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.

So we purchased this one as a replacement. The movie is good quality but we did notice the scene where the octopus dumps out his wine is cut. Not the whole scene, but just the few seconds of the tentacles turning the glasses upside down. Not sure why that is missing but leave it to us (who have probably watched the movie close to 1,000 times to notice.). You moms out there know I’m not exaggerating at the # of times I’ve had to see this movie. 😄
The incredible voice performances bring the characters to life, and fans of Disneyland and Walt Disney World will surely recognize the nods to New Orleans Square, and the Haunted Mansion.
Of all Disney animated films, The Princess and the Frog places within my top three.
Prince Naveen was turned into a frog by the witch doctor, Naveen goes to the masquerade ball and meets Tiana who he believes is a princess because of her costume. Naveen asks Tiana to kiss him believing it will turn him back to a human, However when Tiana Kisses him something else happens and she is turned into a frog herself. Now the 2 are on an incredible adventure together in the Bayou. Will the two become human again like they once were? Will they fall in love!? Will this destroy Charlotte and Tiana's Friendship? Will Naveen end up marrying Tiana's Rich Southern Belle Best friend Charlotte? Oh the questions. You have to watch this movie to see.
I first saw this movie in theaters with my whole family. I loved the music and dancing. The songs just made me want to get up out of my chair, dance and shout for joy. I felt like I really was back in early New Orleans. I loved it so much. There are very few movies that can keep me glued to my seat the whole time. This was one of them!! I think I am going to go watch this now!
I bought this movie for my own collection because I think it's a Disney classic! It's definitely a "BUY ME MOVIE" Get it while you can before it goes into the vault. This is a film like the kids I can watch over and over and never get sick of it. In fact I am not sure who likes this movie more, me or the kids.
And... I liked it again. While it admittedly doesn't have the same power emotions as other Disney Renaissance films, I think it may have something of similar value: this is to me quite reminiscent of vintage charm. Forget the 90s, think of the gems made in earlier decades and this invokes the same sort of feel and appeal.
It takes the fairytale of the Frog Prince and gives it an E. D. Baker sort of twist, with the lovely girl herself turning into a frog as well. Something we've seen before in various media, but charming and popular enough to work with. This turns the plot from a succinct tale to a good ol' fashioned adventure/romp with the Louisiana Bayou as its setting. The traditional witch baddie is switched for some fictional VooDoo flavor in the form of Doctor Facilier, who is deliciously wicked and yet so smooth--I swear he spends the majority of his dialogue if not singing speaking with some sort of poetic lilt. Tiana and Naveen have a delightfully old-school Disney romance with shenanigans, snappy retorts, and just generally great use of fun and endearing characterization. Sure, they fall into the just-a-few-days love story so common to such tales, but it's such a warm and funny relationship build it's easily forgivable. I personally found the side set of characters a whole lot of fun: Louis and Ray were again nods to goody oddballs of a bygone era and Charlotte with her manic sweetness made her my favorite character in the show.
And if you like your traditional animation, this is truly a treat. The colors are wonderful, and while I've never been to New Orleans I did like what Disney did with it. The swamps were a visual treat especially and the animation is a testament to what an artist can do.
I don't think I can give it 5 stars as enjoyable as it is, there were a times where I just wished it could be very so slightly better. It's not my favorite Disney movie. And perhaps this is me subconsciously comparing it to Disney films with more emotional and thematic weight. This likely should be given the chance to rest on its own merits of being a fun, light-hearted tale that asks little more than to do some more with an old fairytale.
And, darn it, on that it certainly works.
