King of the Elves ... that, I can wait for.
I'm really looking forward to The Princess and the Frog, and Rapunzel. TPATF because it's traditional-animated, Anika Noni Rose is playing the lead (Princess Tiana), and Musker + Clements!
Rapunzel, because Glen Keane (Yes!) is directing, and Kristin Chenoweth is voicing Rapunzel! Glen Keane said that Rapunzel won't be like Pixar computer animation, but it will be more like a traditional animation come to life. Sounds promising to me, and I've come to expect great things from Mr. Keane.
[Av + Sig by Prince Rupert!][I also play Milo Thatch & Rosetta]

OPRAH WINFREY HAS A VOICE IN THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG!
*SQUEEE* (i love oprah )
She'll be playing Tiana [the heroine's] mother.
As for Pixar, I say that these days they're the best in animated films. Like Ratatouille ... that was a great film. Pixar films actually have heart, unlike some studios (>.> ahem... Dreamworks).
But hopefully The Princess and the Frog will put Disney back on track Meet the Robinsons was great (a cute little tribute to Walt Disney's dreams for the future), but I just feel like Disney has been missing something in the recent years. Their last 2-D film, Home on the Range, was pretty lackluster, and then the switch to CGI made me very sad
So needless to say, I'll be there on opening night for Princess and the Frog. But I must say, I'm looking forward to Rapunzel as well.
