Notes from the Manager
You can check out the trailer for Waking Sleeping Beauty over at Apple (and read a little bit about it, as well).
Whilst researching this strip, I happened upon the Wikipedia page about the Sleeping Beauty story, where I found out that in some early versions of the tale, the princess was raped in her sleep by some king or prince or another. In one version, a King rapes her and she bears two children while she's still asleep — and one of the children sucks the thorn that keeps her asleep from her finger, waking her up.
Damn! Some of those original, un-Bowdlerized fairy tales were messed up.
As a fan of 2D animation, I'd like to think that The Princess and the Frog was like The Great Mouse Detective of a new new renaissance — a minor success that paves the way for some truly fantastic stuff down the road — but we'll have to wait and see how it all plays out.
How much Multiplex can you handle?!
