In the last couple of years (let’s be honest, the last decade or so), Pixar has held the monopoly on good animated kiddie films. Sure, other companies have been producing films here and there, but the ones I can remember the clearest belong to that little upstart company married to Disney.
I’d even go so far as to say that other childrens’ films really get a bad rap for not being Pixar films. So when I can, I try to branch out to other companies, just to see what’s going on out there. And while Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog” has a lot to offer (especially to girls looking for a nonprincess character to love), I can’t help but think how much better this film would have been with Pixar’s magic touch.
