Just wanted to mention this because it's airing on Tuesday. This is a half-hour holiday special from DIsney that's airing on Disney-owned ABC. Their ad-laden bandwidth-hogging website for it is here.
John Lasseter presented on Prep & Landing at Comic-Con this year. He said that they've instituted a short film program at Disney Animation similar to the one they have at Pixar. And this is the first result of that. The clip they showed was hilarious and reminded me not a little of Toy Story's little green army men, since it's about the "elite squad" of elves who prep for Santa's arrival. If you have the Up DVD, you'll find a trailer for Prep & Landing on there.
ABC is also going to be airing a one-hour exercise in nostalgia about Disney's drawn animation heritage to add to the promo for The Princess & the Frog. I have to say that Disney represented in a big way at Comic-Con this year, and all those guys looked like men on a mission to prove that pencils are still a mighty force for animation. Glen Keane said that it felt good to have a pencil in his hands again, and that he'd bought his first sketchbook in a long time just to draw the weirdos he'd see at Comic-Con. The best moment of that panel (which was to promote the two-volume book, Drawn to Life) was when Glen Keane asked everybody who had a sketchbook with them to raise their hands and about 90% of the room did.
