Disney has decided to renew with its original roots: a traditional 2D animated movie based upon the classic fairy tale The Frog Princess is indeed under production. The film is titled the Princess and the Frog.
The animated movie is directed by John Musker and Ron Clements, directors of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. Dreamgirls star Anika Noni Rose is lending her voice to the lead character, Tiana. The Princess and The Frog is slated for a release on Christmas 2009.
