Princess And The Frog

It's been so long since Walt Disney had chunked out a hand-drawn animation. The last 2D animation out in the cinema by Disney studio was that critically and commercially flopped Home Range. I did not watch that film and was not interested at all in it. So, when news that there'll be a brand new 2D animation coming out this year, I was delighted for, while I do really loved those beautiful and wonderful Pixar movies, I begin to miss those animations like Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Lilo and Stitch, and so on.

The new animation from Disney studio

So, yesterday, with a bunch of friends, we went to watch Princess and the Frog, the new hand-drawn animation by Disney studio. The movie tells the story of Tiana, a feisty waitress working very hard to make her dream comes true, that is to open up a restaurant. All the adventures began when she was turned into a frog for kissing one (Prince Naveen) that was under voodoo spell. So, both of them went to find a cure for their current situations.

Of course, like those classic Disney animations, the movie was also filled with beautiful songs that bound to get you hooked. And the animations. After so many CGI animation, hand-drawn one is truly freshness to the eyes. Storywise, while there's the promised happily-ever-after, there's still something new to it. There's the little twist to the classic tale of Princess and the Frog that gives the movie some bang to it. All in all, a wonderful movie that worth every cents.
