The Princess and the Frog is a fairytale musical set in 1920’s New Orleans, which tells the story of Tiana (Anika Noni Rose – Dreamgirls), a simple waitress with big ambitions. When Tiana is mistaken for a princess by Naveen, the Prince of Maldonia, (Bruce Campos – Nip/Tuck), now a cursed frog, he asks for one kiss that he hopes will break the spell…But what neither of them expect is for the kiss to transform Tiana into a frog too…
This magical escapade was nominated at the 82nd Oscar Academy Awards®, in the Best Animated Feature and Original Song categories, and includes a host of stars lending their voices. Oprah Winfrey as Eudora, Terrence Howard as James and John Goodman as Big Daddy' La Bouff, all work to create a fun-filled musical masterpiece sure to establish itself as a Disney classic.

What Do You See: Princess Portraits: Mama Odie welcomes us to the bayou, where Ray’s firefly family has just outlined a picture of Tiana. Mama Odie proposes a game to test the viewers’ knowledge of princesses. Ray’s firefly family will arrange themselves to create a picture of one of the princesses. If the viewer correctly identifies which princess is seen in the formation they make, they are rewarded with a brief - hip, and slightly irreverent - re-telling of that princess’ story, which plays as a montage on the surface of the water.
