The Princess and the Frog - Giveaway

Giveaway Closed Congratulations to CocoaMommy!


On the weekend when Disney's Princess and the Frog was released, my son, my girlfriend and her son all went to the theater to see the film. This film was making history, the first African-American princess in a Disney animated film, we had to see it. Especially given all of the conversation about the matter ranging from - "why did it take so long?" to "why doesn't she have an African-American prince?" and "Why is the princess a frog for most of the film?" And let's not forget the controversy over the dialect of the firefly. I also had a serious personal interest in the film because when I attended the first African-American mom bloggers mixer at Walt Disney World, it became very clear that the executives wanted our perspectives about the upcoming film and worked diligently to "get it right."

When I went to see the film I had an open mind. I knew heavy hitters like Oprah Winfrey had worked on the advisory panel for the film and I truly trusted that this would not be a negative protrayal of African-American culture. I was not disappointed. I totally enjoyed the musical score and although I have never traveled to New Orleans, the music and the scenery left me with the feeling that I'd visited this historic city.

The voices of Anika Noni Rose, Oprah Winfrey, Keith David, Terrance Howard and John Goodman brought the film to life and I was highly entertained. My son loved the film too and continued to ask about the Princess long after it was over. The DVD has been released and we are now proud owners of the DVD combo pack that includes a Blu-Ray disc, regular DVD and one for travel. There is also a code that can be used to download the film right to your computer! I was given my copy but I've also been given one so that I can share the love with you! I hope that you enjoy the movie as much as my family and I do.

I want to share the film with my 6 year old daughter and 5 year old son.

My daughter was excited when it came out because she said, "She has skin like me."

It is funny because we are caucasian but she has dark skin... compared to her pale skinned brother and the rest of us (probably that eastern european in her genes that came out).

Gina @ MoneywiseMoms said...

We saw it opening weekend, and I was almost in tears just loving how STRONG a woman she is, not some girl waiting for a man to save her. I was a little disappointed that she didn't achieve her dream without her husband's help, but we had lots to talk about with our 6yo son and 3yo daughters that was much more positive than the typical Disney movies.

Thanks for the chance to win!

Houseonahillorg said...

I will share this w/ my 14yr old son who faked me out opening weekend, LOL. He promised and then declined so I KNOW he might watch it where "no one can see" - the comfort of our home! Ahhh, teens ...

YOU MUST visit NOLA!

I was very glad Disney made this movie and am looking forward to sharing it with my son and daughter. They're so lucky to be growing up in a time when it isn't so uncommon anymore to see diversity in their toys, games & cartoons.
