The Walt Disney company returns to their roots with this hand-drawn, non-3D animated film adapting the classic story The Frog Prince, and giving it a little Louisiana feel. It's a welcome retreat from the Ice Ages and Shreks and Madagascars flooding theaters today. The Princess and the Frog takes the classic tale of frog-kissing and magical transformations into a new direction when down-on-her-luck waitress Tiana ends up kissing a frog and turning into one herself. Now she must survive alligators, hunters, and other dangers on the bayou if she wishes to be turned back into a human. Perhaps the only thing wrong with this innocent comedy is the forgettable songs. But there are plenty of laughs, cute characters and just the right amount of fairytale elements to make this a welcome return to the Disney of old.
