After a lapse of three years, Disney finally launched a hand-painted 2D animation [The Princess and the Frog]. The choice to launch this animation when the residual warmth of the two well-received and popular works of the partner company Pixar [Earth Waste Packer] and [Flying House] has dissipated, reflecting that Disney is somewhat lacking in confidence. Naturally, some nostalgic people rejoice and call on everyone to regain their enthusiasm for traditional hand-drawn animation. However, after the first decade of the 21st century, everyone has been fed by various 3D masterpieces. At this time, we choose to use another ten years. The pre-popular way concocted a cartoon in the aesthetic style of ten years ago, which always seems to have a taste of time travel.
No wonder Disney is in a dilemma and a dilemma. Pixar, DreamWorks, and even Sony's competition to improve their skills has cut off Disney's idea of ​​3D; the emergence of many connotative cartoons in recent years has cut off Disney's idea of ​​storytelling; The parody of irony works, and even Disney's idea of ​​​​playing spoofs and subversion has been completely broken. So Disney can only replay the classic card, the nostalgic card, and continue to sell its signature pure and unblemished fairy tales.
Looking back carefully, from [Beauty and the Beast] to [Aladdin], from the famous [Lion King] to [Pocahontas] that influenced [Avatar] last year, Disney has told us how many princess-prince-style dramas. Love fairy tale? Occasionally there are personal growth themes such as [Legend of the Bear], there are adventure themes such as [Lost Empire] and steampunk such as [Xingyin Island], but they are gorgeous and not very popular. After a glimpse It was short-lived, and Disney's idea of ​​finding new themes and new directions was withdrawn every time it took off, so he honestly returned to his favorite love fairy tale. [Magic Romance] in 2007 is an excellent work in a novel form. The interspersed live-action and animation are somewhat similar to the taste of virtual photos into reality. Unfortunately, the old-fashioned "princess and prince have lived a happy life since then" style. s story.
Every boy is a prince, every girl is a princess, this is the idea that Disney wants to convey. With this idea as the core, Disney spares no effort to sell all kinds of warm, touching or inspirational stories. There is nothing wrong with cartoons with children as the main audience, but the traditional way of telling has become an outdated form today, and the inheritance of the classic model has gradually become a kind of stick to the rules and not making progress, or even a little bit of relying on the old to sell the old. Of course, there is no need to doubt Disney's storytelling ability and artistic appeal, but as rivals represented by Pixar continue to challenge themselves and refresh themselves with a variety of "Wow" whimsy in terms of creative plots and forms When creating the box office myth, in addition to adding new members to their "Princess and Prince" series list again and again, can the veteran Disney think of more, newer and more creative ideas?

    Produced by John Lasseter ("Toy Story", "Cars"), he was nominated for the 82nd Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film. It's the path of Disney's classic fairy tale again. Since the rise of Pixar and DreamWorks, I haven't seen a decent Disney animation. If it weren't for the acquisition of Pixar, Disney probably would have been forgotten by everyone. This film can be nominated for Oscar, the level is above average, it is good-looking but not easy to remember, and it does not break through the old routines.
