It's a movie poster for "The Frog Prince" from Video Brinquedo. They totally ripped off The Princess and the Frog! (Along with many other Disney movies, such as various Disney Princess Movies, Cars, Up, and Ratatouille.) And Disney's not doing a thing about these rip-offs!

Your thoughts?

I find it sad that they would have the guts to rip off that beautiful movie. :cry:

That's a good thing, on the contrary!
Why? Because only the best selling films get this sort of "cheap copies".
Also, the sales of these films are so much low that it's really not a big deal.

It's not very new either, I remember seeing cheap copies of Aladdin and The Lion King at the time they were released.

That hasn't stopped Asylum from continuing movies dubbed 'mockbusters'. What that company did for the Disney movie, Asylum did to Transformers, POTC, and a whole lot more since 2005, lol. There's a blog called 'Toon Crap' which more or less goes into these in full; one of their reviews hits a very spot-on cash-in which imitates the Disney Princesses series. As in, y'know, the whole cast looks like all of the Disney princesses.

The funniest things to look at though are video game knock-offs from abroad; like those Mortal Kombat games on the NES. Those kept going for about twenty so odd years without stop. But that's another discussion entirely, as some argue that they did it to actually learn a thing or two about games as a whole. Although, lol, I kinda question that given their noteworthy attention today to some gamers.

I'm familiar with those knock-offs, I even own the Transformers knock-off which is called "Transmorphers".

Here's a funny article about these animated movie rip-offs that includes that princess and the frog one: http://www.cracked.com/article_18516_the-6-most-psychotic-rip-offs-famous-animated-films.html

lmao, there was no doubt - even for a second - that the Titanic cartoon was gonna get top honors. Number two though reminds me more like a cheaply produced pilot episode for an animated series based on those old Chevron cars, as opposed to the Disney film. xD

I used to see that Titanic thing available for sale eons ago... xD ...thank god no one's ever Rickroll'd me so far into watching it.
