The first five minutes of The Princess and the Frog

I haven’t hidden my excitement for Disney’s upcoming hand-drawn 2D animated feature The Princess and the Frog. As anyone who knows me can tell you, I adore all Disney movies and am ecstatic that Disney (under the new leadership of my hero John Lasseter) decided to bring back the classic hand-drawn animated movies that made the mega-company famous in the first place. Choosing to also reunite the same animation/directing teams from the Little Mermaid/Beauty & the Beast/Aladdin trilogy of amazingness didn’t hurt either.

So, just today the first five minutes of The Princess and the Frog was released on YouTube.

Even though some of the footage is obviously still unfinished, I have to say I am excited. Really excited.

The clip is so beautiful, so rich, so wonderfully nostalgic that I am going to have a lot of trouble waiting until the film’s December 11th release date to see the entire thing.

Check out the opening sequence below:

What do you think? Pretty gorgeous, huh? How nice is it to see a brand new, hand-drawn animated movie from Disney? And the hint of one of the songs sounds absolutely beautiful. I can’t wait to buy the soundtrack and listen to it over and over again in my Jeep until I get strange looks from people at stoplights.

I actually got a little misty-eyed watching this clip. It made me feel like a kid again.

I am so happy right now.
