Princess & Frog teaser

07.30.2008by:

THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG is notable for two reasons: 1. It's the first black princess in the history of Disney, and 2. It's a hand-drawn animated film, the first from Disney in over four years. Even better is that Ron Clements and John Musker, they of ALADDIN and THE LITTLE MERMAID (two of my favorite Disney films), are directing with Alan Menken writing the songs. The film doesn't come out for about a year and a half, but a teaser is already online. Certainly has a beautiful look and animation purists are gonna flip for it. Take a look below...

Extra Tidbit: After some early controversy, the film was retitled and the lead character was renamed from Maddy to Tiana.

Rapunzel

Well, good news X-Kids. They are doing 'Rapunzel', saw the first footage from it and the animation looks wonderfull. It's something new also, looking like a moving painting.

THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG

Trully, Trully brilliant! once again, I love Disney films, I think hand drawn animation films are a rarity now but Disney always has surprises up their sleeves and this was one of them, I didn't know this film was in development untill know and of course I'll be looking foward to it.

Disney needs more films like these, the only reason I was drawn to Enchanted was because of the Animation piece in the beggining of the film, I hope Disney does Rapunzel and whatever other fairy tale story there

I think it looks good, all of it. I don't see anything wrong with the firefly at the end. They're in new orleans right? Is he supposed to be german? Anyway finally hand drawn animation. I like Pixars films, but i prefer hand drawn.

Stereotypical firefly ?

Why is everyoby wining about that!? Aren't you guys taking it too serious!? Even in the very best Disney Classics we get those characters. Even in the best of the best that Pixar brought us. That rusty one in Cars, anyone?

Or is it simply the fact that it's a sensetive spot? Nothing wrong with that character so far. (imo)

Looks good to me

I am excited about the return of some classic animation. Story sounds interesting enough.

As for the firefly at the end, to be fair, white people in the N.O. sound like that too.

WTF?

OK, the fact that the princes is african american is groundbreaking for a Disney animated film. But, WTF is up with the stereotypical firefly at the end. Who's lame brain idea was that?
Smells a bit racist to me!!!

Looks good but that firefly at the end has me worried. If they even include one stereotype, people are going to raise a shitstorm.

But with that said, this might just end up becoming the 1st good animated purely disney film they've made in a LONG time (Not counting every Pixar film)

Thank God for Lasseter. Disney was being run into the ground but Lasseter may just bring them back up right with his decisions (No more shitty DVD sequels, bringing back handrawn movies)

this looked good for a second, despite the old WB frog making a return appearance... but what the hell is up with that crackhead firefly at the end?

Don't Uncle Remus us, Disney.

The jury is still out on this one....

Disney IS back!

Things were getting better and better since John Lassetter was the big boss and Disney is totaly back on track. I hope this new 'Disney Classic' is the start of many to follow. And boy, oh boy, does this look good! I know, it's nothing more than a little teaser, but still ...
