Disney’s Return to 2D Animation: THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG

Check this one out while it lasts kiddos, for this is truly awesome. As first mentioned on GF5 last August, Disney is returning to the realm of traditional, hand-drawn animation this December with The Princess and the Frog, and the YouTube video I’ve embedded above offers the most substantial sneak peek at the flick that I’ve yet seen. It’s written and directed by folks who were involved in The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, which gives me great hope, and it’s set in New Orleans, a city that so intoxicated me when I visited there in 2004 that I am still experiencing some sort of Creole hangover nearly five years later. So, needless to say, I’ll be taking my daughter to see this when it comes out. How about you?
