The Ballad of Nessie

Another tale of the world's most famous lake monster? Why not?

This one's a "traditionally animated" (i.e. not CGI) theatrical cartoon short directed by Stevie Wermers-Skelton and Kevin Deters for the Walt Disney Animation Studios.

The hand-drawn cartoon will accompany one of Disney's feature films, possibly The Princess and the Frog. It will display "art direction evocative of the Disney shorts of the 1940s and 50s" and is touted as telling "the honest to goodness true story of Loch Ness and its most famous resident".

The cartoon is well into production, but release dates are up in the air and no imagery has so far been previewed. Avery -- Lake Monster Fan Extraordinaire -- will have to wait patiently to see what it's like.
