Review: The Princess And The Frog
Yeah, that's right. This is a review about the new animated Disney movie, Princess And The Frog. Most people that know me know that I have been a huge Disney fan my entire life. And when I heard the creators behind Aladdin and The Little Mermaid were back doing another animated Disney movie, I knew I had to check it out.
It's been 5 years since Disney has put out a 2D animated movie. And for me, it has been quite a few years since Disney has put out a really GOOD 2D animated movie. So I had my hopes and my doubts about this movie going in. But, it has my hero in it, John Goodman, and Keith David as the voice of the villain? It was smooth sailing once the movie started.
The Princess And The Frog is the best animated Disney movie since The Lion King. It's been a long time since Disney has been able to capture that magic it used to deliver in its movies. With great characters and great voices to go with the characters. The animation of course is top notch, the story is pretty great and actually had a nice little twist that I didn't see coming at the end. Everything worked perfect and as for Keith David as the villain The Shadow Man AKA Dr. Facilier, well, he will go down as one of the all time best villains in Disney history. And I really hope to see him walking around Disneyland next time I go. That is another reason I think I liked this movie so much. It was such a good movie, that I hope to see some of these characters running around New Orleans Square at Disneyland at some point.
Anyways, if you long for the days of some good old Walt Disney Animated movies like Aladdin, then Disney has made a triumphant return to doing what they used to do best.
10/10 (Mainly because of Disney making its return to making great 2D animated movies.)
