The Guardian is a swell newspaper, but it's sometime ... ah ... sloppy.
In Thursday's paper it said:
Jack Black is to star in a new big-screen version of the classic Jonathan Swift satire, "Gulliver's Travels" ...
The most famous film versions are probably the eponymous 1939 Disney cartoon, which used rotoscope animation, 1960's "The Three Worlds of Gulliver", which was directed by Jack Sher and featured the stop-motion animation of Ray Harryhausen, and 1977's "Gulliver's Travels", starring Richard Harris as the traveller.
Actually no. The '39 Gulliver's Travels was made by the Fleischer brothers at their new Florida studio, in Miami.
The Guardian is right about the liberal use of roto, but way wrong about Walt making it (Disney dissed the picture, allegedly saying "Our second tier animators could have done a better job," or words to that effect.)
Actually, the Fleischers' Gulliver had a lot of charms, and ended up being the second animated sound feature released, in December 1939. Pinocchio followed in early 1940.
