Big congratulations to The Princess and the Frog
for rocking the number one spot at the box office this weekend with over 25 million. According to Hollywood.com, Princess set a record for the "biggest debut for an animated film in December." The screen life will last throughout the holiday season so hopefully the Disney flick will reach the 100 million mark.
Here is a review of The Princess and the Frog
and an interview with the princess herself, Anika Noni Rose
In related news, Rose had a hot battle for the role of Tiana. According to The View
, where Rose appeared this past Friday, the Tony winner beat out heavyweights like Alicia Keys
, Tyra Banks
(hmmmm...), Beyonce Knowles
and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson
How do you think the other four would've worked as Disney's first African-American princess?
