** Lottie's true character gets foreshadowed very early. First, when she hires Tiana to bake beignets for her at the party, she doesn't haggle over the price. When the table is knocked over, Lottie doesn't get mad at ''all'' and is more concerned about whether or not Tiana's okay. This shows that she is a SpoiledSweet.

** Charlotte shrieks "Cheese and crackers!" at one point. This is well known among more prudish folk as a way of saying "Jesus Christ!" Yep. We took the Lord's name in vain in a ''Disney'' movie.

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, with Tangled 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 ''Gigantic''). However, Tiana being an official Franchise/DisneyPrincess solidified that the film would be a major money-earner through merchandise and the parks.
