Resurrection of Hand-Drawn Animation at Disney

Woohoo! This is awesome news. Apparently Disney's recent ban on hand-drawn films has been lifted (thanks to the new Pixarite decision makers). The new project, currently referred to simply as Frog Princess puts a gender spin on the classic fairy tale and will feature the return of the dynamic "Ron&John" duo who brought us such recent classics as The Little Mermaid and Aladdin.

The first paragraph of this AWN article confirms it, and more details are layed out on the Luxo blog.

Now as exciting as this is, I have to remind myself that just because it's hand drawn doesn't mean it will be amazing, (just like people were wrong for thinking that just because a film is CG it will be successful) but I believe it WILL be amazing because the right people, who have the right mind-set, are making it. I think this is good news for the industry as a whole.
