The Princess and the Frog is a 2009 Disney animated family fantasy film directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. The film is an adaptation of the E.D. Baker novel, The Frog Prince and set in New Orleans, Louisiana, during the roaring twenties. In the film, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) is a hardworking waitress who is saving every penny of her tips, so she can open her dream restaurant someday. Prince Naveen (Bruno Campos) of Maldonia is a young prince preparing to visit New Orleans. He lives recklessly and has been cut off from his parents. Dr. Facilier (Keith David) is a voodoo doctor who wants to get his hands on Prince Naveen when he visits New Orleans. When the three characters become entangled, Prince Naveen and Tiana have no choice but to visit a mysterious woman named Mama Odie (Jennifer Louis). With the help of a trumpet playing American Alligator, Louis (Michael-Leon Wooley), and a spunky Cajun fly, Ray (Jim Cummings), Tiana and Prince Naveen must beg the woman to help undo Dr. Facilier's black magic.

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    The dialogue is fresh-prince clever, the themes are ageless, the rhythms are riotous and the return to a primal animation style is beautifully executed.

    It's not easy being green. But to judge from how this hand-drawn movie addresses, or rather strenuously avoids, race, it is a lot more difficult to be black.

    This cheeky update of a classic fairy tale boasts almost as many talking points as merchandising opportunities.
