Disney Makes History with New Movie

Disney’s new animated movie, The Princess and the Frog, is a new take on the classic fairy tale, and features Disney’s first black princess. It comes from the directors of 1989’s The Little Mermaid and 1992’s Aladdin, which, by the animation is telling, if you’ve already seen those films as I have. Set in New Orleans, the new twist is that the princess (Tiana,voiced by Anika Noni Rose) meets a frog prince, and upon kissing him becomes a frog herself. The two must then set off on a journey to find someone to break the spell and turn them back into humans.

The movie is nostalgic for me, as it seems to bring back the classic Disney musical animations of the late ’80s and entire ’90s. I’m very excited for its release this holiday season.

  1. YAY!! i cant wait to see this movie… im a sucker for romance no matter were it comes from… unless its that stupid twiligh movie that totally and compltely messed up the characters.. but whatever… people liked it… lol… i like the princess and the frog and love the twist they put on it

  2. Well don't know about the black power ting, Dani, but I'm very excited about the history this movie is making and maybe most of all the fact that this movie marks a return to Disney 2-D animation!There was controversy surrounding this movie though (I'm not at all surprised.).The princess was originally going to be named Maddie and be a chambermaid. People claimed this was racist and said that her name, Maddie, was a racist name commonly given to a lower-class black woman. (mind you, MADDIE, not MATTIE.) People also thought it was unfair to have the film set in New Orleans; they claimed it was an "oppressing" city.Just a little "fun-fact"!
