Disney superwoman Princess and Frog

Five decades after the civil human rights movement - so debatably 50 years too late - Disney has lastly made a cartoon with an Afro-American superwoman. Welcome to the contemporary world, guys.

Tiana (Anika Noni Rose) is a waitress with a burning goal to govern America. Oh, all right, that's too much for any Disney superwoman to want. She'll settle for opening her own cabaret restaurant.

Her affectionate father (Terrence Howard), turn-of-the-century America’s answer to Ainsley Harriott, gets himself killed in the Great War. Her mother (Oprah Winfrey), a seamstress, thinks Tiana should dedicate herself to finding her Prince Charming.
