first black princess fairytale

March 19, 2009

Tiana is paired with a white prince called Naveen in the film ‘The Princess and the Frog’, which is slated for release in December this year.

Disney films, who have brought alive many fairytale romances on screen with animated films like “Snow White” and ‘Beauty and the Beast’, will pair the black princess with a white prince for an inter-racial romance.

While some have hailed Disney’s decision as a reflection of melting pot America, others say the company is sending out a mixed message, the ‘Daily Mail’ reported online.

But the pairing has already run into controversy with many bloggers raising questions over the white prince.
