Why We Need a ‘Princess and the Frog’ Remake

With so many Disney remakes out and about in the world and loosed upon Hollywood cinema, there is one Disney film that truly needs to be seen and witnessed on the big screen. That film, in particular, is The Princess and the Frog The movie saw a hard-working and determined young African American woman named Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) who works night and day to save up enough money to open her dream restaurant. Later, she comes across a prince named Naveen (Bruno Campos) who gets transformed into a frog by the Shadow Man/Dr. Facilier (Keith David) with an evil plot to garner power in New Orleans.  The film was released in 2009 and much of the Disney fanbase has not said much about it. A live-action remake has yet to be greenlit by the studio. However, that conversation needs to be brought up and thoroughly discussed.  Here is why Disney needs to start development on a live-action Princess and the Frog film.  Like with all things, if the cast doesn't work, chances are that the movie won’t work. The perfect cast, if chosen correctly, could make this film perfect. The dream casting could possibly come to Keke Palmer as Tiana. She would make the obvious choice since she has a background in singing—she played Cinderella in her Broadway debut. The actress has a certain tenacity and jovial spirit that the movie needs to keep its fanbase on its side.
