The Princess and the Frog is set in the Louisiana bayous in the early 1920s. All of the action takes place in and around the city of New Orleans. The movie opens with a montage of scenes set in the French Quarter which is the historic center of the city. We see people going about their daily lives enjoying the food music and culture of the city.
One of the main characters Tiana lives in the Tremé neighborhood which is one of the oldest and most famous African American neighborhoods in the country. Tremé is known for its Preservation Hall where you can hear traditional jazz music and its Mardi Gras Indian parades.
Another main character Prince Naveen is from the fictional kingdom of Maldonia which is located somewhere in Europe. Maldonia is a small wealthy country that is famous for its wine.
The action in The Princess and the Frog takes place over the course of a few days. Most of the movie is set at night since that is when all of the magical creatures come out. This is fitting since New Orleans is known as the “City of Night.”
The movie culminates with a huge Mardi Gras parade which is one of the most iconic events in New Orleans. The parade scene is filled with colorful costumes floats and music. This is a fitting end to the movie since it captures the spirit of the city.
