Default The Princess & The Frog (2009)

Buat yang kangen sama animasi 2D-Disney

Tayang di bioskop-bioskop Indonesia mulai 6 Januari 2010

When the free-spirited, jazz-loving Prince Naveen of Maldonia (Bruno Campos) comes to town, a deal with a shady voodoo doctor (Keith David) goes bad and the once suave royal is turned into a frog. In a desperate attempt to be human again, a favor in exchange for a fateful kiss on the lips from the beautiful girl, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), takes an unexpected turn and leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana to the banks of the almighty Mississippi and back in time for Mardi Gras in New Orleans. An unforgettable tale filled with music, humor and heart where two frogs—along with the help of a 197-year-old voodoo priestess, a love-sick Cajun firefly, and a trumpet-playing alligator—discover that what they want isn’t as important as what they need.

# Anika Noni Rose as Tiana, a 19-year-old waitress and aspiring chef who dreams of owning her own restaurant one day.She is the heroine of the film.
* Elizabeth Dampier voices Tiana as a child.
# Bruno Campos as Prince Naveen, an early-twenty-something, gregarious, smooth-talking, and fun-loving prince who comes to the French Quarter for the jazz scene and with whom Tiana and Charlotte both fall in love. Due to being new in the city, he is persuaded by the shady Dr. Facilier into taking a tour of his office, which results in a curse transforming him into a frog. He was originally named "Harry."
# Jennifer Cody as Charlotte La Bouff, an 18-year-old spoiled southern débutante, diva, and Tiana's best friend.
* Breanna Brooks voices Charlotte as a child.
# Keith David as Doctor Facilier, the main villain of the film. He was originally named "Doctor Duvalier" and was a voodoo magician and fortune teller. In a recently updated script, he is both a palm reader and a voodoo practitioner who tricks Naveen into making a deal with him that turns the prince into a frog (he ironically asks Naveen if the "green" [which Naveen thought was money] was what he wanted). Keith David describes Doctor Facilier as "A schemer, a conjurer and a sorcerer of sorts."
# Jenifer Lewis as Mama Odie, a 197-year-old blind voodoo priestess who serves as the film's Fairy Godmother. She owns a pet snake named JuJu.
# Jim Cummings as Ray, a lovesick Cajun firefly who knows Mama Odie and offers to help the frogs get to her. He is in love with the Evening Star he named "Evangeline" and thinks it's another firefly.
# Michael-Leon Wooley as Louis, a jazz-singing alligator who is comical, manic, high-strung and plays the trumpet. His dream is to become human so he can join a jazz band.
# JuJu, Mama Odie's pet snake and apprentice.
# Peter Bartlett as Lawrence, Prince Naveen's pompous and jaded valet who is clearly annoyed with the carefree prince's antics. He eventually becomes an ally to Dr. Facilier and is transformed into a Naveen look-a-like (while the real Naveen has been turned into a frog). He will serve as a secondary villain in the film.
# John Goodman as Eli "Big Daddy" La Bouff, a wealthy and friendly Southern sugar mill owner and father of Charlotte La Bouff.
# Oprah Winfrey as Eudora, Tiana's mother.
# Terrence Howard as James, Tiana's father.
# Don Hall as Darnell, a frog hunter.

# The first hand-drawn Disney animated film since Home on the Range (2004).
# At one point in the trailer, just briefly, you can see the 'A113' (something that has appeared in all Pixar movies) on the streetcar that Princess is trying to get on.
# Originally titled "The Frog Princess," Disney changed several key elements to the film after receiving numerous complaints of racial insensitivity. Besides retitling the picture to avoid the implication that the first Afro-American Disney princess was somehow ugly or animal, the lead character's name changed from Maddy to Tiana since,"Maddy" sounded too much like "Mammy." A subplot about her working as a maid was also dropped to avoid negative stereotypes.
# Jennifer Hudson, Alicia Keys and Tyra Banks were all considered for the lead role. Keyes and Banks personally lobbied the studio for the part.
# The Princess and the Frog is the first Disney movie to feature a black princess.
# This is the first 2-D animated Disney film for composer Randy Newman, who previously scored the Disney/Pixar films Toy Story (1995), A Bug's Life (1998), Toy Story 2 (1999), Monsters, Inc. (2001), and Cars (2006). Alan Menken and his new lyricist Glenn Slater were originally going to do the music for the film, but John Lasseter didn't want the public to feel that Disney was becoming repetitive, because Menken had been scoring another fairy tale film, Enchanted (2007).
# Tiana is left-handed for a reason: Anika Noni Rose, the voice of Tiana, asked for it because she is a left-handed. Mark Henn, supervising animator of the princess accepted.
# Prince Naveen is from a fictional country in the Mediterranean named Maldonia. The kingdom's name is a mix between Malta and Macedonia.
# The alligator character in the film is named Louis in honor of jazz great Louis Armstrong.
# In February 2007, it was reported that 'Jennifer Hudson' and Anika Noni Rose were top contenders for the voice of the princess, and that Alicia Keys directly contacted Disney's studio chief Dick Cook, telling him that she wanted the role very much.
# During the Walt Disney Company's annual shareholder meeting in March 2007, Randy Newman performed a new song written for the movie. He was accompanied by the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
