First Look at Disney's The Princess and the Frog

Walt Disney Pictures has just revealed the first official image from the upcoming animated movie 'The Princess and the Frog'.

This will be the return of Disney's traditional 2D animated movie since their purchase of Pixar. This will also be the first time that Disney is featuring an African-American princess. The fairy tale will center on a young girl named Princess Tiana who lives in New Orleans' French Quarter during the Jazz Age.

The movie will be directed by Ron Clements and John Musker (the duo who brought us 'The Little Mermaid'), with music composed by Randy Newman. Anika Noni Rose ('Dreamgirls') will voice the lead character, Tiana. It is currently scheduled for release in 2009.
