• What Do You See: Princess Portraits — A bayou-style quiz tests viewers’ knowledge of all ofDisney’s beautiful princesses. Ray’s firefly family creates twinkling portraits of each princess and ifthe player correctly identifies her, they can enjoy a tongue-cheek mini re-telling of that character’sstory.
With extravagant musical numbers, stunningly realized settings and gorgeously rendered costumes, The Princess and the Frog serves up an experience Richard Corliss of Time calls “A start-to-finish delight.” Magic, music and romance are waiting around every corner of the legendary Big Easy as Disney’s newest princess sets out on an exciting adventure through a magical new world. Tiana (voiced by Anika Noni Rose) is a beautiful and hardworking young woman determined to fulfil her father’s dream of owning an elegant New Orleans supper club. When Naveen (Bruno Campos), a handsome prince arrives in town looking for romance, the evil Dr. Facilier (Keith David) hatches a nefarious plot and turns Naveen into a frog. A kiss from Tiana shouldreturn him to his true form, but in a hilarious twist on the classic story, she is instead transformed into a frog herself! The pair must travel into the heart of the mysterious Louisiana bayou with only a trumpet-playing alligator and a love-struck firefly as guides to find the priestess who can reverse the curse in order to find their “happily ever after.”

Included in the sizzle reel are interviews with celebrities Tina Fey, Audra McDonald, Melissa Joan Hart, and Nigel Barker’s wife, Cristen Chin- all of whom brought their kids. Check out the video.
We took DD to see this movie and she loved it. She was singing along with with the characters in the movie and she just adores the frog Prince. If your child loves Disney films, she will LOVE this movie for sure. We are very excited about the movie coming out on DVD because this is one of those classic movies that I know DD will watch over and over again.
