The movie is based from E.D. Baker’s classic fairy tale entitled “The Frog Princess.” It marks the studio’s comeback to hand-drawn animation since Aladdin and The Lion King.
It doesn’t mean Disney will no longer make computer-generated animation with Pixar. As a matter of fact, sequels to Disney Pixar blockbuster hits like Cars, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo are already in the works. They’ll just see to it that there will be a hand-drawn animated feature to come out at least once every two years.
Here are some stills from the upcoming “The Princess and the Frog”:
Disney’s The Princess and the Frog is coming to theaters on Christmas Day and on January 2010 in the Philippines.
