The Princess and the Frog has its charm, but overall is not on the same level as other Disney Princess films. The return to hand-drawn animation for this release was an interesting decision, but it looks great. There is a lot of very well drawn sets and overall the animation is very pretty and smooth. The soundtrack has some solid pieces. "Almost There" should get more recognition than it gets. Additionally, the rest of the soundtrack has a unique southern feel to it. I would consider it one of the more underrated soundtracks produced by Disney. The villain, the Shadowman, has his moments of being menacing, and is overall one of the creepier Disney villains to grace the big screen. The film has good classic Disney morals, and Tiana shows that no matter your background, with hard work and passion you can make your dreams become reality. She is perhaps the hardest working Disney princess to date. A lot of the characters are fun. The story is a fairly is about appreciating what you have and focusing on what you need over what you want. It's a solid premise and it is taught well here. However, the ending to this film is emotional and ends the film on a high note. There are comedic moments scattered throughout the film, but it could have used a bit more. This is a good Disney movie, but it falls well short of being great. Overall, I give this film a 7.5/10.
