First Look: Disney's The Princess and the Frog

After Disney's Enchanted late last year dazzled me, I'm anxiously awaiting anything Disney's got next. Their triumphant return to hand-drawn 2D animation began with a few scenes in Enchanted, but The Princess and the Frog is Disney's actual first fully traditionally animted movie since Home on the Range in 2004. The story is about Princess Tiana, voiced by Dreamgirls' Anika Noni Rose, and the movie arrives in theaters in 2009. Our very first look at the princess can be found below.

The Princess and the Frog is being co-directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, whom previously worked together to bring us the Disney classics Aladdin, Hercules, and Treasure Planet.

Disney's The Princess and the Frog

A musical set in the legendary birthplace of jazz — New Orleans — The Princess and the Frog will introduce the newest Disney princess, Tiana (voiced by Anika Noni Rose), a young African-American girl living amid the charming elegance and grandeur of the fabled French Quarter. From the heart of Louisiana's mystical bayous and the banks of the mighty Mississippi comes an unforgettable tale of love, enchantment and discovery with a soulful singing crocodile, voodoo spells and Cajun charm at every turn.

The Princess and the Frog is currently set to be released sometime in 2009.

Glad to see 2-D back. Granted, it's only a still, but it looks promising.Plus, the directors brought us Aladdin, so there's another positive for me. - I'd loved to see the audience response to an animated movie featuring an African-American character.
