The Princess and the Frog Blu-Ray / DVD Combo Pack Review

Synopsis: Disney celebrates a modern-day classic from the directors of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. Discover what really happened after the princess kissed the frog in an inspired twist on the world's most famous kiss. This hilarious adventure leaps off the screen with stunning animation, irresistible music and an unforgettable cast of characters.

Spurred on by a little bit of courage and a great big dream, these new friends come to realize what's truly important in, family and friendship. Overflowing with humor and heart, The Princess and the Frog is an incredible motion picture experience your whole family will want to enjoy again and again!

Review: The Princess and the Frog is Disney's latest foray into the 'Princess' animation genre that they've created and made so famous.  I have to tell you, I was quite the hero when I pulled this one out for my five year old daughter.  She has been so excited to see the newest Princess film, and we weren't able to make it out to the theater to see it.  

I have to say that an african american princess is long overdue!  Kudos to Disney for finally giving little girls of color someone to relate to!  The setting of this film is very creole and New Orleans, which is admittedly a bit stereotypical, but its still a fun and charming watch.   Its also animated without computer animation.  What I mean to say is that real life humans used their hands to draw this film.  There has been such a lack of hand drawn animation that I feared it was a thing of the past.  Thankfully, John Lasseter took over as head of Disney Animation, so that perhaps we can get more of the style of animation that Disney made so famous.  Thanks to the success of the Princess and the Frog Disney will be releasing at least one new hand-drawn animated feature every two years.  This is great news.

This comes in a blu-ray combo pack.  This is a design that was pioneered by Disney and they do it best.  The idea of getting a blu-ray for the family to keep nice and a DVD for the kids to watch and presumably destroy, is perfect.  Not to mention the digital copy that you can load on a iPod, so that the kids can enjoy it on the go!

You're going to be hard-pressed to find a kid that doesn't really enjoy this movie.  It has a great story and fun characters.  Its not just for little girls either, my son enjoyed it more than my daughter even did!  Its just plain fun. 
Bonus Content Includes: Deleted Scenes, The Princess Portraits Game, DVD Feature Film + Bonus, Digital Copy Of Feature Film, The Making Of A Princess, Conjuring The Villain, The Return To Hand-Drawn Animation, The Disney Legacy, Disney's Newest Princess, Bringing Life To Animation, Art Galleries, Music Video By Ne-Yo 

Rating: a strong 5 out of 5 Stars
