The legendary triple Oscar-winning animator and director responsible for Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Thief and the Cobbler, and so much more has joined social media at last.

The sprightly 82-year-old Richard Williams logged onto Twitter earlier today, posting a couple of introductory tweets, including one prefacing drawings of anatomy that the artist and teacher is “restudying.” With quite a bit of precision, we might add.

Hopefully, it’s a glimpse of much more to come, as Williams is not only a fount of animation lore and technique, but he is also rolling out a brand new short film, Prologue, which he premiered last month at the Annecy animation festival. Earlier Cartoon Brew shared its own reaction about the film on Twitter:
