Gorgeous Character Photos from The Princess and the Frog

Disney has debuted five new gorgeous photos from The Princess and the Frog today, their return to hand-drawn animation due out in theaters later this year. The teaser trailer for this has been playing in theaters in front of Pixar's Up, so everyone has finally been introduced to the movie and knows what it's all about, to a certain degree. That teaser does a great job of introducing the concept, but doesn't show much of the supporting characters, like Louis the jazz singing alligator, or Ray the firefly (seen in the corner of the very first photo below). Anyway, take a closer look at all of these beautiful photos below, in high res, too.
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.

What the hell is digital drawing? Whether they draw it on paper or on a Wacom pad it's still drawing? I'm sure there are advancements that make it easier but it's still a ton of drawing either way.

This looks awesome. I love the fact that hand-drawn cells are being done. It is almost a lost art in itself. There is just something that's a little warmer when it's hand-drawn.

Saw the trailer for this in front of UP a couple of days ago and I must say, it looks awesome. Hopefully the storytelling and everything else is as good as the animation (it all looks like it came together on this one). We need more good, high-profile, traditionally animated movies out there. From all the studios, not just from Disney. Oh, and UP was awesome! Pixar did not disappoint.
