    Default Princess and the Frog

    What is/was your opinion of this movie? We took the kids to see this last night at the 1.50 theater. I was surprised to see it there already...this movie to me was so built up that I thought it would be quite a while before it'd end up on DVD (being released tomorrow I think).

    To me this wasn't your "normal Disney princess". I thought the story was pretty good, I wasn't crazy about the voo doo or hoodoo. That part was pretty dark for a Disney cartoon, but done well. All and all it was pretty good, not great but not bad at all. I will be getting it on blueray this week.

    I am just curious what your opinion was on this.

    Well...I thought it was just "OK" but my DD (19) really loved it. She liked that they had brought back the old animation hand drawn pictures, etc.

    I loved it !!! If you are not from Louisiana or never visited you probably wouldn't understand the story line.It's all about the cajun lifestyle.I will definitely be buying it tomorrow.It's one of my new favorite disney movies.

    I had been wondering the same thing. I didn't take my DD6 to see it. I had heard it was a bit scary due to the voodoo, etc.

    I guess I will pick it up this week and watch and decide then.

    Heck, I have Tower of Terror at home and haven't let her watch it even though she has been on the ride. (The video on the ride scared her, thus not letting her watch the movie.)

    Tower of terror is scary for most kids.. I've even had 8 year olds lose sleep over it.

    I took 5 and 7 year old girls to see Princess and the Frog and they loved it. I thought the movie was very well done and I loved the theme.. having lived in New orleans it was like a trip down memory lane. I'd put the voodoo about par with an episode of Scooby Doo. There is always a villain and honestly, Ursula has always topped the list as scariest around here.

    We look forward to the DVD release this week.
    I'm not bad. I'm just drawn that way.

    The entire family, including my 22 & 17 year old DD's. Not sure what you mean by "not a normal Disney Princess". How is she different from Belle? Ariel?

    The biggest thing, she married a poor prince. She wasn't a princess like Aurora, Ariel, etc. She was more so like an everyday normal person...her prince was trying to get Charlotte to marry him because he was poor....

    Like I said, I liked the movie it was just very different with the storyline.

    I loved loved LOVED this movie. I love the soundtrack, I thought the animation was pretty good, and I loved the characters (it was a prince with a personality! Woohoo!)

    That, and quite a few of the jokes I think only made sense if you lived/live in Louisiana (the "Ya'll from Shreveport!!??!!" line for one...EVERYONE cracked up at that where I'm from, but I could easily see others being very confused...)

    My DH and I took our DDs and my little sister, 10, to see it and we all loved it! We loved Ray, he was so funny! I can't wait to buy it.

    I don't think the voodoo part was too dark for a Disney movie. Look at Snow White or Sleeping Beauty, both the villains in those were dark. Ursula in the Little Mermaid was dark too. That's the way villains are supposed to be, so everyone knows they're the bad guys.

    Good movie! I'm not surprised it's out on DVD already; Disney is really pushing to get the DVD's out sooner. I remember when it used to be a year or so before a movie would be released on video. That window has been shrinking.

    I really liked this movie!! It was like old-school Disney again (I can actually tell my kids that a cool Disney animated movie was made in my day!). It was also cool that I had stayed at the POFQ prior, and I felt the atmosphere again in it. Pretty cool.

    Loved the characters, and the story. Great movie.

    Loved this movie! The movie truly captures the heart of New Orleans and the culture. I love Ray and Mama Ode! I also love the message of working hard for what you want.

    This was a really good comeback movie! It wasn't incredible like the Renassiance Disney, but still very likeable and satisfying. I was so relieved to see recognizable animation again! I studied animation all my teenagehood and seeing all my animator heroes at work again was AWESOME!!! It took a while to get use to the songs (bought the soundtrack before seeing the movie), but they really grew on me and "Friends on the Other Side" is my fave. I'm from New Orleans, so all the Louisiana stuff they talked about I grew up with.

    DH and I didn't see the movie until I got in on Blu-Ray, but we really liked it. I don't know if I loved it, but we really enjoyed it, and thought the music was excellent.

    I loved the return to traditional animation. They did a fantastic job...it was a beautiful movie.
