-->'''Mr. La Bouff:''' All right now, princess, you're gettin' that dress, but that's it. No more Mr. Pushover. Now who wants a puppy?

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The evening star, Venus, is never visible at midnight.

* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: The evening star, Venus, is never visible at midnight.[[labelnote: Some scientific explanation]]Because Venus is between the Earth and the Sun (like Mercury), from the perspective of the Earth this planet can never be more than a 47 degrees away from where the Sun is as seen from the Earth; and being visible at midnight would mean it would be about 90 degrees away from the Sun, which is impossible for Venus. Because of this Venus can only be seen around dusk or dawn - hence why this planet is referred to in culture as "the Evening Star" and "the Morning Star".[[/labelnote]]

* CatchPhrase: Naveen exclaims "Achidanza" when surprised or impressed, [[{{Fictionary}} a Maldonian word meaning "cool"]] according to some of the Disney tie-in books. Fun fact: The word bears a striking resemblance to "accidenti", an Italian interjection that's used more or less in the same way.

* TarotMotifs: When Doctor Facilier reads Naveen and Lawrence's fortunes. [[spoiler:We clearly see TheFool, Three of Pentacles, and the Tower in Naveen's hand, while Lawrence is almost a replica of Ten of Wands]]. And it's not overdone, and [[ShownTheirWork it works!]] Although the [[AncientEgypt Eye of Horus]] on the back of the cards is a bit confusing. You'd think it'd be a bit too late for Facilier to try to get protection from evil.

* CreepyJazzMusic: Dr. Facilier's VillainSong [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZAY-78zhmw "Friends on the Other Side"]]. While it being jazz isn't notable in itself (the film has a jazz-influenced soundtrack), the tempo, minor key, and call-and-response elements make the song much creepier than other songs from the film. What's more, the song seems to be bit of a tribute to ''WesternAnimation/MinnieTheMoocher'', another case of this trope. Facilier looks a bit like Cab Calloway, and the weird dancing and DisneyAcidSequence aspects are reminiscent of some of the old cartoons.

* GirlsNeedRoleModels: It's been stressed that Tiana doesn't need a prince and works to achieve her dreams. Anika Noni Rose pointed out how this is a stark contrast to any of the other Disney {{I Want Song}}s, in that she knows what she wants, she's "Almost There", and she's done it on her own. Her character is best summed up with her line:
-->''"I know exactly where I'm going\\
And gettin' closer and closer everyday!"''

* FreezeFrameBonus: Mama Odie kissing her snake Juju - as if that moment wasn't gross or uncomfortable enough, in a few frames she is clearly ''sucking on his tongue!''

For almost a decade, Disney had been firmly entrenched in the growing 3D/CGI movement (not counting DirectToVideo sequels); a Disney exec announced that ''Princess'' would be a long-overdue return to the animation tradition the company maintained for over fifty years. Randy Newman composed the songs for a film that harkens back to the age of Disney where music played as much a character as the actual cast members themselves. The film is also in large part a love letter to the city of [[TheBigEasy New Orleans]], a town even Creator/WaltDisney himself considered to be the most magical city in the world. The end result was a film that was well-received by both critics and audiences. Unfortunately, it was only a ''solid'' financial success (Disney was hoping for an ''overwhelming'' financial success), coming out in the same crowded holiday season as ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' and ''Film/SherlockHolmes''. To add insult to injury, the critically-panned ''[[Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel]]'' beat it as well, earning more than twice as much; Disney's lukewarm response to this film's take resulted in ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'' getting a title change (originally ''Rapunzel'') and its marketing playing down the traditional fairy-tale aspects (which paid off handsomely, doubling up ''Frog'''s box office receipts; the studio took the same approach with ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', formerly ''The Snow Queen'', and is set to repeat the trick with the 2018 ''Jack And The Beanstalk'' adaptation ''Giants''). However, Tiana being an official Franchise/DisneyPrincess solidified that the film would be a major money-earner through merchandise and the parks.

In 1920s New Orleans, 19-year old waitress Tiana struggles to earn money in order to [[AcceptableFeminineGoals get her own restaurant]] -- a dream she and her dad shared before he passed away. Things seem to be turning around when the handsome prince Naveen comes to town, prompting Tiana's [[SpoiledSweet rich friend Lottie]] to pay her lots of money if Tiana will cater at the party Lottie throws for Naveen. Unfortunately, Lottie is not the only one interested in the egocentrical prince, as an evil voodoo sorcerer named [[BigBad Dr. Facilier]] manages to trick him into a DealWithTheDevil and replaces the prince with his transformed manservant. Naveen is turned into a frog and requires a princess' kiss to lift the spell. Mistaking Tiana for a princess at Lottie's party, he asks her to kiss him. Tiana, disillusioned because her attempt at getting the restaurant failed, reluctantly agrees to kiss Naveen if he pays for her restaurant, but there's a twist -- since she's not a princess, the plan backfires and she's turned into a frog as well! As Tiana and Naveen have [[AllWorkVsAllPlay very different outlooks on life]], they have a hard time cooperating, but they're forced to bond together and embark on a journey through the lush bayou of Louisiana to find the mystical [[FairyGodmother Mama Odie]] who can lift their spell. While they are joined by [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Louis, an alligator jazz enthusiast, and a Cajun firefly named Ray]], Dr. Facilier is hot on their trail, intent on using Naveen's blood for further nefarious purposes.
