The Disney Store is releasing a doll of Tiana in a special version of her blue princess costume for the 10th anniversary. I think it's very pretty!:

Yes, it's hard to believe it's been nearly eleven years now since it was released. Time flies. I'm not surprised L&tT was used for the design of Charlotte's neighborhood, something about it always felt similar to the look of L&tT. Never would've guessed they used Bambi for reference though. I never knew Terrence Howard voiced Tiana's father. I guess because he had so few lines, I never thought to look at who did the role. I wouldn't have guessed because he sounds really warm as her father; most of his other roles tend to be mean characters, or is it just me?

It does, huh? Yes, it's hard to believe that it's going to be eleven years. The world was a different place and Disney was a different company. They were slightly beginning to restore their reputation again after their ongoing dud-stamp. And it was uncertain if hand drawn animation could have a future and the buzz regarding the name change of Rapunzel made Disney fans furious. And Disney Channel franchises were facing a huge overexposure, making Disney synonymous with those properties, anyways.

To be honest, it was way easier to see the Lady & The Tramp influence than it was to see the Bambi influence. To be honest, very little of the bayou seemed like it was inspired from Bambi. Which is pretty much what could be said about the forest in Beauty and the Beast as well, where they also used Bambi for reference. And yes, I know I may seem as biased, but it's always irked me how the crew from some features claimed to use Bambi as a reference, while the outcome haven't been clear enough (I have a soft spot for Bambi, nonetheless, since it was one of my true favorites from Walt during my childhood). The only exception is The Fox and the Hound, though. And while that forest may not be identical, at least it comes close to resemble the forest from Bambi. But Hound has always been a new version of Bambi, nonetheless.

I suppose they must reference Bambi in vague ways, maybe look to it in how the animals should move or the way leaves/trees look during rainfall or something random like that. Bambi does look very realistic, so maybe artists sometimes use it for reference on basic things like that instead of simply going out and sitting in the woods. :lol:

What I meant was the visuals rather than the characters.
