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
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
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.
