BURBANK, Calif. & NEW YORK — In celebration of Disney’s newest animated musical “The Princess and The Frog,” Walt Disney Studios is opening its Burbank gates to the public for a once-in-a-lifetime advance special engagement, welcoming Disney fans to experience its newest animated musical comedy Nov. 25-Dec. 13, 2009. The advance special engagement will also be featured in Clearview’s historic Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City. Following the film, fans on both coasts will also be treated to The Ultimate Disney Experience, an exciting extravaganza that will feature—for the first time ever—all nine of the Disney princesses (including the film’s Princess Tiana, Disney’s newest princess), as well as exciting Bayou games, movie archives, how-to presentations from Disney animators, Studio tours (for L.A. guests) and more. Tickets went on sale at midnight last night.

“We’re welcoming families to our Studio to see where Walt Disney made real movie magic,” said Dick Cook, chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. “Our Studio is not open to the public, so it’s an unprecedented opportunity for Disney fans to experience a movie right here on the Disney lot where we’ve filmed Disney classics like ‘Mary Poppins,’ ‘Princess Diaries,’ ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ and many more. In fact, Walt built the original theater on the Studio lot back in 1940; it opened just in time for special audiences to view his ‘Fantasia.’ With a newly renovated, state-of-the-art theater, the Studio will open its gates once again, inviting audiences to not only see our newest animated musical, but to take part in a one-of-a-kind experience after the movie. We’re bringing the same exciting experience to New York City at the historic Ziegfeld Theatre and Roseland Ballroom.”

Themed to the film’s setting, New Orleans, The Ultimate Disney Experience will feature something for the whole family.

* PRINCESS POWER – All nine of the Disney princesses will come together for the first time ever, welcoming Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, Pocahontas, Jasmine, Mulan and of course, Disney’s newest princess, Tiana.

* FUN ‘N GAMES — The Experience will feature opportunities to swing on ropes, climb trees, play games and race through the Bayou Adventure, plus a New Orleans’s Bead Toss, Naveen’s Leap Frog, video games and more.

* HOLLYWOOD HEIRLOOMS — Disney movie archives will be on display for the first time ever, including props and costumes from a variety of films like “Mary Poppins,” the “Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy and more.

* MOVIE MAGIC – Guests can learn movie magic from real Disney animators who will be on hand teaching guests how to draw a character from the film.

* PICTURE THIS – Guests can put themselves in the movie at Kodak photo locations. Kodak photographers will capture guests’ images and place them in a scene from the movie.

* INSIDER’S GLIMPSE — Burbank guests will also have the rare opportunity to tour the Studio lot.

Several shows will be presented daily on both coasts from Nov. 25-Dec. 13; show times are 10 a.m., 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., with a 9:30 p.m. show available select dates. Tickets go on sale at midnight Sept. 8, featuring three options for Disney fans wishing to experience “The Princess and The Frog” and The Ultimate Disney Experience in New York or Los Angeles.

The new trailer is absolutely fantastic! This will mark the return for traditional Disney animated musicals. I can't wait to see this!

je continue de penser que ce film est deja démodé... les dessins animés en 2D c'est dépassé, cette bande annonce m'en donne la preuve évidente et je ne crois pas au simple fait que "c'est l'histoire qui compte avant tout...". Chaplin pensait aussi que ses fims (malgré leurs qualités) en noir et blanc allaient survivre au passage à la couleur.

Rapunzel annoncera davantage (si le film est bon) le vrai retour de Disney dans la course aux films d'animation.

Les films de Chaplin ont survécus et sont toujours des chefs d'oeuvres, ce qui a malhereusement aussi survécu c'est la faculté de l'ètre humain d'aller vers ce qui est le plus facile d'accés, d'ou la raison pour laquelle un ado ira voir Transformers 2 mais pas forcément "Le Dictateur" si ils sortaient en salle pour la 1ère fois simultanément.

Lasseter a raison lorsqu'il dit que la qualité de l'histoire est primoriale, mais ce qu'il ne dit pas (et qu'il inclut pourtant dedans) c'est que la qualité des personnages, leur "incarnation" est tout aussi primordiale. Il va de soi que la qualité graphique et la musique le sont également car un film est un tout.

Je ne crois pas non plus une seule seconde que le fait que les films en 2D soient démodés ou non soit le problème. Depuis quand va-t-on-voir un film pour une question de mode? Il est clair que la 3D a quelque chose de plus séduisant pour l'oeil mais ce n'est pas ce qui fait un "bon" film. Et evidemment un film en 2D n'est pas forcément bon non plus, evidemment.

Donc, toute la question est de savoir ce que l'on recherche d'abord. Si c'est un bon film, un excellent dessin animé, le fait qu'il soit en 2D ou 3D n'a strictement aucune importance. Si les auteurs ont du génie ils l'auront en 2D ou en 3D indifféremment.
