Ex-Disney animator, Tom Bancroft, has been brought on by the people behind Cuphead to work on its DLC. Bancroft was a Disney employee during the “Renaissance” of Disney films. He was animating in the mid-90s and early 2000s. His animation portfolio includes classics like The Lion King, Mulan, Tarzan, and Aladdin.
The animator broke the news on Twitter Thursday.
Proud to announce my involvement with #cuphead and @studiomdhr on the DLC (they had to explain what that was) extension- “The Delicious Last Course”. Getting out the paper and pencil and hitting this one #oldschool 2D pic.twitter.com/nNPFsJ3HUB

The Delicious Last Course DLC is set to launch later this year. It’s going to feature new bosses and a new isle. A playable character, Ms. Chalice, will also be introduced. According to StudioMDHR’s announcement last year, Ms. Chalice will mix up the normal Cuphead moveset.
What do you think? Are you excited to see someone with such a seasoned career behind this?
