The Princess and The Frog, for me…was extremely boring. I couldn’t stay awake and I really, really tried. Wanted to walk out, but because it was Disney I stuck it out.
For me this was just extremely formulaic, felt like Ive seen it dozens of times before. It might be good to add a copy to the collection of DVDs, but Disney has many more better 2D animations than this.
This is the problem with big movie production companies, is they are too afraid to take a chance (a BIG chance), where as the independent film makers, are very hungry and will take huge risks, and often have much more “creative” ideas. It just felt like Disney was overly concerned with making a profit than telling a story.
Risk is part of creativity. True creativity comes with taking chances.
