Walt Disney Pictures has revealed this first photo of princess Tiana in the studio's traditionally-animated The Princess and the Frog (http://www.comingsoon.net/films.php?id=19253), coming to theaters in 2009. The movie is written and directed by John Musker and Ron Clements and features the music of Randy Newman.
A musical set in the legendary birthplace of jazz -- New Orleans -- "The Princess and the Frog" will introduce the newest Disney princess, Tiana (voiced by Anika Noni Rose), a young African-American girl living amid the charming elegance and grandeur of the fabled French Quarter. From the heart of Louisiana's mystical bayous and the banks of the mighty Mississippi comes an unforgettable tale of love, enchantment and discovery with a soulful singing crocodile, voodoo spells and Cajun charm at every turn.

From what I have seen of the film so far, it looks quite nice. If you like the look of New Orleans Square at Disneyland, then you'll enjoy the look of the film.

Wow it is gorgeous. Just to have Ron and Jon back at Disney is unbelievably amazing. The little bit of traditional in the beginning of enchanted brought me back to nineties - going to the theatres and seeing the amazing animated movies of the decade. I am really looking forward to this.
I've been looking forward to this one, I hope Disney can reclaim the timeless quality of some of its other cel works.
2 Things kind of concern me though...
Is she really a princess? What does that even mean in New Orleans?
Randy Newman doing a jazz soundtrack :shrug:
I'm excited to see what they come up with, too bad Glen Keane is occupied with other stuff. I love his animation.
