The Princess and the Frog

I love animated films but haven’t been too excited by Disney’s offerings of late. The Princess and the Frog, however, was a pleasant surprise. The story was fresh, engaging and not too syrupy. The music was excellent and had me and (wonder of wonders) the boys clapping along at one point. I loved the Firefly Ray (beautifully voiced by Jim Cummings) with his courage and marvelous Cajun accent. I also enjoyed Mama Odie (voice by Jenifer Lewis) and her song “Dig a Little Deeper” and the villainous Dr. Facilier (voice by Keith David). I will likely buy this one.
Highly recommended.
