Princess And The Frog Part 2: Is Disney Making A Tiana Series?

Animation studio Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures created and distributed The Princess and the Frog in 2009. The Brothers Grimm’s German folk tale “The Frog Prince” is the basis for this, Disney’s 49th feature-length animated picture. It was partially adapted from E. D. Baker’s 2002 novel The Frog Princess. Peter Del Vecho produced and directed the film, which John Musker and Ron Clements directed from a script they co-wrote with Rob Edwards.

As well to Oprah Winfrey and Terrence Howard, the picture features Anika Noni Rose and Bruno Campos, as well as Michael-Leon Wooley, Jim Cummings, Jennifer Cody, and John Goodman. Tiana, a waitress in New Orleans in the 1920s, dreams of owning her own restaurant and working hard to make it happen. It’s just a matter of time before Tiana transforms into a wicked witch doctor’s creation, and she must find a method to get back to her human form before it’s too late.

Princess And The Frog Part 2 Storyline

Tiana’s father, who died in World War I, revealed his goal of founding a restaurant in New Orleans in 1926. With two jobs, she doesn’t have time for a social life because she needs the money to make this happen. In New Orleans, Prince Naveen of Maldonia arrives to wed a rich Southern belle like Charlotte La Bouff, best friend of Princess Tiana.

As a tribute to Naveen, Charlotte employs Tiana to cook beignets for a masquerade event hosted by her wealthy father, Eli “Big Daddy” La Bouff. Charlotte will use the proceeds from the sale of the mill to fund the construction of her dream restaurant. Dr. Facilier, a voodoo witch doctor, lures Naveen and his valet, Lawrence, into a fortune reading. To give Lawrence a Naveen-like appearance, the witch doctor uses Naveen’s blood in a voodoo charm.

When Facilier’s disguised Lawrence marries Charlotte, he plans to use a voodoo doll to murder Charlotte’s father in order to acquire control of the La Bouff fortune. A realtor, the Fenner Brothers, inform Tiana at the ball that she has been outbid on the mill. Tiana prays to the evening star for her dream to come true in the midst of her despair. To break Facilier’s influence, she kisses Naveen the frog when he appears to believe she is the princess she believes she is.

After Naveen pledges to fund her eatery, Tiana grudgingly agrees. Due to her status as an outcast, Tiana gets transformed into a frog. It is in the bayou that they meet an alligator who dreams of playing jazz on his trumpet. After Louis reveals to them that they are in fact humans trapped in a voodoo curse, they all set out to find Mama Odie, a local voodoo practitioner.

Ray, a Cajun firefly, leads them to Mama Odie because he loves the Evening Star and no one has the courage to tell him otherwise because he believes it is a firefly named “Evangeline.” Tiana and Naveen develop affection for each other along the journey. The talisman that disguises Lawrence as Naveen is running low on Naveen’s blood, and without it, Lawrence would revert to his own form.

The voodoo spirits (his “friends on the other side”) help Facilier locate Naveen by granting him a shadow demon army in exchange for the souls of the inhabitants of New Orleans, which Facilier offers in payment for Naveen’s safe return. Naveen learns from Mama Odie that the curse can only be broken by the kiss of a princess. They’ve come to terms with the fact that, as long as Big Daddy is Mardi Gras king, Charlotte will be treated as a princess.

Even though Naveen is in love with Tiana, he chooses to marry Charlotte in order to help her realize her ambition of owning a restaurant. After capturing Naveen, the shadow demons bring him to Facilier, who then uses his blood to restore the talisman. Tiana goes to the Mardi Gras parade to look for Naveen after hearing from Ray about his feelings for her. Instead, she finds Lawrence marrying Charlotte while pretending to be Naveen. Tiana flees the scene, heartbroken and believing that she will always remain a frog.

Ray saves the real Naveen and recovers the talisman, which he presents to Tiana just in time for Facilier to shoot him to death. For the talisman, Facilier promises to make Tiana’s dreams come true. After realizing she would rather be with Naveen and that accepting would disgrace her father, Tiana desecrates it. The voodoo spirits capture Facilier for not repaying his debt now that Facilier’s plot has been thwarted.

Naveen and Tiana are reunited after Lawrence is apprehended; Charlotte promises to kiss Naveen so that they can be together as humans; however, the clock strikes midnight, and the kiss fails. Tiana has confessed her love for Naveen. After Ray’s death, a new star appears next to Evangeline at his funeral. Both Tiana and Naveen are restored to human form following their kiss by Madam Odie, who marries them and makes Tiana a princess. In New Orleans, they get married and operate a restaurant, with Louis performing in the band, when they return.
