Last week has been a busy but great one for HeyUGuys. One of the things that kept us busy was the the press conference for Disney’s new movie, The Princess and the Frog which is the first hand-drawn animation for just over 20 years. The last completely hand-drawn animation was The Little Mermaid back in 1989. Man, I can’t believe it’s that old!

Directors John Musker & Ron Clements, the latest Disney Princess Anika Noni Rose, Supervising Animator for Mama Odie, Andreas Deja and Producer Peter Del Vecho were all in London town looking forward to seeing the movie hit cinemas across the country this Friday (5th February).

During the interview, the directors talk about the story and how The Princess and the Frog came into being, Anika talks about how she moulded her character into the Tiana and the now know and love and Andreas Deja talks about how 2d animation has been enhanced and what we can look forward to seeing from Disney in the future.

You can check out the full press conference in it’s entirety below. The Princess and the frog is released this Friday, 5th February and you can read our review here and all our coverage of the movie here including exclusive interviews with the directors, Anika Noni Rose and Andreas Deja here.
