The Princess and the Frog by Ron Clements and John Musker, 2009

with Anika Noni Rose, Terrence Howard, John Goodman, Bruno Campos, Keith David, Michael-Leon Wooley, Jim Cummings, Jenifer Lewis, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Cody

Down in New Orleans during the fabulous Jazz Age, young Princess Tiana (voice of Anika Noni Rose) searches for true love and comes face-to-face with snooty debutante Charlotte (Jennifer Cody), ancient voodoo priestess Mama Odie (Jennifer Lewis) and the evil Dr. Facilier (Keith David). But with the help of her mother (Oprah Winfrey), a crooning alligator and other friends, Tiana's fairy-tale dreams may come true after all.

Funny, what I wrote about Tangled could be written for the Princess and the Frog. It was a funny reconversion of the tale, with a nice Louisiana feeling to it, and "a girl can make it on her own" spirit, although when a guy come to the story, it helps... in the end. Well, it always reminds of childhood to watch a traditional Walt Disney, it is simple, funny, likable, no surprise. No further expectation. Although it would be nice to change the message sometimes... no?
