The festival wasn’t showing the “00’s Renaissance” titles in chronological or reverse-chronological order, but seemed to be starting with the most popular down to the least popular (yes, poor Wreck-It Ralph is still overlooked, and so is Meet the Robinsons), and Frog was saved for last. Make of that what you will. 🙁
Think the whole festival’s publicity angle was trying to conquer Zootopia’s “Wisecracking CGI animals are box-office poison!” image by reminding us how good all the 00’s WDFA movies have been–even those that aren’t Frozen–and in the process, maybe hoping we’d like Frog better six years later if we could compare it to Ralph and Tangled in hindsight. It’s…still not much, though.
