The Princess and the Frog


Thought this would be a good film to watch on Disney+ on the days until Mardi Gras. Disney's last (so far) 2-D animated film, it takes place in 1920s New Orleans and focuses on Tiana, who kisses a frog claiming to be a prince and turns into a frog herself, with the two struggling to become human again. Sort of sugarcoats the South at the time (though I don't think America's War Between the States really did a whole lot of good when it came to Northern/Southern and white/nonwhite relations, despite the head Lincoln gets from biased historians), but it had some good music and endearing characters like Louis the alligator.
