Disney is finally getting an African-American princess. In a movie slated for release Christmas Day in 2009, the princess Tianna will be introduced.
"The Princess and the Frog" is set in New Orleans and returns to the hand-drawn styles of the classic Walt Disney tales. It is, of course, a story of love and enchantment. It will include a "trumpet playing alligator" and a "love sick firefly" among other characters.
