Dishney: More "The Princess and the Frog" News
Though it's been since removed from YouTube by Disney, the first five minutes of the forthcoming The Princess and the Frog has been released--and luckily for you, The Animation Blog still has it available. Verdict? We're pleasantly surprised: Interracial friendships! Father figures! Kittens! The film, which marks the return of hand-drawn animation for Disney, will hit theaters on Dec. 11, 2009.
It was also announced that for the first time ever, Walt Disney Studios in Burbank is opening their gates to the public for some special screenings of The Princess and the Frog, from Nov. 25 to Dec. 13. After watching the movie on a state-of-the-art theater right on the lot, attendees are treated to meet-and-greets with their fave Disney princesses, an exhibition of props and costumes from the Disney archives, an obstacle course and more.
