Oprah Joins Disney’s Princess and the Frog


At today’s day-long Disney press event in Hollywood, the studio announced Oprah Winfrey will voice Eudora in the animated feature film The Princess and the Frog. Her role finds her playing the mother of the princess.

A musical set in the greatest city of them all, New Orleans, The Princess and the Frog marks Disney’s return to the timeless art form of traditional animation. The film teams Ron Clements and John Musker, creators of The Little Mermaid and Aladdin, with Oscar-winning composer Randy Newman to tell the most beautiful love story ever told…with frogs, voodoo, and a singing alligator.

The film opens December 25, 2009.
