The folks at Walt Disney Animation can still draw. Just in case you weren’t aware of that, they have made a point of illuminated said fact in the opening moments of the trailer for their first hand-drawn film in 5 years, The Princess and the Frog. In their words, hand-drawn animation is back.
While that fact remains to be seen — pending further inspection of an entire movie — there is something to be said about this first trailer, which comes to us by way of our friends over at /Film and their YouTube scouring abilities. This new Disney tale follows the story of Princess Tiana, a young damsel who lives in the French Quarter of New Orleans during the Jazz Age. As you might expect, she meets a frog who claims to be a prince and doops her into giving him a kiss. This changes her world in more ways than one.
The Princess and the Frog will be in theaters in New York and L.A. on November 25, 2009 and will be rolling out to the rest of the country on December 11, 2009. It will feature the voices of Anika Noni Rose, Terrence Howard, John Goodman, Keith David and Oprah Winfrey. Have a look at the first trailer below, which will also be in theaters attached to Pixar’s Up.
