Disney's New Orleans Princess

Disney's New Orleans Princess

The Walt Disney Company's newest project The Frog Princess has the following awesome things going for it:

  • It will be set in New Orleans.
  • The protagonist will be what Pixar Vice President John Lasseter called "the very first African-American Disney princess."
  • It will be Disney's first hand-drawn animation project in years.
  • There will be a soulful singing alligator.
  • The title is Frog Princess.



I'm glad that Disney is finally featuring a black princess; they've only been in business for over 80 years. And while I enjoy digital animation, there is something so appealing about hand-drawn animation. Also, hello — a soulful singing alligator? Sign me up! Maybe Disney's golden years are back.

Update: I found an image of the new princess, as you can see!

That's what I thought, too. She's so CUTE! I'm really excited about this! I just bought Peter Pan, so I'm hoping there will be a preview on it. My only problem is that now our VAST collection of Princess stuff is obsolete.

How exciting! I'll always be a sucker for Disney, and I'd love to see them return to their former glory! Enough of these crappy straight to video features guys! You can do better!

i was just thinking the other day that disney really needs to go back to hand drawn because they get so caught up in the new animation that they lose the story...i am so happy and cant wait to see this movie
