USA Today on the Return of 2D


USA Today, both print and online editions, has a very good article on Disney's return to traditonal animation. Featured prominently in the article are both Enchanted and The Frog Princess. Included are comments from John Lasseter, Dick Cook, Leonard Maltin and even Simpsons creator Matt Groenig.

One interesting tidbit--the young heroine's name in The Frog Princess is revealed to be Tiana.

I found it interesting that they referred to the movie as "The Princess and the Frog." I wonder if that's a permanent change, working title, or simply a typo. Especially since there's been grumbling about the title and how derogatory it seems in connection to the studio's first animated black heroine.

You know, I really kinda thought it was a typo too, and so didn't even mention in my post.

Curious . . .

Great article. Thanks so much for the link. I'd like to see the same approch at WDI... more heart and less surface detail.
