On Friday, my family and I had the priviledge to see Disney’s Princess and the Frog, starring Anika Noni Rose as the voice of Princess Tiana.
This film was done in the old pen and ink style that Disney is known for, and is very, very much appreciated by this momma.
So let’s get down to it…
Disney’s Princess and the Frog is a MUST SEE for everyone. I know there has been a lot of hype about it (all the racial and religious issues, which I fail to see), but let me tell you- ignore it. Every bit of negative press you’ve heard or seen will go out the proverbial window once you see this piece of art.
The story is well written without being too dark. Smaller children most likely won’t be scared (M is 4 and never once was scared of the “darker” moments) and adults will be VERY entertained.
There are several Disney style “morals to the story” that are clearly laid out, so that even M could understand them.
This is not your traditional “Princess Story”. Boys will LOVE this movie. It’s definitely not all tiaras and sequins. Go see it, you’ll see what I mean.
It made me laugh. And cry. Several times.
It makes me want to move to New Orleans. Or at least visit there soon.
The music is AMAZING and will make you dance in (or out, in M’s case) your seat.
It’s Disney’s best movie, in my opinion, since The Little Mermaid.
Plus, we saw bits and pieces of our favorite hotel and fountain- Port Orleans, French Quarter!
You can find it in a theater near you, so check it out! You know you want to…
