I’m still salty about The Princess and the frog, the Facillier (Bawon Samedi) character and that they made her a frog for most of the movie. It was also a missed opportunity for a black disney prince! I hope Tiana walked so Princess Sadé can run! I hope this redeems Disney.
The Princess and the Frog really peaked my interest in voodoo and witchcraft, especially given that I have family from the south. But the thing is that I’m white and apparently there’s a stigma against non-poc practicing voodoo. So I’m not super open about my studying it, but I still get a huge rush whenever the voodoo scenes from the movie come on.
“I admire the fact that Tiana was able to work both a night shift & morning shift without blowing up at people. As someone fired from a coffee house chain (I flew off the handle at a customer working a double shift during finals week) I’m trying not to lose my current job by channeling my inner Tiana.”
“I sometimes wonder why I’m not good enough to be an actress. But whenever I sit down and watch Princess and the Frog, it makes me feel so good to know I can still reach my goal by working hard.”
“Ray and Evangeline are my favorite Disney couple, because I feel they have the best love story out of any Disney romance. When you look at stars in the night sky, you’re seeing stars that died millions of years ago. That means Ray’s love for Evangeline is so strong and pure, it literally transcends time and space. And his love for her was so great, he even triumphed over death just to be with her.”
“Due to my fear of frogs i dont like to watch The Princess and the Frog. But when i tell anybody that they immediately say i’m racist, and if Tiana was white i would like the movie. I cant help it if the first black disney princess turns into a frog in the movie. I still like the movie up to the point where Naveen shows up as a frog.”
