Disney’s “Princess and the Frog” marks a return to traditional animation and I couldn’t be more excited.
Disney, in an incredibly short-sited move, killed thier hand-drawn animation department. They saw what Pixar and Dreamworks were doing and realized they were failing, epically.
The problem wasn’t that people didn’t want to watch hand drawn films, they didn’t want to watch crappy hand drawn films.
Pixar is awesome because they make awesome films. The stories are rich and original. Yes they are visually breathtaking, but so are tons of 3D films that have come out (see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs), but that doesn’t make up for a lack of a story.
Thankfully, someone at Disney realized that they were making a mistake, and now they give us this:
Thankfully, Avi will grow up talking about Tiana.
