Walt Disney Animation Studios visual effects supervisor Marlon West told crowds at WonderCon this weekend that the studio plans to make a 2-D, hand-drawn feature every other year.
The comments came after a presentation on The Princess and the Frog, the first 2-D animated film from the studio since 2004. Due out at Christmas, the film is directed by Ron Clements and John Musker.
Disney also is planning a digitally animated Rapunzel featured, due out in 2010.
