The production was originally called ‘The Frog Princess’. But the critics didn’t like the title and ideas (including names and professions of characters). In 2007, the show was changed. O. Winfrey became a technical consultant for the production and the voice of the main heroine’s mother. The leading voice was also given to black actress – A. N. Rose. In 2009, in November, there was a limited display, taking place in New York and LA. Actual release of the musical happened in December. It immediately became successful. The staging obtained 3 nominations for Academy Awards – first for Best Animated Feature and other two for the Original Song. Many critics call this film a revival of Disney. There are also those, who are not content with the choice of the place of action, as there was a hurricane, which had taken lives of many black people. And the main character's black as well.
