Welcome to Princess & The Frog Source!

The Princess & The Frog is Disney's first attempt to bring back the Disney classic animation style that has been successful for more than 70 years.

The Princess & The Frog - Movie Poster

 

 

The story is based on the fairy tale "The Frog Princess". The action takes place in New Orleans : the prince Naveen, is changed into a frog by a mysterious wizard. In an attempt to get back to his human form, he mistakes Tiana, a black young woman, for a princess... who is turned into a frog as result.
 

This is a musical animated film, in the same tradition that Walt Disney brought since Snow White. Although, when compared to the classic Disney Princess films, it has a modern feeling : the prince is a bit on the womanizer side, and Tiana isn't the typical princess either, being hard working and having a strong personality.

The film has been released widely in theaters on December 11th, 2009 in the USA, which makes it the first traditionally animated Disney film released in theaters in five years. (since Home on the Range)

  

 

Will this film bring back the GOOD hand drawn films and lower the CGI/3D crude-humor films trend? Will Disney consider making more magic animated gems like they used to, being followed and taken for reference by the other companies instead of the opposite? This will all depend on the film success!

Strange Magic Gets Box Office Curse

 

Earlier this week, George Lucas’ animated fantasy Strange Magic flew into theatres across North America, and ended up with a box office record. However, that record isn’t as glamorous as some people would expect.


"Nobody came to our party?"

The computer animated comedy musical, which was distributed by Disney under the Touchstone Pictures banner, earned a dismal $5.5 million on its opening weekend at the box office. This officially makes Strange Magic the worst ever opening for an animated feature playing in over 3,000 theatres, beating previous record [...]

DreamWorks Shutters PDI Studio

 

In a time of major struggle, DreamWorks Animation has reported that it will immediately shut down one of its main studios, Pacific Data Images. The impact of the closure will be big as approximately 500 staff will be dismissed. Some of PDI’s laid-off staff will be relocated to DreamWorks’ Glendale studio.

The closure of the studio and the layoffs comes in the wake of some of DreamWorks’ recent animated features under-performing at the box office, which includes Rise of the Guardians, Turbo, Mr. Peabody & Sherman, and Penguins of Madagascar, all four of which [...]

Taking the reins of Animation Source!

 

Hey Sourcers! :)

Allow me to unveil some of my plans for this new year!

AS 2015

I have good news! Now that I can dedicate more time to Animation Source, I am thinking of all the possible ways to improve Animation Source and take it further.

My short-term goal is to :

- Put an effort into finishing the Sources sites that were being worked on, but never got "released", (such as "Secret of NIMH Source", "Regular Show Source"...)

- Make the current sites more active. I'll describe more specific plans about this later, but I have already started by [...]

The Oscar Battle Begins

 

With a great year of animation out of the way, the time has come to for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to announce the nominations honoured to the best of 2014 cinema. With plenty of acclaimed animated films in 2014 (well, at least better than what we got in 2013), it was a tough call on which ones would get in, especially when Pixar was absent that year. But now the nominations for Best Animated Feature have been announced and here they are!

With the help of Marvel, Disney's Big Hero 6 succeeded in pleasing a wide range of audiences, whether [...]
