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

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.
About the film: I was pleasantly surprised that Disney embraced what some would hypersensitively label stereotypical black characteristics: voodoo, street dancing, and the little display the cook puts on while he's making fun of Tiana's dream of a downpayment is almost a self-mockery of blacksploitation theatrics. They really took some chances, and the results are thrilling. I think black culture is too important and genuine to tiptoe around, and Disney, of all entities, actually did it right.
The cajun accent of the lightning bug sounded contrived I thought, but it's growing on me. I've seen the movie three times now, and so far it keeps getting better. I think this one will age very well, and will be considered a top 15-or-so all time Disney animated feature (not counting Pixar) when it's all said and done. Maybe even top 10. And for high def presentations, top 5. Highly recommended. This movie is a blast and a treat for the eyes.
Oh, lastly, I should put in a word for the sound. I don't have a fancy set-up, but even on my little Sony sound bar, this is one of the richest sounding blu-rays I've heard.
