I've seen some trailers and preproduction work.... this will either be brilliant and funny or a four alarm fiery disaster.... no idea which.

One would hope that they would do something more substantial or groundbreaking, but then again this IS Disney.

Anyways, rah rah the traditional way (long done my cheering), still not gonna see it till it comes on Tv I am afraid.

woot old school animation!

When was the last time Disney made full 2d animation? I thought they got out of that business for good.

Hope it will be the first variant - I miss good cartoons from Disney!

I'm somehow not surprised at the high percentage of advocates of 2-D animation on this site. XD

Needless to say I too am glad Disney's doing something non-CGI again. And I've got a young sister, so I have an excuse to go watch this in theaters!

I've never been a fan of 3D animation. While I do enjoy Pixar films, it's because I put up with the 3d rather than really enjoy it. It just feels cold to me, compared to hand-drawn 2d artwork.

I think there's plenty of room in the world for both 2D and 3D... Disney's argument for dropping 2D had a heavy ring of "idiot corporate exec doofus" to it.

3D is really cool for some stories... and sucks horribly at others. The medium should be chosen to *fit* the story. Lilo&Stitch was beautiful with the watercolor backgrounds and such.... in 3D it would have been an awful thing.

Trying to think of a 3D film that would have been better in 2D....

The main problem is that at this time the 3D movies marketing is having a lot of competense, specially coming from Dreamworks, Japan is taking over the 2d animation so Disney must expand its area of marketing to catch more audiense.

Oh... yeah!!! Brilliant choice. That movie did NOT need to be in 3D -- it just looked odd the entire time.

From all the trailers I've been watching it's giving me good vibes, but plenty of trailers have decieved me before; so I really can't say how I think this film is going to turn out. I'm hoping for the best as I really miss the old Disney musicals.

i saw a trailer for this a while ago, i thought it looked good. it's also nice to see disney do a non cg and 3d like people before have said. that's a longer trailer than the one i saw, crap that looks good....
