Walt Disney Animation Studios presents the musical THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, an animated comedy set in the great city of New Orleans. From the creators of “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin” comes a modern twist on a classic tale, featuring a beautiful girl named Tiana (ANIKA NONI ROSE), a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana. THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG marks the return to hand—drawn animation from the revered team of John Musker and Ron Clements, with music by Oscar®—winning composer Randy Newman (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Cars,” “Toy Story”).
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The nineteen-twenties jazz-age setting and the primal-adventure storytelling are boilerplate Disney, scrubbed clean of any real local color.Bruce Diones, New Yorker, 11.26.2013
It's nice to know that the studio behind Cinderella can still cast a spell in two dimensions.Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, 06.24.2010
The visual artistry of the song-and-dance numbers captivates.Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 06.24.2010
Most of The Princess and the Frog looks more like one of Disney's straight-to-DVD sequels than like their animated classics, and the few big, fun musical set-pieces are brought down by second-rate songwriting.A.O. Scott, At the Movies, 06.24.2010
