New photos from Disney's "The Princess and the Frog" + Hugh Laurie to play Prof. Higgins?

Disney have released photos and a poster for their latest traditionally animated (non-CGI) movie, The Princess and the Frog. Doesn't it look absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to see it. . . :-) Click here to view gallery on IMdB, or here to go the official movie website.

Remember this post from last year when I said that Daniel Day-Lewis was going to play Professor Higgins opposite Keira Knightley in the 2010 version of My Fair Lady? Well - that rumour has yet to be confirmed. Meanwhile, there's another rumour spreading through cyberspace that Hugh Laurie will play Higgins! Well, well. . . we shall have to wait and see. Other popular choices among fans for the role of Higgins seem to be Colin Firth and Jeremy Northam. Personally I think Hugh would be better fitted for the part. . . but who knows? ;-)

I am looking forward to it - I saw the preview when we went to see 'UP' in the theaters!!

Hugh Laurie would certainly be a very good choice for Mr. Higgins :)

Alexandra said...

Ooh, Hugh Laurie would be great, too! I'm interested to see who gets it. Colin Firth...that MIGHT be something, too. ;-)

Kiera is still to play Eliza, though?

I'd be interested in finding out who's going to play Freddy, as well. I always liked him, despite his being a wee bit of an airhead. ;-)

Keira will still play Eliza, at least according to rumour - I don't think anything has been 100% confirmed yet.

Yes, it will be interesting to see who plays Freddy. . . I remember a while back someone suggested the guy who plays Prince Edward in Enchanted for Freddy. . . :-D

LOL, thanks Jen. ;-)

Hugh LAurie would be great for that part!

The Editrix said...

Yes, I think so too!

Hugh Laurie was the first person that came to mind for Higgins when I heard there was going to be a new My Fair Lady! I hope there's some substance to that rumor.
