The Princess and the Frog

Disney does it again.Take a classic fairy tale, give it compelling visual appeal, put it together with a Randy Newman score and – viola! – princess is born in The Princess and the Frog.

I took the kids to see this movie today (let’s just say that with all the holiday excitement and sugar consumption, we really needed to get out of the house) and they enjoyed it.

The story gist is different than you might remember the story. In this rendition, the kiss doesn’t turn the frog back into a prince; it turns the girl (who wasn’t a “real” princess) into a frog. This sends this workaholic waitress and a selfish, penniless prince immediately off on an adventure involving voodoo, soul-searching, a delusional fire fly, a wanna-be jazz musician alligator, and more.If you have any princesses in your home, as I do, they’ll love the story.

Like all the Disney flicks before it, Princess and the Frog is a great movie to watch on a Runco flat panel at home (where you are likely to watch the Blu-Ray or DVD over-and-over-and-over again). The Runco LCD line, the Crystal Series™, featuring OPAL™ technology will allow the dark shadows of Doctor Facilier or the Bayou at night to strike the right kind of fear, while maintaining the brightness of the firefly parade and the fairly-tale mansion architecture of the Garden District of New Orleans – even in a bright family room environment in your home.

If you have a light-controlled basement theater or playroom, your family will love to watch it on a Runco plasma display, from the CinemaWall™ or PlasmaWall™ series, which has really rich blacks which will help illuminate the dark corners of Charlotte’s room or Mama Odie’s tree house boat (I know it sounds strange, but that is what it is).As an emissive display technology will make the lights of the French Quarter during the Mardi Gras parade sparkle!

Special props to Anika Noni Rose who voiced the main character, Tiana and did an awesome job.Bruno Campos, who you may recognize from bit parts on a lot of the most popular television shows, gives voice to the only Disney prince besides the Beast to ever have a story line of his own. And, who can forget Oprah Winfrey as Tiana’s mother Eudora.
