The film was originally expected to be released in 2018, but apparently Disney has accelerated the production schedule, may also be caused by a great success thanks to the “frozen”, which let Disney find the huge market of princess cartoon.

Although the film is produced by computer CG, but the picture is painted style, a bit like Disney animated short film “Paperman”, but not exactly the same, it’s a new style of CG.
