I'm so happy Disney 2-D animation is alive and well! A few years ago when Disney announced they would not make any more 2-D animation for theatrical release I was so saddened. I grew up with the art of Disney and it has inspired me artistically more than anything else. As much as I like computer generated animation nothing compares to the artistry of hand drawn animation.
I've been anticipating the opening of The Princess and the Frog since I first heard about it. This movie has all the bells and whistles of any classic Disney movie. The animation is beautifully rendered and some of the musical sequences are a toe tapping blast. The characters are a hoot and should be well remembered with the cast of current Disney favorites. I'm glad to see Disney is back to its traditional roots.
