The Princess and the Frog
Disney's return to hand-drawn animation.

I’m a big fan of Disney films.  Yes, as much as I love my horror, from time to time, I’ll pop Bolt or Pinocchio into my Blu-Ray player too.  The last hand-drawn theatrical Disney movie was the abysmal Home on the Range, and, since then, they’ve had a relatively spotty record with their CG-animated films.  Supposedly, the thing that hurt Disney so much back then was all those direct-to-video sequels and movies they did – whereas once it was an event to see what the new Disney movie of the year was going to be, it became commonplace to see a new Disney movie every month on the rental shelves.

The Princess and the Frog is Disney’s return to hand-drawn animation.  The original teaser did nothing for me, but this new trailer actually has me pretty interesting.  I think the Voodoo Priest bad guy looks pretty spiffy.  Check out the trailer below!

The Princess and the Frog will be out in theaters this holiday season!

One thought on “The Princess and the Frog Trailer!

  1. While all the endless sequels besmirched the reputation of Disney, they also made a ton of money for the company, something that kept them going during dwindling theme park revenues and bomb after bomb of feature films.

    The theater features didn’t fail because of the sequels. They failed because of the formulas. They had four amazing movies and they thought they found the golden ratio. Make your movie with x, y, and z and it will be a huge success. Not so much. From Tarzan and Atlantis onward it was just a downward spiral. Have they learned their lesson? We’ll see. I am glad to see hand-drawn animation again. I prefer it over CG work.

    What I’m not looking forward to is a resurgence of the racial commentary that’s already accompanying this film. Disney’s first black princess. Her white prince. Now her slightly tan prince. Black princess with an accent. Has to be from New Orleans, blah blah blah.
