    princess tiana question

    Hi,

    Just was wondering what you guys think about Princess Tiana
    since in Princess and the Frog, it takes place in New Orleans...

    I have no idea who/what goes into the planning of a Disney movie and I may be way off that the theme park side of Disney would have anything to do with movie planning/production, but

    it seems that maybe a part of the idea behind creating a princess who lives in New Orleans was because a face character of her would fit perfectly in the pre-existing Disneyland land of New Orleans Square

    again, might just be coincidence, but nonetheless interesting

    thoughts?

    I'm sure they considered that when they decided on the film's setting.

    To be honest, I doubt Disneylands New Orleans Square had any major say in the setting of the movie. The money Disneyland makes is dwarfed compared with the film studio. And just for a face character who has met more in Fantasyland than New Orleans Square? Maybe possibly some mega E ticket attraction for not one single character.

    I doubt that Princess and the Frog was created FOR New Orleans Square, they merely took advantage of its existence. I'm sure the movie was made to create a political statement that DL is a support to equality.

    BTW, Princess Tiana is the "hottest" princess.

    NOS is pretty small to need its own face character IMO. BTW that is a truly terrible movie, too many songs and the songs are not that good. I will say however, every version of the Tiana character i have seen in person is by far prettier than of the other princesses. Aurora looked tttooooorree up last time we did fantasy faire. plus tiana doenst cake on the makeup like the others have too.

    I believe I remember seeing something here on MiceAge that they added something to the movie (I think it was a steamship that was drawn exactly like the Mark Twain but I don't remember for sure) specifically for Tiana's Jubilee.

    Depending on the actual girl, I definitely prefer the pretty Pocahontas "princess".

    well, also a potential marketing venture as well, i'm sure.
