The latest Disney Blu-ray we were lucky enough to be sent (as Blu- ray ambassadors) was The Princess and the Frog. I’ve been itching to see this film, as I heard it was a return to the older style Disney animations. Since getting it four days ago we have seen it three times, it’s that good.
The Princess and the Frog is basically the old fashioned fairy tale slightly reworked. I loved the general story, although I was a bit unsure about how the children would feel about the Voodoo man. I think he sort of went straight over their heads, in the way that these things do for kids. I found him scary though and I think that he is quite a departure for the usual baddies you get in a Disney film.
There are three main reasons why you should watch this film:
- The music is fantastic and its just perfect for the inevitable stage show
- There are some brilliant scenes featuring Baignet’s, what other movie can boast that?
- The animation is just beautiful, modern and old fashioned styles
- The story is lovely, so romantic that I had to steel myself in case the kids thought I was soft
The blu-ray has all these extra’s
- Deleted Scenes
- The Making Of A Princess
- Conjuring The Villain
- The Return To Hand – Drawn Animation
- The Disney Legacy
- Disney’s Newest Princess
- Princess Portraits Game
- Audio Commentary By Filmmaker
