The classic tale of a princess, a kiss, and a frog gets an update (and a change of scenery) with this new Disney adventure; which follows in the studio's grand tradition of hand-drawn animated features. After being summoned back to the Mouse House by Pixar founder John Lasseter in 2006, THE LITTLE MERMAID, ALADDIN and TREASURE PLANET directors Ron Clements and John Musker join forces once again for this 2-D fantasy for the entire family. DREAMGIRLS' star Anika Noni Rose provides the voice of the lead character Tiana, (Disney's first African-American heroine), a beautiful young woman living in New Orleans who may just have to pucker up to an amphibian. Also in the voice cast is Keith David, lending his baritone chords to the film's villain, Dr. Facilier. The all-singing, all-dancing, feast for the eyes that is Disney's THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG, is a welcome return to a much-loved animation technique and aesthetic. Infused with the wonder of voodoo, jazz, magic and fairytale, it is sure to become a favourite for young and old alike.
