2-D is lovely but...I wasn`t incredibly impressed by the animation in this trailer.

Gah! Ok... is that the same random giant singing crocodile from "All Dogs Go To Heaven" that traumatized millions of children everywhere?
Much like the caterpillar of "Alice in Wonderland" freaked me out to no end when I was a little girl!

i thought Disney had always owned Pixar? anyway, there was an article in my paper about this movie a few months back, i got excited for it but people have been making a fuss over the race of the princess. i say who cares, the animation looks beautifully done and Disney is getting back to its roots (the 2-D classic books roots, not the fact that Walt Disney was racist himself roots)

Oh and suspend your disbelief people. In Disney`s world why not have Louisiana royalty?? Lol.

For Christ`s sake Aladdin had a pop-culture comedian Genie.

I`m just relieved that 2D animation is not completely dead. I`ve come to LOATHE 3D animation. It just lacks any sort of charm or life.

I know this was still done on computers, and the story does not appeal to me that much, but I still look forward to it.

Oh and I love that you people are making a big deal out of the fact that she`s black. You make me laugh.

I guess disney finally gave up in the 3d market then. it`s all good, Dreamworks has them beat.

Wiki sais: "It is being directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, directors of The Great Mouse Detective, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules, and Treasure Planet" and it`s going to have the old sing alongs with it... yet the advert somehow doesn`t give the magic as the old movies did.

When that woman talked in that modern "girl with attitude" style with her hand on her hip in a woman from the getto style, well it`s just not like a princess! I am going to watch it but it made me dout with that "Excuse me" with raised eyebrow thing at 1:11.

By the way, I have to wonder where they got the animators for this since about five years ago Disney decided 3-D was the only way to go and let it`s ENTIRE 2-D animation crew go!

They went across town in Orlando and formed their own company... have not heard from them since...wonder if Disney asked them back...

i`m confused by the bayou like setting and her being a princess, is she like princess of lousiana? i honestly think disney is only returning back to 2D so they can finally add a black princess to the princesses. then again they broke up with pixar, so maybe they were forced to return to 2D.
anyway, its impossible to judge this movie without hearing the songs. if the songs measure up, then the 2D glory is back! :D

The villain looks like Rasputin from Anastacia. Oh, and just to ruin the whole premise of that film, Anastacia was shot, or stabbed, by the Bolsheviks! Sorry, just trying to see how much I know about Russian history being as I have an exam in June.

Sh*t, I thought they fired all their 2D animators after Lilo & Stitch??

I`m a big Disney fan, it looks cute, but I don`t think I`ll be seeing this one..

And if you want to get technical with the Disney Princesses..

Atta-A Bug`s Life(1998)
Keidagakash/Keida-Atlantis(1991)
Melody-The Little Mermaid 2(2000)(Ariel`s Daughter)
Nancy-Enchanted(2007)(Giselle is not a Princess, she ends up with Robert, not Prince Edward. Nancy is the one that marries Edward)

THEN: Tiana-Princess & the Frog (2009)..

On a kinder note, this does look very good. When it comes to cartoons, Disney`s have been awesome, except Beauty and the Beast, oh and A Lion King, both sucked...

Nice, first black princess. Disney has almost evened out the white to colored princess ratio now. Sadly, the movie still doesn`t seem that interesting :/

This doesn`t look very appealing to me. It looks like Disney is trying too hard to go back to its old style, and it puts off the impression of being a cheap imitation of some of their classics -- sort of like all the crappy sequels they put out for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

WTF are you people talking about plots etc for? Look at ANY Disney movie in the last 20 years, compare it with any other! They ALL use the same plot, the same main characters, the same goofy sidekicks, evil villain and henchmen, only the actual image changes, the essence of the characters and plot is the same in every single one.

"@AnwarNova "The one disney movie where the main princess character is african american..."
Uh, there never were any African American princesses. Maybe African African princesses, or African Asian princesses, or maybe even African European princesses, but America was never a monarchy, so we never had any American princesses except perhaps Native American princesses.

It`s funny to me when people describe non-American black people as African American because it seems politically corre
ct, even though it`s factually incorrect."

@Old Ollie, your "correction" to my comment is hilarious because the move is set in New Orleans and the princess is actually an African American waitress. So yes, she`s technically not "royalty" but she`ll be depicted as one since she`s the main character.

The first TRUE female non-white protagonist was Pocahontas, I think.

And she wasn`t even native-american! Look at her, she`s asian.

(And Psst, at best, Jasmine was the... 6th princess).

She came after: Beauty and the Beast, Snow White, The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.

Technically though, you could count Nala as an African princess....

There are black princesses even in Europe.

Also:
Lesotho, Morocco, Swaziland, Canary Islands, Cuerta, Melilla, Zululand, Ashanti, Barotseland, Buganda, Bunyoro, Kano, Kanongesha-Lunda, and Toro, are just some of the current monarchies with black princesses in Africa, not counting descendants of previous monarchies and whatnot.

As for "in New Orleans", Disney likes to be Americacentric. Where even in Aladdin they managed to find the most caucasian looking Arab to play the hero, and the "ethnic" look was reserved for the baddies.

Thus they may be basing this new princess on the black princess in Russia but Americanizing it.

Yay for a black heroine! I didn`t even realize until someone told me that there`s been a heroine of pretty much every ethnic group except for black people. I mean, what was the first non-white heroine? Jasmine? And she wasn`t even the protagonist. The first TRUE female non-white protagonist was Pocahontas, I think.

Doesn`t help explain why there`s a princess in New Orleans, but hey, the prince is from Maldonia, and they magically turn into frogs, so who gives a crap there`s a princess from New Orleans.

V I agree it shares similar concepts, but there are significant differences:

1) Princess doesn`t love the prince, so she won`t be happy as a frog unlike Fiona
2) Ogres, at least, have opposable thumbs
3) Ogres are humanoid, frogs are amphibians.

Oh and I`m lovin` the accents.

BTW this has already been previously hyped point about this movie having the first african-american (the accent makes her american) Disney Princess in the series. Which is personally quite interesting given there`s already an Arab princess, a Native American princess, and a Chinese Princess.
