Future of 2D animation

This past Oscar's, Paperman won for best animated short film. Paperman was created by combining 2D classically drawn animation along with CGI 3D animation. The program used to do this is called "Meander" created by Eric Daniels. The drawings of these characters in Paperman were so amazing, they decided it was a waste to not try to animate them and combine it with the CGI. Paperman takes place in Manhattan in 1940 and is in black and white. Currently, 2D animation isn't as popular as it used to be because of the technology advances of 3D CGI. Hopefully in the future they will take this technique of combining 2D and 3D. This type of animation is very nostalgic since it reminds me of all the 50's disney movies I loved so much.
