Hello! This is WinterSpirit809, and I want to review each of the Disney Revival Era movies, starting with the one that officially kicked off the era The Princess and the Frog
, which was released in 2010. I know this movie has gotten mixed reviews, though I know Tumblr loved it, but I don't like to use Tumblr as an example too much, because it's just so...Tumblr. But here is my
personal opinion on it.
The commercial and the movie came out when I was around nine, so it's hard to remember how I felt about watching it. I remembered it being one of those things I wanted to watch, but wasn't crazy about seeing it. In fact, I think I just wanted to see it because I remembered reading the Frog Prince, and I liked it.
So, yeah, it's been a while since I had my first impression, but I can say I wanted to see it but it wasn't the end of the world if I didn't see it.
I think the characters were pretty decent. Tiana was okay, I loved Lottie, and Naveen was cool. Yet, I couldn't form any connections to them, which I will mention later on, but I really enjoy characters that I connect with. I couldn't connect much with Tiana, and I actually found her pretty boring at times.
Lottie, I thought was cute, but, again, I had difficulty connecting with her. She was my favorite too! In fact, there was a minor character that I connected to more than the major characters, but I would have to give the characters a five
I think the plotline was really slow, and although I think the plot itself was good, the way it was carried out throughout the movie was not. It kind of got boring at times, and there were times I wished it would just move quicker.
I did like the storyline, but I didn't like the pace I think is a better way to say it.
Such a small thing, yet I liked it more than anything else in the movie. I thought the music in this movie was outstanding and my favorite songs were "Almost There" and "Dig a Little Deeper". I thought these songs brought better development to the characters than anything else.
I think the lesson was really well done and well brought out and they developed the lesson very well. I felt like, although I wasn't a fan, Tiana was a very developed character. I think plot wise, this part was the most well done.
This is basically the way the film is potrayed, but I definitely think it's underrated. It's not the best Disney movie ever, but it certainly is looked over in terms of audience. I feel like the place where I see the most love is Tumblr, and a lot of that is because it stars a black princess, more than the movie, but that's why I don't like using Tumblr as an example.
I did see her in a Disney on Ice show, but it was a very minor role.
As I said before, I personally didn't connect to it, but I think it was very historically accurate, and Tiana was a good role model for little girls
What I would have done differently
I, personally would have made the plot go at a faster pace and would have made more relatable characters. Maybe not Tiana in particular, because I feel like the ways she wasn't relatable were the reasons the plot developed so well. However, I feel like there are other characters to relate to.
I thought The Princess and the Frog
was an okay movie, but in my opinion it was just okay. I do, however thinks it deserves much more praise, despite my opinion on this movie. I think it would be my least favorite in the Revival Era, but I love/like all Disney Revival Era characters.
Well thanks for reading my article! Next is Tangled!
