The last Disney Princess to be introduced was in the mid 90s. Soon after this time it started to feel like Disney had lost some of their magic. They started to put out a lot of rather average animated films and unoriginal, uninspiring sequels (The Little Mermaid II: Return to The Sea, Cinderella III: A Twist In Time, Beauty & The Beast: Belle's Magical World etc). A lot of adults had given up hope and most children had turned to CGI films. So when it was announced that Disney were going to release a new animated film and introduce a new princess in 2010 the world knew they needed to pull something special out the bag.

In February 2010 I took my daughter to see The Princess & The Frog at the cinema (we have since also purchased the DVD). I was left with one big question - who loved it more, me or my 4 year old!? The story, the characters, the animation, the songs - all spot on.

Let's start with the story. The story was so much different to what I expected - I expected to sit through 97 minutes of the popular fairytale 'The Frog Prince' (Princess kisses the frog and he turns into a handsome prince. The end) but boy, was I wrong! It wasn't a predictable storyline, even for adults, and had twists and turns all the way through. There was plenty of suspense, plenty of laughs and plenty of emotional scenes - the only way Disney know how!

The film includes 7 original songs. It had been a long time since I had seen a new Disney film (or any kids film for that matter, with the exception of Enchanted) with singing and dancing in it, so this was quite a treat. Many of the songs were a mixture of jazz, blues and zydeco and were really catchy (I saw more than a few toes tapping in the cinema!) - they really captured the mood of the film perfectly.

I thought this film was excellent and had been looking forward to taking my three and a half year old for weeks! Visually, the film was 'old school' animation but included some psychadelic sequences which were impressive. The voodoo character and the spirits he conjours are spooky and my daughter was a bit scared of them but not enough for me to be worried - and they weren't in the film that much.
The princess character was in frog form for the majority of the film which led to my daughter asking on several occasions when she was going to be human again, but it was kind of the point of the film - looks aren't everything.
The supporting characters were brilliant - Charlotte the spoilt but sweet rich girl, Louis the jazz-loving alligator and Ray the lovesick firefly. I particularly loved Mama Odie who wasn't in it enough for me. There were several laugh-out-loud moments and it was quite fast-paced so neither of us got restless.
It was good to see a black lead character (even though she was actually green for most of the film) and great to have a princess who's feisty and independent rather than a victim waiting to be rescued - a much better role model for young girls, I think. Overall it was a fantastic film and I can't wait for it to come out on DVD.

Don't know why this film isn't more celebrated - easily as good as Beauty&Beast. Loved the ethic (wish on a star + hard work = success), the drawings & colours (especially the voodoo spirit things), but most of all the music (jazz/blues with a bit of boogaloo). Personally, I didn't think the voodoo-master was any more scary than any wicked witch in any Disney film - though interestingly he isn't defeated by the hero's goodness, but by his own even more evil masters.

Have a sneaky suspicion that the reason it didn't hit the big time is because the heroine is black, which is plain wrong. Absolutely top class film.

If you or your child are a lover of Disney princesses such as Aurora, Ariel, Belle and Jasmine, then bare in mind that this movie is a bit more grimey than Disney's other fairy tale adaptations, full of bugs, slimey reptiles and amphibians, and gun-toting yokels!

The movie does feature the traditional fairy tale of the princess kissing the frog and living happily ever after, but the story that these characters go through is a bit more complicated than that. first of all, our heroine Tiana is not a princess - she's a hard working young waitress who does not believe in fairy tales and happy endings, she's a firm believer that she'll achieve what she wants through sheer hard work. However, times are tough, and even her hard work is not enough to buy her own dream. Tiana soon meets a womanising prince who has been turned into a frog by an evil magician, and when the frog promises that she'll be rewarded for ending his curse, she reluctantly agrees - and because she's not a princess, she ends up turning into a frog herself!

The two then embark on a perilous journey through the swamps in hope of finding a witch who can restore their human forms. There are plenty of homages to old disney movies from Cinderella to Beuty and the Beast and The Little Mermaid. The backdrops are stunning - some of the best I've ever seen in a Disney movie. The voice acting is top-notch, and includes such veterans as John Goodman, Keith David and Oprah Winfrey. The songs, while not as memorable as most Disney classics, are catchy and lively. there are some lovable and vibrant characters including Tiana's over-enthusiastic childhood friend, the evil magician who conjures shadow demons, a jazz loving Alligator and slack-jawed firefly who is in love with somebody a bit too far out of his reach!

Disney's Princess and the Frog offers a magical and refreshing experience with tons of unexpected laughs and mishaps along the way.
