One Hundred and One Dalmatians is Disney's 17th animated feature, and as many of Disney's movies had done before, this one used new technologic applications that changed the way animated movies were done. But 101 Dalmatians wasn't only innovative for its technological advances, it was a huge change in Disney animated movies in many aspects.
Based on the novel written by Dodie Smith in 1956, the whole adaptation was done by Bill Peet, who wrote the script, did all the storyboard for the film and was even a character stylist. He envisioned the movie so well that when the story adaptation was finished Smith said that Pete's version was even better than her own book.
