THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG
OVERVIEW: Tiana, the ninth and newest enchanting
addition to the legendary lineage of Disney Princesses, makes her home
entertainment debut in a rollicking Big Easy-style fairy tale when The Princess
and the Frog arrives on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on March 16, 2010 from
Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.
SYNOPSIS: Magic, music and romance are waiting around every corner of the legendary Big Easy
as Disney’s newest princess sets out on an exciting adventure through a magical new
world. Tiana (voiced by Anika Noni Rose) is a beautiful and hardworking young woman
determined to fulfil her father’s dream of owning an elegant New Orleans supper club.
When Naveen (Bruno Campos), a handsome prince arrives in town looking for romance,
the evil Dr. Facilier (Keith David) hatches a nefarious plot and turns Naveen into a frog.
A kiss from Tiana should return him to his true form, but in a hilarious twist on the classic
story, she is instead transformed into a frog herself! The pair must travel into the heart of
the mysterious Louisiana bayou with only a trumpet-playing alligator and a love-struck
firefly as guides to find the priestess who can reverse the curse in order to find their
“happily ever after.”

characters and music, which is the essence of all Disney
