The Walt Disney Classics Collection is pleased to celebrate the return of hand-drawn animation and the historic debut of a new Disney Princess with a beautiful sculpture, Tiana ("Wishing on the Evening Star") as portrayed in Disney's upcoming feature film, The Princess and the Frog.
Limited quantities of the sculpture will premiere as an early release to collectors attending Disney's D23 Expo, September 10 - 13, 2009 in Anaheim, California. Additional details including artist signings at the Expo will be announced through www.D23EXPO.com as they are finalized. The sculpture will be available at authorized Walt Disney Classics Collection retailers later this fall.
The Princess and the Frog film is scheduled to open on November 25, 2009 in New York and Los Angeles and nationwide on December 11, 2009. Authorized Walt Disney Classics Collection retailers will be able to order this sculpture when the fourth quarter releases are announced in the next two weeks and it will begin shipping to retailers in late October.
The elegant sculpture is 8-1/2" tall. Tiana's dress is plussed with opalescent paint, her hair features pewter curls and her necklace includes a sparkling crystal. An Open Edition release, she was sculpted by artist Kent Melton and has a SRP of $125.00 US.
