Anyone else excited that Disney is making a return to making hand drawn animated films? I love the art of traditional animation and it will be cool to see Disney bring it back to life, all thinks to John Lasseter. Here is a cool little behind the scenes clip for The Princess and the Frog, which focuses on the villain in the story played by Keith David.
In the video, supervising animator Bruce Smith (Bebe’s Kids, The Proud Family) discusses the character of Dr. Facilier, the villain of the film, and how voice actor Keith David influences the animators work and the character’s performance. David is shown performing and being directed by John Musker and Ron Clements. There are also some brief bits of pencil tests and color footage that hasn’t appeared anywhere else on the web.
