TIME – November 24, 2009
“Musker and Clements, the New Old Men, have bucked the odds and made a cartoon feature that is true to vintage Disney traditions yet moves with a contemporary verve and bounce. In an amazing year for animation, ‘The Princess and the Frog’ is up at the top. Go on, give it a big kiss.” Excerpt from review by: Richard Corliss
HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – November 24, 2009
“Bottom Line: Disney brilliantly rediscovers hand-drawn animation and the value of story… This is the best Disney animated film in years… Princess and the Frog reawakens your appreciation of the timeless beauty of the classic style while evoking a fantastic world with such warmth, vigor and confidence that you surrender to its happy lunacy.” Excerpt from Review by: Kirk Honeycutt
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – November 24, 2009
“The filmmakers trust in story over special effects, and character over celebrity voices… They steep the movie in colloquial American culture. They offer a sophisticated musical experience accessible even to the youngest ears. And in doing so, the creative team behind The Princess and the Frog upholds the great tradition of classic Disney animation.” Excerpt from Review by: Lisa Schwarzbaum
USA TODAY – November 24, 2009
“Disney’s ‘Princess and the Frog’ is royally charming… The movie captures the traditional Disney aesthetic, with some up-to-date spins. Tiana is African-American, while Naveen’s ethnic origins are less evident. The film embraces diversity in a natural way.” Excerpt from Review by: Claudia Puig
LOS ANGELES TIMES – November 25, 2009
“With “The Princess and the Frog” they’ve gotten just about everything right. The dialogue is fresh-prince clever, the themes are ageless, the rhythms are riotous and the return to a primal animation style is beautifully executed.” Excerpt from review by: Betsy Sharkey
