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 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!

July Bambi Source News
Hello, this is Pawface with the Bambi Source News for July!
I just wanted to show some of the newest creations by some of the members on the Source and myself, plus three recently-sent official characters . . .
New Official Characters
A minor, but pretty memorable "Bambi" character.
One of Thumper's sisters, known in the "Disney Bunnies" book series for having the biggest tail of her siblings.
Oh, my! Changes on AS!
No, you're not dreaming - there are indeed new icons under the site banner!
I wanted to give a modern look to the interface and make it easier to use, with large and easy to identify icons.
It retains all the previous possibilities, they're just reorganized a bit. And this new interface will allow me to add some really useful possibilities soon!
You'll also notice a new "Quick Menu", which replaces the plain ugly select box and should make your life much easier to switch from one Animation Source site to another! :)
