Underrated Disney Gem

Excerpt: 'The Princess and the Frog' takes inspiration on The Frog Prince fairy tale to tell a wonderful original story. Here, our main female isn't of royalty, nor does she long to be such. She's a waitress who's only dream is to open her own restaurant.
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.
Summary: I'm kind of an animation junkie. This is the only recent Disney movie that has been hand drawn and it has an old school Disney feel because of that. Of course great music - it IS based in New Orleans. And a fun story. Plus frogs.
Excerpt: When The Princess and the Frog first came out, I went to see it with my hopes pretty high. Disney has set the bar extremely high for animated films, both traditionally hand drawn and computer generated, over the course of almost an entire century.
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.
Excerpt: First, I have a confession to make. I had bought this some time back, put it on the shelf and watched other Blu-rays that came down the pike as it were. I figured Disney just probably wasn't the same Disney like those old classics. Wow, was I in for a wake up!
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.
