i always liked Disney movies for being hand-drawn, and Pixar's for being CGI...it's just more familiar that way...

Its official! Alan Menken will be composing the music :)

Disney Developing The Frog Princess


Walt Disney Feature Animation is developing The Frog Princess with plans to produce it in traditional 2-D style, rather than the 3-D CGI method that has become ubiquitous recently.

Variety reports that according to sources, the film is being developed by writer-directors Ron Clements and John Musker (Treasure Planet, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid), who recently rejoined Disney after Ed Catmull and John Lasseter became WDFA president and chief creative officer, respectively, following the Pixar acquisition.

Lasseter has given the go-ahead for the project to be made in 2-D should it get the green light. He has previously said he would like to see Disney use 2-D visuals for the right projects.

The last time Disney made a 2-D feature was Home on the Range in 2004, which did not fare so well at the box office.

Alan Menken, Disney's longtime composer, is working on the music for The Frog Princess.
