The Princess and the Frog Movie Review


When I learned that Disney would be releasing an original animation movie in 2009, I was ecstatic. While I enjoy the new styles of animation, nothing beats the sense of nostalgia I feel when watching the original Disney animated movies such as Aladdin and Cinderella.

The Princess and the Frog did not disappoint in the slightest.

Not only is it the first animated Disney film to feature an African American as the main character, I believe it is the first Disney film to be set in the United States, specifically New Orleans. I am partial to Jazz music and have visited New Orleans, so I find the music in this movie to be incredible. It captures the essence of the city, and the characters really bring the story to life.

Anika Noni Rose and her beautiful voice are amazing as Tiana, a simple waitress who one day dreams of owning her own restaurant. Bruno Campos adds humor and charm as Prince Naveen who has the misfortune to be turned into a frog by Dr. Facilier (voiced by Keith David). Unfortunately for Tiana, when she kisses Prince Naveen in an attempt to turn him back into a man, she is instead turned to a frog.

This is an inspiring story of ambition, perseverance, and love. While it follows a similar plot to many of the other original Disney animated movies, it holds to its uniqueness with engaging characters and memorable songs.

In my opinion, The Princess and the Frog is an instant classic. It is yet another Disney film that graces my collection to be enjoyed by myself and my family in the coming years.
