Woohoo! This is awesome news. Apparently Disney’s recent ban on hand-drawn films has been lifted (thanks to the new Pixarite decision makers). The new project, currently referred to simply as Frog Princess puts a gender spin on the classic fairy tale and will feature the return of the dynamic “Ron&John” duo who brought us such recent classics as The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.
Now as exciting as this is, I have to remind myself that just because it’s hand drawn doesn’t mean it will be amazing, (just like people were wrong for thinking that just because a film is CG it will be successful) but I believe it WILL be amazing because the right people, who have the right mind-set, are making it. I think this is good news for the industry as a whole.
