      again to their surprise.Afterward,Naveen and Tiana buy Tiana’s restaurant together.

      I really loved the princess and the frog.One of the things I liked about it is that it had a nice twist of the frog prince fairytale.In this movie,both a girl and a boy get turned into frogs unlike the fairy tale in which a prince gets turned into a frog. Another great thing about the film was that it took place in 1920s new Orleans.Most past Disney films took place far longer in the past such as The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Beauty and the Beast..A great thing abou tthe movie was that the main couple Tiana and Naveen had very different personalities but eventually took a liking to each other and fell in love.Naveen was a party animal who hated work.Tiana was a hard worker that had no time for fun.Also,I found the characters to be very interesting.I found exciting that the main character Tiana was an African American character.It was nice to see a minority being the main character.This has happened a handful of times in Disney films such as Pocahontas.The character is also very likable.She is a strong woman who is willing to work hard for her goals.She works two jobs

      as a waitress in order to meet her goal of being an owner of her own restaurant.

      I also liked the character Charlotte who was Tiana.Even though,she was sort of spoiled because of living a rich lifestyle,she was always friendly towards Tiana.During one point in the movie,she helped Tiana finance the money she needed to make a down payment on her restaurant.Another character I liked was Dr. Facilier.He was a dark,ominous character with an interesting design.He was thin and had a strange purple outfit with a large top hat.His movements were really animated and energetic.i also liked the alligator Louis.He was a nice addition to the film.He was a jolly alligator who loved to play jazz on the trumpet..Like Dr. Facilier was also animated well.What I didn’t like about the film was that we didn’t get to know Naveen that well.We know he came from a rich family and he didn’t like work.However,we saw little of his life and his kingdom and the personality of his parents.Also,I found Dr. Facilier was a bit underused.He was only mostly seen in the first parts of the film.We then don’t see him for a huge chunk of film time.Perhaps the plot could have involved him a bit more.However,the movie overall was still really good.
