First look at Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog”

with 3 comments

Walt Disney Pictures has revealed the first official image from The Princess and the Frog.

Anika Noni Rose (Dreamgirls) stars as Maddy, Disney’s first black princess. The Princess and the Frog is the first hand-drawn film Disney has committed to since the Pixar purchase.

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.
