The Princess and the Frog will certainly be remembered years later as not only a pioneer Disney movie, but also one that allowed audiences to never let go of their dreams and that with love anything is possible, no matter your age or color.

Sweet songs inspired by the Jazz Era setting, a happy story and a heroine with ambition; this is Disney as I remember it and now your children can too.

Tiana is a wonderful Disney princess; let's hope she gets to come back in a livelier vehicle.

A story everyone can enjoy.

The sweet finale ensures that the whole thing ends on a positive note, admittedly, but it's simply not enough to compensate for The Princess and the Frog's otherwise lackluster, overly familiar sensibilities.

The backgrounds are beautifully drawn. There are sunny days in the French Quarter, spooky nights among live oaks hung with Spanish moss, and a rousing denouement at the Mardi Gras.

The styles are varied, but always in tune with the narrative content, ensuring there's never an unwelcome eyeful of colour and motion.

December 7, 2014
With this delightful romantic comedy (produced by CGI expert John Lassiter of Pixar fame), the Disney Studio returns to the traditional, hand-drawn animation style of Walt's classic period.
December 7, 2014
Visually lush, the film strikes me as the most American of the Disney Princess movies, using uniquely American iconography to paint the fairy tale.
December 7, 2014
Lovely as it all is, it's not the classic Disney's pitching for. It's a nice one for littlies, but adults may find it more of a visual experience than an emotional one.

The Princess and the Frog serves up a scrumptious jambalaya of delectable elements old and new.

If the film boasts any advantages over digital, it's in the pastel richness of its colours and the elasticity of its characters, who enjoy a degree of comic flexibility and range of expressions we still don't get from computers.

Tiana can easily take her place alongside Belle and Arial, even if she'll never quite reach the level of Snow White or Cinderella.

While the film's plot won't surprise anyone it is the wonderful combination of craftsmanship and showmanship on the part of Disney that has created a stunning work, to be enjoyed time and again.
December 7, 2014
There's some magic left in traditional animation after all.

December 7, 2014
Even when the serious stuff falls flat and the racial caricaturing gets a little sticky, the movie still has its moments.

It's fluffy and enjoyable, with an infectious Randy Newman song score and sumptuous animation to compensate for a bland story that goes on longer than it should.

December 7, 2014
The Princess and the Frog is never boring, and that's a bad thing. Once it gets going, it rarely slows down, as though doing so would mean parting ways with kids' attention spans -- or shine light on what's a pretty thin storyline.

The Princess and the Frog is dazzlingly colourful and, considering the advances in computer-generated imagery in recent years, more than matches its contemporaries in levels of artistry.

December 7, 2014
Its approach is both daring and traditional at the same time.
