Disney Brings 2-D to Nola

Disney is resurrecting its 2-D animation with a feature called "The Princess & the Frog", scheduled for release in 2009.....and set in 1920's New Orleans! Looks decent, I'll see it just for its setting, of course :)
Another film getting great buzz, David Fincher's "Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons", starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchet (one of my favorite actresses). It tells the story of a man who ages backwards, and the woman he loves, based on an F. Scott Fitzgerald short story, and filmed here in Nola last year. Judging from what Ive seen, this looks to be the first film to truly capture the beauty of the city. It opens on Christmas Day, we'll be there that night to see it...

(^ planning on going and seeing ben buttons soon. for some odd reason I feel it may relate to once and future king storyline in terms of merlin living backwards in time.
(^ not the same.. just interesting aging process twist.
