Disney's First African American Princess Is Frame-Ready!
I wrote back in February about how it’s going to be a whole new world at Disney with the debut of Princes Tiana, Disney's first black princess. First in the year-long roll-out for the holiday 2009 movie were toys and costumes featuring the chocolate face of Princess Tiana. And now, the official The Princess and the Frog movie poster–get into it!
Want some more? Below, too, is the official Disney trailer of the movie, due for a soft release in late November, and a wide release in early December. Take a peek and tell me what you think. Around these parts, it’s considered pretty doggone cute; my girls can’t wait to see the real deal–a princess who looks like them–up on the big screen. Frankly, neither can I.
Press play and enjoy!
We are looking forward to Princess Tiana as well. My daughter wanted a Disney Princess themed cake for her bday last year and I found a pic of Princess Tiana and added her center front!! Check it out: http://mama-jenn.blogspot.com/2008/10/kj.html
Wow, this is my first time hearing about this movie, Thank you for sharing:) My daughter will will absolutely love this:) Thanks Disney, finally……
can i tell you how excited i am for this??? we have waited for years for jada to have a brown princess…this just makes my heart bigger!!!!
I am really looking forward to this movie.
I’ve been lurking around MBB, but never posted. I feel compelled to comment about this Disney movie, especially since I’m and Disney Movie Reward Club Member and expecting my first child (a girl!) this August. I admit I dread my daughter being a girly-girl. I was a total tomboy…rejected dolls and dresses. As an adult, I discovered Disney (I have a nice DVD collection..Aladdin and Enchanted are my favs and look forward to adding the long overdue Princess and the Frog). While I want to share these films with my baby girl, I have mixed feelings about the message content. I guess it will be one of those teachable moments
WOW…how come they waited so long….visiting from SITstas and loveeee your blog…hugs rozzi
I heard the interview of the actress who plays the Princess (I can’t remember who it was now), the other day on NPR and loved it. It’s about dang time, what took so long anyway?
(came by from SITS, you commented above me today.)
Happy SITS day!!
Thanks for sharing about the Princess & the frog – it's the first I have heard of it! I am a HUGE Disney fan and am looking forward to watching it.
This is great. So good to see some diversity with Disney.
This is the first time I am hearing about this movie and I think it’s pretty neat. Actually I think it’s about time. Unfortunately, with two boys, I’m pretty sure they will not be interested in Princess Tiana but I will definitely be supporting this movie. Can’t wait to see it. Thanks for sharing!
oh wow i didnt even here about this..I am so excited for Princess Tiana…My girls like Princess Jasmine because well she is more like them so I am sure they will love Princess Tania even more…
Bring on the black princesses’ : ). I can’t wait!
Cool. Looking forward to seeing the movie when it hits theaters. I am very glad to see a brown princess in the works so that I can finally feel comfortable enough to let my little brown princess eat up all of the toys, costumes and such.
I have been hearing the buzz about this movie and I cannot wait. I don’t have a daughter to share it with but I have loved Disney Princesses since The Little Mermaid. I hope this one has good music as they all do. I love Anika Noni Rose’s voice! I may the grown up at the movies by herself! I am a little girl at heart!
My daughter sees every disney movie and I know this one in particular will be very special for her. She recognises that she is indeed brown and enjoys seeing others who look like her.
Thanks for the trailer.
I can’t wait. I have two new chocolate baby girls who will be growing up with Princess Tiana. I’m very excited!
I am a fellow blogging mom trying to make the world better for my kids, and I like your site. My daughter in all about princesses so when I heard about this movie I was jumping for joy…finally! I created a site for my little princess because I could find nothing out there. I would love for you to check it out and for us to network, I am new to this so I would love any assistance. http://www.myfroggyprincess.blogspot.com
