Disney's Black Princess 2

Remember that neurotic, bespectacled secretary in the BBC TV series The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, played by Anika Noni Rose? If not, CLICK. Anika is a Tony Award-winning singer as well as an actress. She is also the voice of heroine Tania in the latest Walt Disney Studio's animated movie The Princess And The Frog (2009), which is gaining huge publicity for being Disney's first movie with an Afro-American heroine. Of more interest to an art blog is the fact that Disney has temporarily abandoned modern computer-generated imagery in favour of its traditional method of animation: hand-drawn characters with hand-painted backgrounds. (Note: since I first mentioned this movie two years ago, both the title and the heroine's name have been changed; she looks different too: more Manga (CLICK).
