Exciting new movies in the future.

I have to say there are three animated film I am excited about:

The Princess and the Frog from Disney. A return to 2D animation with a musical fairytale set in New Orleans. Check out the funny clip below to see a teaser for the film. Looking very cool. ALSO check out Disney’s new website for animation: to see concept art from the film.

and the 3D stop-motion Coraline, based on the childrens book by Neil Gaiman. Here are some making over videos from Rotten Tommatoes. The movie will be presented in stereoscopic 3D! Wow!

The latest film from Japan’s Studio Ghibli and Hayao Miyazaki -  Gake no ue no Ponyo (崖の上のポニョ, Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea). We won’t see it here in the US for a year or so and even though it’s aimed at younger kids I am still looking forward to seeing what the master director shows us. Here is a trailer for the movie which is all ready well in Japan. The backgrounds are amazing and I love the way the Water is really creatures.

    It is amazing how the good the animation technology is these days. But it is the story that makes the film.
