A modern twist on a classic tale… set in the great city of New Orleans, a beautiful girl named Tiana, a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana.

The beginning of Disney's revival, both in fairy tale subject and traditional animation technique, proving that 3D CGI or superheroes stories are not the only thing that entertain children (and adults). The songs are not as memorable as its precedents, and sadly, I think this movie will be only remembered as the black princess tale.
I can't help but feel it's kind of underrated. Which is a shame really, because this movie marked a step in the right direction after a series of rather underwhelming movies, for the most part. It proves that traditional animation still has a lot of potential, its characters are well-written, and it packs the magic and heart of previous acclaimed Disney movies in spite of a few shortcomings.
this is AMAZING, the structure is the classic fairytale/roadtrip for kids, but it's executed with an incredible class that one would have expected only from old 90's Disney. I missed Disney movies like this for a long time, It's just sad that it didn't do that good in the theaters.
(Vu avec ma fille qekpar sur le web) "Mais c juste un film pour les p'ti zenfants" Certes, mais outre l'obsession habituelle pour les princesses, j'ai trouvé l'idéologie de cet opus affreuse! Les conflits raciaux (au cœur de l'histoire américaine) sont niés au profit de simples inégalités socio-économiques. Et ouf, tout rentre dans l'ordre à la fin, puisque les 2 blacks de service finissant ensemble comme il se doit!
There is some great imagery and the art design is fantastic. It's also great to see Disney go back to their hand drawn roots. Unfortunately the songs aren't memorable enough for this film to go down as a Disney classic.
my obsession with disney's movies goes a way back. like really, really way back. you go as far back as you can and perhpas you get to it. maybe. in light of that, i tend to get more giddy around hand-animated movies but this one just didn't work. it's trying too hard to be funny and flashy but behind the veneer there isn't much to marvel. mediocre at best.
