Summary: Her best friend since childhood is a privileged white girl whose wealthy father employs Tiana's mother as a dressmaker. When the friend's family hosts a party for Prince Naveen of Maldonia, Dr. Facilier, an expert in black magic, turns the visiting royal into a frog. This movie had funny charterers and it had song that will stick in your head forever.
Summary: Though it isn't on par with some of the "classics" in Disney animation, the Princess and the Frog is a fun and energetic take on the popular fairytale. The Cajun setting is unique for a Disney film and richly executed visually and the varied ethnicities of the characters is also refreshing.
Excerpt: I firmly believe that "The Princess and the Frog" is one of the best non-pixar animated film ever to be created. There has never been a better argument for the revival of traditional animated films. "The Princess and the Frog," follows of the story of Tiana, a young woman who dreamed of opening her own resteraunt since she was a child. She's so close to her dream, when she gets outbid for the building she wants, and worse; turns into a frog due to a voodoo spell.
Summary: The animation is top-notch, but I found the story and music to be pretty standard. I'm glad Disney hasn't given up on traditional 2D animation, but if this is their best effort, it's on shaky ground.
Excerpt: This film brings together all the magic that has been missing since the old Disney films. It is every bit as amazing as Beauty and the Beast, if not a teensy bit more original. The plot is charming, the traditional storyline a bit twinged. The music is stunning from beginning to end and complements the plot wonderfully. The animation is tip top and the characters are very real and recognisable in modern society.
Summary: A nice return to classic Disney storytelling - traditional animation, story, songs, etc. There are some major drawbacks here though - the songs aren't that memorable and the story is extremely rushed. As a result, some characters aren't fully developed and there's too much going on at times. Still, the effort is noble all around and even a somewhat uneven performance from Disney animation is still better than a lot of stuff released today.
Summary: Well, I definitely didn't voodoo magic from New Orleans to tell me how this movie was going to go. There was nothing original about this movie except for the fact that it had soul and the princess was not your typical Disney princess. The Disney movies that I watched growing up were really truly magical.
Summary: Another solid Disney animation. So it is not as good as Lion King or many of the films of the 90's but it is time to bring this medium back. Yeah Up was great and so was Monster's Ink. But, what about something with a little soul. Check it out if you are a fan of old school Disney.
Summary: Such a sweet great new Disney movie. Disney is back to its classic stories and great characters. The message was fantastic and the end even brought a tear to my eye. With its catchy songs and meaningful characters, I think that Disney is back!
