Destino

A project by Walt Disney & Salvador Dalí

Salvador Dalí and Walt Disney together for a project originally began in 1945, but that will come into being till 58 years later. Storyboarded by Disney studio artist John Hench and Dalí for eight months in late 1945 and 1946, production ceased not long after. In 1999, Walt Disney’s nephew Roy E. Disney, while working on Fantasia 2000, finally unearthed the dormant project and decided to bring it back to life.

The seven-minute short follows the story of Chronos and his ill-fated love for a mortal woman named Dahlia. The story continues as Dahlia dances through surreal scenery inspired by Dalí’s paintings. There is no dialogue, but the soundtrack includes music by the Mexican composer Armando Dominguez, performed by singer Dora Luz. The 17-second original footage that is included in the finished product is the segment with the two tortoises — this original footage is referred to in Bette Midler’s host sequence for The Steadfast Tin Soldier in Fantasia 2000, as an “idea that featured baseball as a metaphor for life”. Directed by Dominique Monféry, the short was included in the Animation Show of Shows in 2003.
