TRAILER: The Princess and The Frog...

Honestly, there is no movement that I am more annoyed with that 3D animation (not from Pixar). I may sound like a lame ass, but I miss the days of gorgeous 2D, hand drawn animation. Whether it be classic Disney films like Beauty and The Beast or The Little Mermaid, or more out there films, at least stylistically, like my favorite animated film of all time, The Tripletts of Belleville.

However, after taking a rather lame foray into 3D animation, Disney is returning to their bread and butter, with what looks like a wonderful new tale to throw on their already classic canon. This is the first full length trailer from the Princess and The Frog, and can be seen below, and will be shown before Up, when that hits theatres later this month.

Oh, and before people get all hot and angered for even uttering this films name alongside other classic Disney films, I'm not comparing them, but honestly, tell me that this film doesn't look great, and that it didn't bring you back to those glory days of 2D animation. Just saying.

The Walt Disney Studios continues its fairy tale legacy in animation by taking moviegoers on an all-new “once upon a time” musical adventure. Set in the legendary birthplace of jazz – New Orleans, The Princess and the Frog will introduce the newest Disney princess, Tiana, a young African-American girl living amid the charming elegance and grandeur of the fabled French Quarter. From the heart of Louisiana’s mystical bayous and the banks of the mighty Mississippi comes an unforgettable tale of love, enchantment and discovery with a soulful singing crocodile, voodoo spells and Cajun charm at every turn.

Featuring the voices of Anika Noni Rose (as Princess Tiana), Oprah Winfrey, Keith David, Jim Cummings, John Goodman, Jenifer Lewis, Bruno Campos, Michael-Leon Wooley, Peter Bartlett and Terrence Howard.

Directed by and based on an original story written by Disney’s acclaimed filmmaking duo John Musker & Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules). Scored and music written by Oscar®-winning songwriter/composer and New Orleans native Randy Newman (Toy Story, Monsters, Inc.).

Go see something good!
