Though I am admittedly not the biggest fan of Disney films, I am definitely a fan of free tickets, free popcorn and afterparties. A screening of Princess and the Frog, the other night at New York’s legendary Ziegfeld theater was no exception. The movie is allegedly the true story of the Princess and the Frog, the famous fairy tale where the Princess kisses a frog and he turns into a prince. This story, set in New Orleans, had a little more Oprah, creole food, voodoo and fat people involved. Still the movie was cute – if you like that sort of thing. The afterparty, held at another famous New York landmark – the Roseland Ballroom – spared no expense to be a wonderland for children. There were famous Disney princesses (such as Sleeping Beauty, Belle from Beauty and the Beast, Snow White and the chick from Aladdin) to take pictures with very excited children, there was a Disney memorabilia hall of fame and there were all kinds of arts and crafts for children and children who never grew up to make.
The film opens later this month.
