One of the strongest parts of this movie it has absolutely fun and fantastic songs.


We had to dig a little deeper to find these fun facts

  1. This is Walt Disney Animation Studio's first musical film in which all of the voice actors do both the speaking and singing parts since Beauty and the Beast (1991).

  2. One notable similarity between Dr. Facilier and Keith David, who provided his voice, is that both have a prominent gap in their front teeth. The animators also incorporated David's expressions and gestures into the character.

  3. Anika Noni Rose (Tiana) requested that Tiana be left-handed, because Rose herself is left-handed.

  4. In the party scene at the start, the sound of the birds is the same as the birds at the wedding of Eric and Vanessa in The Little Mermaid. The flamingos later, use the same cells and animation as the birds in Kiss the Girl in The Little Mermaid.

  5. Oprah Winfrey was originally hired as a technical consultant before being given a voice role in the film.
