The Princess and The Frog: first 5 mins with Pencil Tests

The Cartoon Brew has posted the first 5 minutes of The Princess and the Frog which also contains a mixture of finished sequences and pencil test sections. It's exciting to see Disney return to the fairytale because they stayed away from it for a long time. We now get both things that made them stand out. I know you have heard jokes and funny comments about singing and dancing in animation, but it is something that is very impressive if done correctly. Not many people have the skill set to mix acting and musical performance and make it very entertaining. Madam Mim is a great example from Sword and the Stone, King Louis from Jungle Book, and many others. I look forward to this movie and I am sure most of the people who follow the blog will be seeing it as well.

Swing by Cartoon Brew, give your two cents, or click the link on the right and enjoy.


Thanks again for the emails and the donations. New posts coming soon!

dude, you nailed it when you mentioned Madame Mim and King Looey, Those sequences really are masterpieces in and of themselves. I'm still wanting to do an animated musical in 3D(not the 3D glasses kind), musicals are entertaining but seem to have died out.
