Proof That “The Princess And The Frog” Is One Of The Most Underrated Disney Movies Ever

Sure, there was a lot of controversy over it, but this movie is fantastic — and not just because Tiana is Disney’s first African American princess.

1. Tiana was a hard worker — she taught us you have to work hard to reach your dreams.

2. And yet she did it all with a smile.

Not to mention the touch of sass!

3. Her best friend, Lottie, was truly the best.

Yes, even despite her self-centered behavior. She’d still do anything for Tiana.

4. Tiana was a daddy’s girl — and she listened to him!

Unlike some Disney princesses (looking at you, Ariel!)

5. Mama Odie was a fantastic character!

And based on the real life Coleen Salley!

6. Do you need more proof than this?

7. Tiana actually had a realistic reaction to a frog suddenly talking to her.

And asking for a kiss.

8. The villain was pretty awesome.

16. But most of all, Naveen was a real guy.

21. Even down to the gooey center.
