The classic hand drawn Disney is back! The very first full trailer for Disney's return to hand animation, The Princess and the Frog, has debuted via YouTube (via SlashFilm). I've been waiting forever to finally see a trailer for this, primarily because I've got incredibly high hopes that it could be another Disney classic, and I'm excited to finally see some finished footage! I feel like this kind of wonderful animation has such an important place in our cinematic world (the last hand animated film was Home on the Range in 2004). It may seem a bit goofy in spots, but that's the exact Disney charm that I'm excited to see new once again!

A fairy tale about a girl named Princess Tiana (voiced by Anika Noni Rose), who lives in New Orleans' French Quarter during the Jazz Age, and a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again.
The Princess and the Frog is co-directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, whom previously brought us the Disney classics Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules, and Treasure Planet. The script for the film was also written by Clements and Musker, as well as a handful of other Disney regulars. Princess and the Frog will debut in New York and Los Angeles first on November 25th before opening wide on December 11th.
