This a.m. I was hanging with story artists at Disney Animation. The crew working on Princess and the Frog got their first viewing of all the story reels late last week, which now run in toto a little under an hour and a half. The group I talked to were happy with what it saw.
"It needs some trimming, but it's got a twist and it works," one artist said. Another crew member related: "I've seen it twice now, and it's growing on me. John said it was one of the best first passes he's seen..."
Shortly, Princess and the Frog (plus crew) journeys to Emeryville for yet more feedback and notes.
