Also on the 2009 release schedule is Disney’s newest animated fairy tale, The Princess and the Frog. John Musker and Ron Clements, the directors of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, join creative forces with Oscar®-winning songwriter Randy Newman to serve up a classic-style Disney tale set in New Orleans. Complete with romance, adventure, frogs and a singing alligator, this fantastic new film showcases the art of Disney animation at its best with the return of hand-drawn animation.
So far, no specific release date is available. I'm really looking forward to this film. Disney finally is returning to what Disney does best - 2D hand drawn animation. Some of Disney's most recent films are good, but there's nothing like the 2D that Disney does. Leave the 3D to Pixar, they do it best.
The next question is when we'll see this new princess in the parks.
