The Princess and the Frog is a cute 5 stars worthy Disney movie. I got around to watching it a year ago. Basically, this movie is a twist on an old tale. Our main character is a poor girl named, Tiana. She dreams of opening a restaurant. It was her father's dream. She finally has gotten enough money to buy the place. Parallel to this we have prince Naveen. He was disowned for being a womanizer. If he does not find a bride soon, he will be forced to get a real job.
I liked how his movie showed the life in New Orleans. I also like the Voodoo references. In the movie, we saw two kinds of Voodoo users. Dr. Facilier was from the evil branch of Voodoo. The Lwas have two forms. They have their good versions, and their bad versions. Dr. Facilier called upon their evil sides to make his spells. However, those who call upon evil feel a strong spell exhaustion. In order to avoid this, Dr. Facilier used to do his spells via others. That way it was other people who felt the backfire of the magic.
Mama Odie was a voodoo mambo, a priestess of sorts. Her magic helps people. Her entire home was full of voodoo item. Those bottles were full of ancestral spirits. They are quite beneficial. So, as you can see, there are two sides to voodoo. The problem is that the bad side of voodoo has become quite popularized. Now, everything is evil voodoo doll this, or evil curses that.
However, voodoo is just like every religion. Well, back to the movie. I like the song about the star. I thought it was pretty cute how the firefly was in love with a star. This movie has a lot of cute things. The general theme is that one enjoys better the things earned by hard labor. Sometimes its not good to have things simply handed down to them. This all sounds peachy, however, we would all go for the easy life if we could. Most of the time, hard work does not cut it. That is what happened to Tiana. Despite giving the down payment for her restaurant, she still was forced to pair up with the frog to afford the rest of the place. Life is hard... In any case, this cute Princess and the Frog Disney movie is a 5 stars worthy.
