The Princess and the Frog - Musker & Clements (2009)

 
A truly old-fashioned Disney princess-story (Are those real drawings??!), politically correct with a hard-working, black heroine, poetically set in 1920s New Orleans; fanciful architecture, jazz music, black magic and yummy food.
 
Of course, Disney political correctness only goes so far - There is no racial segregation (ho? What happened there??), the heroine's friend is silly, therefore ugly, and for all its modernity, the concept of a racially mixed couple is apparently still unthinkable.
 
I'm not sure this is really suitable for young children?
