First Glimpses of “The Princess and the Frog.’ Hurry!

The first five minutes of the new Disney film The Princess and the Frog wound up online yesterday-the unfinished clip seems to have been leaked, since the video’s since been pulled from YouTube, but as of right now it can still be found in a few places . Jezebel also has a dozen screen grabs .

The hand-drawn images are gorgeous-not to mention the fact that it’s really fun to see the animation in progress-but I’m particularly thrilled to see two Disney rarities here: girl friends and a doting mom. Is it too much to hope that both survive the rest of the film?
