* 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]]
* ArtisticLicenseBiology:
** The alligators that attack Tiana and Naveen are depicted with interlocking teeth like crocodiles. It gets jarring in that Louis has his lower teeth hidden when he closes his mouth, like a real alligator.

* GenreSavvy:
** Tiana, Charlotte, and Naveen are all familiar with the fairy tale in question, with the girls willing to try kissing the frog to solve the problem.
** Facilier knows enough about a DealWithTheDevil to be ''very'' worried about what will happen if he fails to please the shadow demons. The only one who could harm his friends (besides Mama Odie) was [[spoiler:Ray]]. Instead of gloating, he [[spoiler:takes care to kill him on screen.]]

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/SherlockHolmes2009''. 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, with Tangled doubling up ''Frog'''s box office receipts; the studio took the same approach with ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', formerly ''The Snow Queen'', and was set to repeat the trick with the 2018 ''Jack And The Beanstalk'' adaptation ''Gigantic''... at least until ''Gigantic'' was cancelled.). However, Tiana being an official Franchise/DisneyPrincess solidified that the film would be a major money-earner through merchandise and the parks.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbitionIsEvil: Played with. Facilier is motivated by a desire for power, and Lawrence wants to take Naveen's place as a prince after being shoved around so much, and they're the bad guys. However, Tiana is ''extremely'' ambitious -- her main goal is to own her own business, and she spends most of the film working her ass off to get it, and while her status as a {{Workaholic}} is presented negatively, the fact that she's ambitious in itself is not. (Basically, her goal and dedication are admirable, but she's clearly stretching herself too thin and could do to relax a little.) It's noteworthy that Facilier and Lawrence basically want power for its own sake and would hurt people to get it, whereas Tiana wants her own restaurant because she loves cooking and to honor her late father, and she'd never harm someone else to get what she wants.

** Facilier's "job" appears to be a bokor, a hired intermediary between humans and loa.

* TheBechdelTest: A pass! The song "Almost There" is about the restaurant. While Tiana's mother does not sing, her participation as a named character who kicks off the 'conversation' (mostly by telling Tiana that all she does is work) still counts.

** When they're frogs, Tiana is smaller than Naveen, more or less proportional to human males and females. In most real-life frog species, the female is larger than the male.
