The Princess and the Frog Gets 3 Oscar Nominations



Currently showing in Philippine cinemas, Walt Disney Pictures’ new animated comedy “The Princess and the Frog” recently earned three Academy Award nominations, including the highly coveted Best Animated Feature.

The film’s other two nominations are for Best Original Song, specifically “Almost There” and “Down in New Orleans” both written and composed by perennial Disney collaborator Randy Newman.

John Lasseter, chief creative officer at both Disney and Pixar, says on the nominations, "We're proud that 'The Princess and the Frog,' our latest hand-drawn animated feature from Disney, has been recognized in the best animated feature film and best song categories. With its fantastic animation, original characters, memorable music and beautiful artistry, it ranks along with the studio's very best efforts."

“The Princess and the Frog” serves up a joyous gumbo of adventurous storytelling, captivating characters, offbeat comedy and memorable music in musical comedy set in the great city of New Orleans.

From the creators of “The Little Mermaid” and “Aladdin” comes a modern twist on a classic tale, featuring a beautiful girl named Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), a frog prince who desperately wants to be human again, and a fateful kiss that leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana. “The Princess and the Frog” marks the return to hand-drawn animation from the revered team of John Musker and Ron Clements, with music by Oscar®-winning composer Randy Newman.


Everyone knows the story in which a princess finds true love by kissing a frog that magically turns into her handsome prince. In this telling of the story, the girl still kisses a frog, but the result is quite different; it’s only one of dozens of surprises in this mix of wacky humor, thrills, melody and emotion. Love eventually finds a way—between a prince and a princess…between frogs, perhaps…or maybe between a firefly and the object of his affection. But it’s clear that the most important details lie well beneath the skin. The film features Disney’s newest princess, its next great fairy tale and the Studio’s return to the Disney musical, reminiscent of classics like “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Lion King” and “Aladdin.”

“The Princess and the Frog” is distributed locally by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures International.
