Just one more month until Princess Tiana takes a bow on the big screen in Disney’s new movie, “The Princess and the Frog,” a sweet spin on the classic tale of a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again. In this version, the frog and Tiana share a fateful kiss that leads them on an action-packed adventure through the mystical Louisiana bayous.

My girls absolutely can not wait to get their popcorn and their slurpies and grab a choice theater seat to witness the debut of Disney’s first African-American princess. Lucky for them, they can totally get their Tiana fix with this new trailer and frequent visits to the official The Princess and the Frog site, which should hold them until the animated feature hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 25, and everywhere else in the country on Dec. 11. Play it for your sweetie, too!
