The movie is the first hand drawn animation for 10 odd years from Disney Animation Studios and it was so nice to see the medioum brought back after such a long break. You can read our review here but suffice to say, you won’t be disappointed.
I was lucky enough to meet Anika Noni Rose, a real life Disney Princess who plays Tiana in the movie. I ask her how she prepared for the role, how she reacted when she found out she got the part and what it was like to work for the Mouse House and where she draws her inspiration from.
Part One of the interviews with Andreas Deja (Supervising Animator for Mama Odie) can be found here and part two with directors, John Musker and Ron Clements can be found here.
