Disney’s new film “The Princess and the Frog” has sparked a lot of conversation primarily because Tiana, the princess is black. As adults we have plenty to say about the effects of the film, whether it’ll impact young black girls in a positive manner and if it portrays black folks/New Orleans/voodoo objectively.
That’s all well and good, but I think it’s vitally important to hear what someone from the film’s target audience has to say. TH, my fabulous assistant, went on a fieldtrip with several kindergarten and first-grade classes from her school to see the film. She was kind enough to take some time out from her hectic schedule to answer a few questions.
*Please note, TH is five, so her discussion of the film is probably not in sequential order and she probably only remembered the parts she liked. We’re working on those skills.
SH: So I hear you went to see a movie today. What was the name of it again?
TH: The Princess and the Frog! *giggles*
SH: Did you like it?
TH: Oh mommy, it was fabulous and funny and hilarious!
SH: Really? So tell me what happened.
TH: There was a girl and she had a mommy and daddy, just like me!
SH: What was the girl’s name?
SH: What did she look like?
TH: Oh, she was pretty and her face was brown, like me. Read the Post The Princess and the Frog – TH’s 2 Cents
