    I thought the original story they were using seemed more interesting. Disney caved to be more PC.

    Too true. I don't have too much hope for this one after all the false starts. I mean, this was in the works since Mulan. Though, hopefully this one will make a little bit of money so they can finally get Rapunzel off the ground.

    That's CGI. Much like TFA, it's just 2D CGI not 3D.

    Actually, the character animation is still done by hand. The "inks" and colors are done by computer using a system called "CAPS" which Disney Animation created and started using in The Little Mermaid, giving the characters a smoother look.

    I'm surprised, I thought Disney had put their foot down on not doing 2D stuff anymore. Good to see that wasn't true.

    They had stopped doing any 2D feature films (everything was moved over to CGI) but that was changed a few years ago. Back in 2006 (when Disney purchased Pixar) Pixar's John Lasseter was put in charge of Disney's animation department and he has made bringing back 2D features one of his priorities.

    They've been doing that since the very begining, so why change now?
