I’m hopeful for this movie as well. This has been Glen Keane’s baby for years and I’m glad to see that it is finally coming out. The animation does look great, which I come to expect from Keane, one of Disney’s best animators. (Ariel, the Beast – to name just a couple!) Keane said that he wants to use CG differently than other productions, keeping the main principles of traditional animation in tact. That sounds good to me!
Keep in mind that after Princess and the Frog didn’t do as well as Disney hoped, the marketing department opted to focus the lead male in the trailer and promotional material in order to attract more guys. This is still a princess movie and I’m not sure how big a part the prince will actually play compared to Rapunzel.
I’m a big Disney fan too, so I’ll bet here opening day!
