In 1987 he joined Walt Disney Animation and animated the character of ‘Fagin’ for Oliver & Company. Lima worked in many capacities on each of Disney Animation’s next five features. Concurrently during this period, Lima continued to pursue his passion for live theater; directing a community theater production of Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods.  

In 1992, itching to direct, Lima helmed Disney’s A Goofy Movie. Lima’s unexpectedly sensitive handling of material about the ‘Goofy’ character and his son gave the film a surprisingly real, everyday quality that moviegoers of all ages related to. He followed this by directing the hugely successful and critically acclaimed Tarzan

His second live-action endeavor, 
Enchanted, represented a culmination of Lima’s eclectic artistic experiences by being a fairy tale for all ages, which contains a mixture of traditionally hand-drawn animation, computer generated characters, romantic comedy, music, song and action adventure. 

Currently, Kevin and his wife, Brenda Chapman, the Academy Award-winning director of The Prince of Egypt and Brave, are pursuing collaboration opportunities. Their goal is to create family entertainment in all formats – animated, live-action, hybrid and television.
