I donâ€™t know if youâ€™ve heard yet, but Disney has a new movie coming out called The Princess and the Frog. It is Disneyâ€™s first new princess in ten years and she will be the first ever African American princess! How timely is that considering we have the first African American family in the White House? Youâ€™ve gotta admit that Disney is taking full advantage of this opportunity!
Most of the following information was provided in a press release sent to us by Tractenberg & Co. Thanks Caren!
The Princess and the Frog is a musical animated comedy set in the great city of New Orleans. A modern twist on a classic tale, the film features a girl named Tiana who dreams of owning her own restaurant, a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana.
Their new film, featuring the voice talent of Anika Noni Rose, Terrence Howard, John Goodman, Keith David, Jim Cummings, Jenifer Lewis and Oprah Winfrey, film opens November 25, 2009, in Los Angeles and New York and hits theaters nationwide on December 11, 2009.
In addition to their new film, Disney in conjunction with Carolâ€™s Daughter is launching a four-piece hair and body line celebrating Princess Tianaâ€™s hard work, determination, natural beauty, and universal appeal.
