Oprah Gets Animated
The talk-show queen will portray a real queen in Disney's new princess flick, due out in 2009. It's called The Princess and the Frog, and it's the story of Princess Tiana, Disneys' first black princess. She lives in New Orleans and must kiss a few frogs before finding her prince. Oprah will voice Tiana's mother, Eudora. This isn't the Big O's first foray into animated flicks ? she was Judge Bumbleton in Bee Movie, too. Anika Noni Rose will play Princess Tiana. Let's just hope she doesn't meet the same fate as a lot of other moms in the Disney canon ? think Bambi, Dumbo, Ariel's Beginning?
