More About The Princess and the Frog:

The Princess and the Frog is a completely new take on a classic fairy tale love story. Set in the lively city of New Orleans, the tale follows Tiana, a young woman who is working very hard to open her own restaurant. But her big dream is sidetracked when she kisses a frog and is unwittingly taken on an amazing adventure. Who knows, though, maybe a little adventure is just what she needs to really get her life going.
