The new official trailer for Disney's The Princess and the Frog -- due in theaters this December -- is now available on Disney's official site. The movie is an adaptation of the familiar frog-into-prince fairy tale and the first traditionally drawn animated movie released by Disney in five years.
It's in 1920s New Orleans, and why a prince and princess would exist in this time and place is beyond us. In addition, Dixieland's burgeoning jazz scene is represented by music from ... Randy Newman?? It makes sense that they'd choose Newman for the score, since he grew up in New Orleans. But he's more pop than jazz, and his music certainly doesn't sound anything like the jazz of the '20s, which you can sample here and here.
You can also catch the trailer in theaters on May 29 ahead of Pixar's Up, or on YouTube: Posted 05.11.09 by reelz
