I live in Minnesota and am taking a trip to California, specifically for this event. I'm going to spend two or three days at Disneyland, too... haven't been since 1999. We bought the $50 tickets -- should be fun. Right? :shock:

A new poster - possibly the main one - for The Princess and the Frog has been found at eBay. A large Brazilian version of the one-sheet may be seen here.

That's gorgeous, very much in the old 1990s style.

That one is also on the offical website. If you look under or click something about the special preview events that picture is all over them. It's so busy my eyes don't know what to look at :P Reminds me of the Thumbelina logo (http://www.barrynethomepage.com/images/ ... belina.jpg) and other such 90s/80s animated posters...as Ben said. :D

On the official Disney home page, there's a whole scene posted that has the whole scene when Tiana meets Naveen up until she turns into a frog.

It's a very funny and wonderful, little scene. I also noticed some lines were changed and different from the trailer. "Excuse me?" is delivered a little different. And "I suppose you want to kiss?" is changed to "I reckon y'all want a kiss?" or something to that effect. I suppose they might have brought in Anika Noni Rose to re-record some lines or maybe she just ad-libbed different versions of the lines as actors are prone to do on animated films.

That video is cute. I can't wait to see more.

My mother totally sent me the full page ad from the New York Times last weekend about the special preview days. The page has the '90s' style poster on it. I now have it taped to my closet door. :D

Another article regarding the "controversy" surrounding the film:

Good to see the "no controversy" total up to 85% :)

My thoughts exactly.

^same here.

Silly people. Saying an animated movie is racist (which it isn't, IMO) when there's much worse things happening in the world.

Disney has placed the first five minutes of The Princess and the Frog on YouTube.




Also, Cinema Blend has a new poster for the film. It's basically the previously-mentioned final poster, but with a blue color theme.

Wow...they didn't even wait a day or two for those buying the Snow White discs to enjoy their little "exclusive peek" (or non-exclusive as the case seems to be).

Oops! Looks like that five-minute clip wasn't supposed to be online. I noticed numerous other 'mainstream' sites announcing the clip. Hence, I thought Disney had indeed placed it online. I apologize about the misunderstanding.
