Being black I do not see a single issue with Princess and the Frog and actually it is one of my favorite movies being able to somewhat relate to the mannerism and culture showcased in the movie. On top of that, all my black friends (male and female) love the movie as well, so I do not understand how there are people still not happy that Disney finally made an African-American princess embraced in her Louisianan life style and on top of that as independent as ever by wanting to own her own restaurant.

I saw the Lion King when I was four years old. I cried when Simba's father died because it was sad, but it didn't traumatize me or do me any psychological harm. Nor did it to my brothers.

Barbaric? The entire world was barbaric back during ancient history. I'm middle eastern and don't see how this is at all offensive.
