The Princess and the Frog
A fairy tale set in Jazz Age-era New Orleans and centered on a young woman named Tiana and her fateful kiss with a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again.

A modern day retelling of the classic story The Frog Prince. The Princess and the Frog finds the lives of arrogant, carefree Prince Naveen and hardworking waitress Tiana crossing paths. Prince Naveen is transformed into a frog by a conniving voodoo magician and Tiana, following suit, upon kissing the amphibian royalty. With the help of a trumpet-playing alligator, a Cajun firefly, and an old blind lady who lives in a boat in a tree, Naveen and Tiana must race to break the spell and fulfill their dreams.

Sophia, digital editor, says: 

We watched this seemingly innocent fairytale with our 3-year-old, but it became just too scary and we had to switch off. It's a very cute idea: set in 1930s New Orleans, the music and styling is fantastic and the story is told in a lovely, fresh way. But the "witch" who curses the prince here is the Shadow Man who practises voodoo and his scenes feature skulls, fire and dark symbols that I felt wasn't appropriate for someone so small. Older kids may enjoy it – under supervision.
