The Princess and the Frog

The stars were aligned for this wonderful throwback to the second Golden Age of Disney animation. Hand-drawn, old-fashioned and filled with magic, this is the best pure Disney toon since The Little Mermaid. The story plays fast and loose with the original fairy tale, setting it in Roaring '20s New Orleans and infusing it with a winking send-up of traditional Disney "princess" films. The characters are flavorful, the music is hot and the animation is a joy to behold. More like this, please! 97 minutes G.
