Disney is perhaps taking a cue from popular instructional streaming services like Masterclass with their new show, Sketchbook. The new Disney+ series will teach viewers how to draw some of their iconic characters. 

Each episode of “Sketchbook” will feature an experienced Disney artist instructing how to draw a single character from a Walt Disney Animation Studios film. The instruction will be mixed with personal interviews with the artists who discuss their career and artistic process. 

The series is a collaboration between Disney and Supper Club, the studio behind Netflix’s Chef’s Table. Other projects Supper Club has created for Disney+ include Marvel’s 616, A Spark Story, and the upcoming Olivia Rodrigo documentary, Olivia Rodrigo: driving home 2 u (a SOUR film)

Here is the lineup of artists and animators you can expect in Sketchbook six episodes, which debut on April 27th:

  • Gabby Capili teaches how to draw Kuzco from The Emperor’s New Groove
  • Hyun Min Lee teaches how to draw Olaf from Frozen
  • Eric Goldberg teaches how to draw The Genie from Aladdin
  • Jin Kim teaches how to draw Captain Hook from Peter Pan
  • Samantha Vilfort teaches how to draw Mirabel Madrigal from Encanto
  • Mark Tenn teaches how to draw Simba from The Lion King
