I think The Princess and the Frog is incredibly underrated.
I loved the story, the characters, the settings, the vibrant colours…and I think Tiana is one of the best Disney princesses. Honestly, I actually believe that if young girls really want to look up to a Disney princess, it should be Tiana. She had a dream that she fought for everyday, even when her circumstances seemed tragic, even when it seemed like there was no hope.She genuinely believed that if she worked hard enough and didn’t fully rely on wishing on a star, she would reach her lifelong dream of opening a restaurant. I was around 13/14 when this movie came out and I can honestly say it impacted me like no other Disney movie. I’m trying really hard not to sound cheesy but how many times did we find ourselves in a seemingly hopeless situation? Where you so desperately wanted to reach your goal but it seemed so far away? I found myself in that situation countless of times, mainly regarding school, exams and going to university (I’m 17 now). But whenever I listen to Tiana’s song…it legitimately gives me hope and I HARDLY EVER say that about movies, let alone Disney ones. Tiana not only dreams about how her future will be amazing, she also plans it and is prepared to work for it.
So yeah, I’m kinda upset that The Princess and the Frog flopped at the box office and simply outraged that she spend 90% of the movie as a frog…nevertheless I love this film and the amazing messages it conveys.

Can we just appreciate how Lottie is possibly the greatest friend, ever?
the entire time i spent watching this movie i was just waiting for charlotte to turn into a traitorous jerk, because that is what the media has told me for my entire life that her character archetype is supposed to do
kudos to disney for proving me wrong
