it's enough to make a girl crazy

OmigodthenewDisneytrailerisout! So yeah. In case you haven't heard, Disney has finally released a teaser trailer for their new 2009 traditionally animated film, The Princess and the Frog. Take a peek.

Look familiar? Mark Henn was also the supervising animator for Mulan, in case you didn't notice. Even in this short clip, Princess Tiana's movements and mannerisms are strikingly similar to those of China's favorite soldier impersonator (that quick head nod, the disarming and apologetic grin, et cetera). You notice it now, don't you?

And to make sure you're all caught up, this is the official story blurb Disney has posted on their site:
A musical set in the greatest city of them all, New Orleans. "The Princess and the Frog" marks Disney's return to the warmth and grandeur of hand drawn animation. The film teams Ron Clements and John Musker, creators of "The Little Mermaid" and "Aladdin" with Oscar winning composer Randy Newman. From the heart of Louisiana's mystical bayous and the banks of the mighty Mississippi comes an unforgettable tale of love, enchantment and discovery with a trumpet playing alligator, a love sick Cajun firefly, and a host of other charming characters at every turn.
Are you as ecstatic as I am right now? Maybe it's all that Dr. Pepper I just drank, but I'm shaking in my chair. With anticipation. The good kind of anticipation. The kind that gets people saying, "Boy, Tillie sure is weird."
