Shamelessly She-Hulk, a movie I directed, is listed on She-Hulk's Wikipedia page under Film. I've pushed my luck by making some minor corrections.

AniMat has been doing a series of Youtube videos about The Thief and the Cobbler. I didn't look at the script for these until he was basically done, but we decided that I'd do an interview for him to correct a few serious misconceptions I'd noticed, or that usually come up when talking about the film. I think that mostly got cut out of his shorter version, since I recorded a whole hour of stuff.

"Now that I have officially finished Animation Lookback: The Thief and the Cobbler, how about we take the time to chat with the man who introduced the movie to a new generation with his well-known Recobbled Cut. Enjoy this special interview with Garrett Gilchrist!"

Also, if you’d like to check out the complete hour-long talk, then you can see that interview here:"

"Luckily, we live in an era where “lost” films don’t necessarily have to remain so, and so it’s been a delight today to dip into the beauty of clips from The Thief And The Cobbler that have been circulating from fans online. Many of them taken from Recobbled, animator Garrett Gilchrist’s 8-year effort to recreate Williams’ original film, which you can easily view on YouTube. Looking at the clips, it’s easy to see just why Cobbler took so much time, energy, and money to make: In an era before all but the most rudimentary computer-assisted animation, Williams and his artists created some of the most ludicrously beautiful and jaw-dropping animated vistas imaginable."

"It’s dazzling stuff, and while it’s hard not to be haunted by the specter of what might have been, we’re indebted to Gilchrist, not just for his restoration work, but for hosting all of it (along with much of Williams’ other work, as well as a documentary about him, The Thief Who Never Gave Up) on his YouTube channel."

"The Recobbled Cut is a valuable and sensitive attempt at restoration that hints at the extraordinary work that The Thief and the Cobbler could have been if Williams had been allowed to complete it ... The remarkable and singular look of the film would have adequately papered over the narrative cracks. It’s a fun adventure romp blessed with some of the most eye-wateringly beautiful animation you could ever wish to see."

(Note: Nothing from Howard Blake's short script was used, and it's weird that anyone talks about it now. Margaret French wrote the film, in roughly final form before 1980, and deserves all that credit.)

"Gilchrist’s assemblage hints at how monumental a finished Thief and the Cobbler might have been. It combines Williams’s jaw-dropping use of simulated camera movement, his love of smooth character animation, and so many other wonderful talents to create one of the great might-have-beens of film history and a tribute to an exacting and demanding animator who kept creating stunning work — all drawn by hand — right up until his twilight years."

"He was — and this is not an exaggeration — the greatest animator in the world and had been for decades. Over the course of his career, he conjured unreal visions solely with pen and paper, resisting almost all use of computers (toward the end of his life, digital entered his process for the final compositing stage, but never for the actual animation). A notoriously exacting boss at his company, Richard Williams Animation, such attention to detail produced a singular style and beauty rarely matched and even more rarely exceeded in the form."
