Disney celebrates a modern-day classic from the directors of THE LITTLE MERMAID and ALADDIN. Discover what really happened after the princess kissed the frog in an inspired twist on the world's most famous kiss. This hilarious adventure leaps off the screen with stunning animation, irresistible music and an unforgettable cast of characters. Enter Princess Tiana's world of talking frogs, singing alligators and lovesick fireflies as she embarks on an incredible journey through the mystical bayous of Louisiana. Spurred on by a little bit of courage and a great big dream, these new friends come to realize what's truly important in life...love, family and friendship. Overflowing with humor and heart, THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG is an incredible motion picture experience your whole family will want to enjoy again and again!
After the visual bombast of many contemporary CG and motion-capture features, the drawn characters in The Princess and the Frog, the Walt Disney Studio's eagerly awaited return to traditional animation, feel doubly welcome. Directed by John Musker and Ron Clements (The Little Mermaid, Aladdin), The Princess and the Frog moves the classic fairy tale to a snazzy version of 1920s New Orleans. Tiana (voice by Anika Noni Rose), the first African-American Disney heroine, is not a princess, but a young woman who hopes to fulfill her father's dream of opening a restaurant to serve food that will bring together people from all walks of life. Tiana may wish upon a star, but she believes that hard work is the way to fulfill your aspirations. Her dedication clashes with the cheerful idleness of the visiting prince Naveen (Bruno Campos). A voodoo spell cast by Dr. Facilier (Keith David) in a showstopping number by composer Randy Newman initiates the events that will bring the mismatched hero and heroine together. However, the animation of three supporting characters--Louis (Michael-Leon Wooley), a jazz-playing alligator; Ray (Jim Cummings), a Cajun firefly; and 197-year-old voodoo priestess Mama Odie (Jenifer Lewis)--is so outstanding, it nearly steals the film. Alternately funny, touching, and dramatic, The Princess and the Frog is an all-too-rare example of a holiday entertainment a family can enjoy together, with the most and least sophisticated members appreciating different elements. The film is also a welcome sign that the beleaguered Disney Feature Animation Studio has turned away from such disasters as Home on the Range, Chicken Little, and Meet the Robinsons and is once again moving in the right direction.

This story starts in New Orleans in the 1920s. A young lady named Tiana works two jobs...Yes she works two waitress jobs: one at night and one in the day. She works to earn money to own a restaurant, because it was her and departed dad's dream of owning their very own restaurant. One day, during her day-shift, her rich best friend Charlotte LeBouff is excited because Prince Naveen of Maldonia is coming to New Orleans, and is invited to her family estate for a masquerade party. Then Charlotte pays Tiana for catering at party. Excited by the amount of dollars Charlotte had given her, Tiana was sure she got money to the buy the old sugar mill to transform it into her dream restaurant.
For the next part of the story, yes, Prince Naveen did arrive in New Orleans. But not just for an invite to a masquerade party, but to marry Charlotte LeBouff for her dad's fortune. You see, his royal parents cut him off for his spoiled, play-boy, jazzy lifestyle. While on the streets with his butler Lawrence, they come across a voodoo magician Dr. Facilier referred as "The Shadowman.Read more ›
Majority of Disney movies are romances. From Cinderella, Snow White, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid (just to name a few) and now Princess and the Frog.
It seems your issue with this movie more deeply rooted than it being a romance.
I thought the movie was great! It is exciting, the songs are fun and lively. On a deeper level it shows little girls everywhere to stick to your dreams. You don't have to give up any goals or aspirations to have the husband, picket fence and 2.4 kids.... you can have it all!
The fact that disney finally put a visible minority in the spotlight is an added bonus. This is the world we live in.
I highly recommend this movie. It will make a great addition to any Disney collection.
The movie itself, well, if you haven't watched it by now... It is a usual modernized Disney spin-off the title of a folk tale. It has absolutely nothing to do with the spirit of the original Russian tale, but people did turn into frogs, and it is fun and atmospheric. 5 yo finds woo dooo parts a bit scary, but is Okay. Not her favorite movie, but she'll watch it. Rapanzel is a better one, it is miles better than the annoying spoiled brat Ariel (and a better departure from the original than the Little Mermaid, grr!) but this is a good one to have on hand as well for one of those cold winter weekends.
That being said, if you're expecting castles and dragons and more mystical, storybook settings, this movie doesn't follow the usual Disney fare. There is definitely magic, though! Can't take that away from Disney.
I love this movie, and it's worth watching again and again, imo! :)

Beautiful artistry from Disney but morally, all the voodoo is way too graphic and frightening for children. Read morePublished 10 months ago by Martha
