Chrissy: the Princess and the Frog

I meant to blog about this right after I saw it.
Alas, I was busy until now.
So, Disney's The Princess and the Frog.
First, I unfortunately was not able to go with my family.
It would've been delightful to watch it with my younger siblings
especially my 7 year old sister.
Instead my art, and slightly more critical, friends took me.

I've been waiting since 11th grade for this movie,
when I heard a rumor about Disney creating a Black princess.
Hand drawn animation is THE BEST EVER!
The character design was simply brilliant as were the set designs.
This movie had so much color and flavor.
Tiana, the main character, is such a strong addition to the Disney Princess collection.
The Prince was funny and charming and the villain was dynamic and entertaining.

I think the only problem I had with the movie was that Tiana looked too much like Mulan.
It seems like almost every ethnic Disney princess is cut out of the same mold.
Still.
It was a beautiful film.

Below are some concept paintings done for the movie.




I want this book so badly!
If anyone wants to buy it for me for my birthday I'd be delighted!
No?
Ah well, it was worth a try.
