The Princess and the Frog is the adorable 2009 Disney movie about Tiana, a young woman from Louisiana who wants nothing more than to open her own restaurant. She wants to follow her dream – the dream she’s had since she was a child and her father was still alive. She’s best friends with a wealthy young woman named Charlotte, who is convinced she’s going to marry herself a prince. Prince Naveen – the wealthy prince coming to a party at Charlotte’s New Orleans home.

She’s going to win him over, and her friend Tiana is going to help her out. Unfortunately, the evil Dr. Facilier turns Prince Naveen into a frog. He kisses Tiana turning her into a frog. Their adventures take them into the swamps of New Orleans, and havoc ensues. What might surprise you about this film, however, is the fact that the cast is really well-known. Who stars in the Princess and the Frog cast, and how do you know those voices?

Anika Noni Rose is Tiana

Anika Noni Rose starred in the hit movie Dreamgirls in 2006, among many other things. She’s a Broadway performer, she’s a movie star, and she’s been nominated for a Tony. She took on the role of Tiana, and she brought it home.

John Goodman is Big Daddy La Bouff

Terrence Howard is James

James is Tiana’s late father, and we don’t need to introduce him either. He’s one of the most famous actors in the world.

At the end of the day, this is a cast of exceptionally talented actors and actresses. They may only use their voices, but they are killing it when they do.
