I have to take a slight departure from my usual posts because I could not pass up an opportunity to tell you folks about Disney's newest animated flick, in theaters December 11, called The Princess and the Frog. The film marks Disney's FIRST Black lead character and is sure to follow in the footsteps of past classics The Little Mermaid (my personal favorite) and Aladdin. Blending themes of love and adventure laced with soul, Princess will captivate audiences with its soulful vibe and charming wonder in the backdrop of the Big Easy. Lending their voices to the film are Anika Noni Rose, Keith David, Jenifer Lewis, John Goodman, Jim Cummings, Terrence Howard and Oprah Winfrey. Check out the trailer below and mark your calendars!
