The Princess and the Frog

The Princess and the Frog is Disney's first traditionally animated feature film since 2004's Home on the Range, which eked out just $50 million at the domestic box-office; the first fairy tale we've heard of in which a princess (voiced by Dreamgirls' Anika Noni Rose) kisses a frog, then becomes one; and features a Disney cartoon's first black leading lady. Is this departure as risky as it sounds? "No," says Jeff Block, a box-office analyst with the movie-tracking firm Exhibitor Relations. "Disney pushed the envelope even further with Up, a kids' movie centered around an 80-year-old, and got its biggest hit since Finding Nemo." — DM
