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. Rated G: General Audiences, suitable for ages 6 and older: violence, some scary imagery, tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

This really was a cute movie and I miss hand drawn Disney movies!!! I would love to see more done in the future.
For the people screaming about racism, this movie is set in an older time in classic New Orleans. The rich guy is a white which only makes since for the time. Tiana and her mom both come from a poor section of the city, but it shows strength of character to work hard and go after her dreams. The complaints that America does not have royality really do not make sense to me, because the movie does not claim that anyone in America is royality. They do mention the Marty Gras Princess to change the spell.
For those that worry about the religion, well, the vodoo parts are dark. They shoe the shadow man being dragged off, but not necessarly to hell as many posters claim. He fell victim to his own schemes, something they have done to many villians in Disney movies, examples including Beauty and the Beast, Tarzan, and Hunchback.
We also loved the music. My girls love dancing to it. Overall, we have really enjoyed it.
