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!

Dark Mode for Minions Source!
Within the few days that Minions Source has been open to the public, some users have mentioned that the yellow background is "too bright for their eyes." After making an attempt to tone down the color of the background, we decided that it just didn't look good, so we reverted back to the original background and made it clear that we won't be altering the design any further. But to keep the peace and respect the eyesight of others, I've decided to make a secondary design. As you can see from the screenshot bellow, I've gone with a blue theme that I referenced from [...]
Dancing around the color wheel...lol
Okay folks, one more little (read: FINAL) update on the situation with the Minions Source color scheme and brightness fun. lol We've considered how things looked since it was requested, by a miniscule number of people, that we change the brightness of the yellow because it was apparently so overwhelming...
In discussion with the moderators, and also with some experienced, artistic and creative members, we've made a command decision: the new setting wasn't working. It was toned down...dark. Muddy. (In the exact words of one of those queried [...]
