    The Frog Princess in New Orleans Square

    Does anyone have any thoughts about the prospect of the frog princess finding a home in the New Orleans Square area of Frontierland?

    I live 2 miles away from Disneyland if Walt would've built it at Riverside and Buena Vista.

    Ha! I hadn't even thought of that, but I suppose it's inevitable, huh?

    ...as long as the pirates are willing to share their space!

    Who the heck is the Frog Princess?

    Isn't the frog princess the next disney hand-drawn animation feature? But why would it be in NOS?

    The movie is supposed to take place in New Orleans.

    Gee..sure would hate to see Jack and the gang bounced out by a toad.

    Or they could just add it to the conglomeration that once was Tom Sawyer Island.

    Re: The Frog Princess in New Orleans Square

    I read about this in the Hollywood Reporter. The Frog Princess will be Disney's first African-American Princess, and she lives in 1920's New Orleans.

    I immediately thought about character appearances in that section of DL, and where she will go in Walt Disney World.

    Dis drawing on N'awlins charm

    By Georg Szalai and Paul Bond / THR

    In New Orleans for its annual shareholder meeting, the Walt Disney Co. said Thursday that "The Frog Princess" the company's first hand-drawn animation project in years, will be set in the Crescent City and feature what John Lasseter called "the very first African-American Disney princess."

    Set for a 2009 release... it will also have a "soulful singing alligator" said Lasseter.

    Here's some pictures from the meeting: (I don't want to spoil it for those who don't want to be spoiled! ) I love how Maddy looks!

    Read about it from comingsoon.net

    When I was reading I immediately thought of DL's NOS. Probably keep most of the Pirate stuff on TSI and a dash of TFP in NOS.

    It's also a bit more understandable now why Alan Meken wouldn't be doing music for this film. Randy Newman grew up in NOS, so he's some what familar and has a connection between his life and the film...

    This is exactly why I frequent Mice Chat, so good to get the scoop!
    I am glad that NOS will have a princess too.
    This summer should tell the tale of how the pirates work out. I was at DL this week and was just enraptured with Captain Jack, one in particular is a dead ringer!

    I liked the first portrait of Maddy. If they want Maddy in her flapper wear, they should put her in NOS, but when she's in princess form, she could do double duty and appear in Fantasyland, too.

    I wish they would have kept Menken. I just can't see Randy Newman doing Disney songs where characters burst into song. He's great with the background anthems for Pixar, but bringing to life a soulfull croc on the banks of the mississip? I'll have to wait and hope.

    I think you can count on seeing characters from the film in and around NOS. Probably for about a year, and then they'll be seasonal.
