When the free-spirited, jazz-loving Prince Naveen of Maldonia comes to town a deal with a shady voodoo doctor goes bad and the once suave royal is turned into a frog. In a desperate attempt to be human again, a favor in exchange for a fateful kiss on the lips from the beautiful girl, Tiana, takes an unexpected turn and leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana to the banks of the almighty Mississippi and back in time for Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
An unforgettable tale filled with music, humor and heart where two frogs—along with the help of a 200-year-old voodoo priestess, a love-sick Cajun firefly, and a trumpetplaying alligator—discover that what they want isnt as important as what they need.
- I suppose you want a kiss?
- Kissing would be nice, yes.
- I am Prince Naveen.
- I'm not done yet.
- I was cursed by a dastardly witch doctor. One minute I am a prince, charming and handsome, cutting a rug. And then the next thing I know, oh, I am tripping over these.
Everyone thinks they know the story of princess and the frog.
- You must kiss me.
- Excuse me?
- Please, princess, it would make me human again.
- Just one kiss?
- Unless you beg for more.
But no one knows what happened after the kiss... until now.
- How did you get way up there? And how did I get way down here and all this....... aaaah!
This holiday season, in the tradition of Walt Disney's most beloved classics, comes the story behind the most magical kiss the world has ever known.
- They call me good.

- Come, we pucker. That's new
YOU WANT A KISS= Notice that the final T in the verb WANT is not pronounced, so WANT A rounds /wɒnə/. This is because in American English, when the T goes after the N it may disappear.
KISSING- When a verb is the subject of a sentence it goes in the –ING form.
I'M NOT DONE= I haven't finished.
CURSED= /kɜ:st/ To curse someone is to bring evil and misfortune on someone by using black magic or a religious force.
DASTARDLY= Cowardly and malicious.
WITCH DOCTOR= A sorcerer, prophet, or shamanistic healer, especially among African peoples.
ONE MINUTE... AND THEN...= We use this to express that two things happen very quickly, one after the other.
CUTTING A RUG= (old fashioned slang) dancing.
I AM TRIPPING OVER THESE [legs]= To trip is to stumble and/or fall. If you trip over something, you hit it while walking and it makes you lose balance.
EXCUSE ME?= We say this when we are shocked or surprised about what someone said.
UNLESS= If not.
BEG= To ask for something with a supplication.
WAY UP= The word WAY is often used to emphasize (= very, very). So way up means very very high.
PUCKER= To pucker is to put your lips in position for giving a kiss, so "come, we pucker" means here "let's kiss".
