1961 – 101 Dalmatians premiered from Walt Disney Productions
One Hundred and One Dalmatians is a 1961 American animated adventure comedy film produced by Walt Disney Productions and based on the 1956 novel The Hundred and One Dalmatians by Dodie Smith.
The film was originally released in theatres on January 25, 1961, and was a box office success, pulling the studio out of the financial slump caused by Sleeping Beauty, a costlier production released two years prior.
Aside from its box office revenue, its commercial success was due to the employment of inexpensive animation techniques—such as using xerography during the process of inking and painting traditional animation cels—that kept production costs down.
Extra Note: Disney has announced that another live-action film is in development, but it will focus on the origin of Cruella de Vil, it was announced that the film would be releasd May 28, 2021.
