Get a look at Disney's latest villain

A behind-the-scenes featurette from The Princess and The Frog surfaced a few days ago at Cartoon Brew and it gives us a look at the villainous Doctor Facilier.

Facilier's supervising animator Bruce Smith (Bebe's Kids, The Proud Family) talks about the character and the influences voice actor Keith David has on the character. Keith David is a character actor who has appeared in Platoon and next month's Gamer and All About Steve. If you still can't place him, you'll recognize his voice immediately from cartoons, commercials, and even another animated Disney film, Hercules. And while Facilier may not become one of the most iconic Disney villains - because as MTV Movies points out "he’s male and the majority of great Disney villains have been villainesses," - he'll probably still be a very memorable one:

David describes voodoo magicman Facilier as "a schemer, a conjuror, and a sorcerer of sorts. He's a delicious bad guy, on that roster of wonderful Disney villains." A quick burst of song reveals that Facilier has "friends on the other side" [Empire]
The Princess and the Frog opens in New York and Los Angeles on November 25, and goes into wide release on December 11 in North America.
