Following the Disney Renaissance in the late 1980s and 1990s — which saw Princess Ariel in The Little Mermaid (1989), Princess Belle in Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Princess Jasmine in Aladdin (1992), Disney Princess fans went years without a new Princess to fall in love with. Then, in 2009, Princess Tiana graced movie screens in The Princess and the Frog.

The movie saw a return to the classic style of Disney animation that is seen in beloved classics like the aforementioned Princess movies, plus Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), Cinderella (1953), and more.

The Princess and the Frogwhich will be the new theme of the Splash Mountain log flume rides at both Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort — is set in New Orleans in the 1920s, and follows the adventures of hard-working Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) as she navigates her dream of owning a restaurant in the Crescent City.
