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.

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 Naveen end up marrying Tiana's Rich 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 myself want to get up out of my chair and 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 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.
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.
Visually, Disney has gone above and beyond. They have invoked the steamy feeling of the city of New Orleans in shades of gold and lavender, and in the swamp scenes, some of the backgrounds are so expertly rendered it's like you're looking at a photograph. But what stood out the most with this artwork was the colors. They are a study in thematic contrast. In the scenes with the villain, the bright colors of Mardi Gras are used to reveal a darker, sinister side. The effect is wonderfully jarring and creates an appropriate emotional response: rather than hating the villain, we're led to mistrust him. He's pretty on the outside, but there's something awful lurking underneath. It's like that sixth sense you get sometimes with certain people in your life. In Mama Odie's scene, the color scheme is subtle and muted--until she reveals her inner goodness, and the scene explodes with color; another comment on how purity can hide in the most surprising places.
To say that once again Randy Newman has done an expert job with the music would be an understatement. He had a lot to work with here--the musical tapestry of New Orleans is a mix of Dixieland, Zydeco, and Spiritual. He could have easily chosen one of those styles and stuck with it--instead, he blends all three, and the effect is seamless. The musical numbers tend to stay in one vein or the other depending on the character - which also works to help tell the story -- but the underlying score, while you'll instantly recognize Newman's hallmark sound, is a genius integration. To top it off, because this film takes place in the golden age of jazz, he has deftly inserted musical references to Gershwin. Amazing. With so much to work with, it could have easily been a confusing or even chaotic train-wreck. Not in his hands.
Thematically, this film has taken some of Disney's classic themes and examined them more deeply: they are two-sided and complex. The choices these characters make are never easy--more so than in other films--and that updates these themes so that modern audiences can more readily identify. Similarly, Disney's newest princess, Tiana, is the strongest, most interesting princess to date. She is intelligent, complex - and oozes passion, something that, in my opinion, has only been approached (and I do insist, "approached") in Belle and Ariel. Tiana is a princess for today's woman. Little girls of the world have quite an exciting and refreshing new role model.
Disney's writers have chosen to tell this story in a different way, as well. It's not your typical spell-it-all-out up-front story, and some story elements are never even vocalized, they're visual, and back story and motivation are sometimes revealed after the relevant action rather than before. It was really refreshing to see Disney choose a slightly different construction--it leads to keeping the tale unpredictable and much more engaging. But I'm a writer, so I know it's hard to do this well. For the most part, Disney succeeds. However, there is a bit of a downside to this. Constructing a story in this manner can lead to a lot of subtlety in the way the story is told, and because of this, some of the characters' motives are not always clear right away. This seems to happen the most with Dr. Facilier, the villain. When he's on the screen, it's really important to concentrate or you might miss some key story elements.
All in all, don't miss The Princess and the Frog. It's the best 97 minutes I've spent in a theater in a long, long time.
