Starring the voices of: Anika Noni Rose, Terrence Howard, John Goodman and Oprah Winfrey

Story: The Princess and the Frog is a modern twist on a classic tale, featuring a beautiful girl named Tiana, 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. (Walt Disney Pictures)

Rated: G for General Audiences

Bottom Line: Disney returns to good ol’ fashioned 2-D sensibilities (think ALADDIN or THE LION KING…just not quite as good) in this beautifully animated yet sometimes tame fairy tale. What it lacks in character depth it more than makes up for in positive messages, toe-tapping musical numbers and colorful, chaotic family fun. This frog will, deservedly, be in the box office green!
