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.
10. Check out his villain song!
11. And the music, written by Oscar-Award Winning Randy Newman.
He’s also behind the music of Toy Story, Monsters Inc., A Bug’s Life, and Cars!
13. That moment your heart broke.
We’re still not over it!
