Watching the film THE PRINCESS & THE FROG is a bit like walking into a time machine. It's a Disney 2D animated film with plenty of references to other fairy tales, like princesses and wishing on stars. It is a bit weird that it is such a throwback.

But it's about a black woman who wants to run her own business. Which makes it even weirder, it's like some alternate reality where Disney made PC films. It takes a little getting used to, but once you're into the film, there's a lot that's wonderful about it. The characters are great, there's a lot of good humor and great music. It winds up with a very emotional ending.

This is a tough year for animation, with a number of excellent films that are all very different from each other.
