First Princess And The Frog trailer online

See Disney’s return to hand-drawn animation

The first trailer for the Walt Disney Company’s return to hand-drawn animation – The Princess And The Frog – is online and you can see it right here.

Spearheaded by Pixar chief (and Disney head of feature animation) John Lasseter, the film takes the fairy tale of The Frog Princess and relocates it to a jazzy New Orleans.

The Mouse House will be hoping that it reignites interest in pencil-powered animation in an age where 3D ‘toons dominate, at least across the pond.

But can it work? Take a look at the trailer below and let us know your thoughts.

      What do you mean "it's online"? It's been online for the last 9 months: http://twurl.nl/aonlsz

      I think it looks great, it's nice to see Disney going back to 2D animation.

      Nice looking, but could go either way at the box office. THe release date as close to guarantees money as it can, and it LOOKS fun. But I think on balance I'd rather see Where The Wild Things Are.
