The Princess and the Frog

The writer-director duo behind The Little Mermaid and Aladdin are back with another sumptuous animated fantasy tale. This one’s based on a fairy tale/novel by E.D. Baker, and is Disney’s first traditional 2D film since 2004. The setting is New Orleans in the 1920s jazz era. Tiana is a waitress at the very bottom of the social ladder until her life is changed by a talking frog. The leggy character in question turns out to be Prince Naveen, labouring under a spell cast by the evil Dr. Facilier. Together they begin a quest to get the spell reversed…

Big name voices include Oprah Winfrey and John Goodman, while Pixar’s usual go-to guy Randy Newman provides the music.

This movie does not provide an entertaining view but rather dull with an un-educational plot....

Just missed making this perfect

Disney were on the right track with this movie - fantastic animation from a byegone era (hand drawn animation is a refeshing change from that god awful CGI) fantastic idea, with a fantastic setting (New Orleans), but sadly too much frog time, not enough princess time. 6 Year old Daughter was fast losing interest in the frogs - she came expecting to see a...

The animation, sparkling and graceful, also ranks as the studio's best traditional work in ages.

The Princess and the Frog inspires memories of Disney's Golden Age it doesn't quite live up to, as I've said, but it's spritely and high-spirited, and will allow kids to enjoy it without visually assaulting them.

This is a return to old school hand-drawn animation for Disney, and it's proven already an excellent move for the House of Mouse with a film well-received overseas by critics and the box office alike.
