I’m sure you might have known the news…

Disney is releasing later this year it’s first African-American princess, and the first official one in quite a few years. Not only that but thankfully it’s actually 2D animation like the good-ole days of yore. *HAND ANIMATED CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?* Hopefully it’ll be classic as Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and The Lion King in quality, songs, art and character. Hell I want to see it in theaters!

The style: It’s set in New Orleans. Involving jazz, frogs, voodoo and all that stuff that is much different than the usual European-royal fare of the majority of Princess movies of Disney. Course we have in similar vein the Arabian tale of Aladdin. Definitly not set in white-man’s culture. 😀 We actually have a black princess!

And then comes the villain. MY GOD. I found an article with new pictures of the characters and…like…wow…I’m so glad he’s so dark looking. Seriously, it’s been a long, long, painful while since we’ve had a movie that appears to harken to the days when cartoons were dark and violent in the 80’s and 90’s…and kids liked it. WOW. I HAVE CHILLS DOWN MY SPINE and it’s only a painting we have and nothing else.

First look at the characters.

I am giddy with excitement. And even also the beautiful, grand project of Rapunzel that they’re working on. *unfortunately pink mostly*

It’s a big, beautiful step for animation.
