Disney What least favori Disney movie would toi improve?
Have you seen a Disney movie that you not only didn't like but also think it needs improvement? What would you do to fix it?
For me, it's the Princess and the Frog. I found the story somewhat formulaic because some of the scenes and a few characters were too much like past Disney films. (My bro complained that Louis was too much like Puumba and that Naveen looked too much like Eric). Other scenes were bland and the songs lack emotional depth.
What I would to improve the story:
-Tone down The voodoo scenes with the villain. Found him a bit too frightening.
-Give a tiny explanation why Charlotte didn't turn into a frog after kissing Naveen, despite no longer being a princess. I am annoyed that the movie failed to explain that!
-Have a short sequence of Eudora and the LaBouffs looking for Tiana. Surely they must have noticed her absence!
-Focus on the leads' relationships with other characters. I felt that the movie focused way too much on the romance between Tiana/Naveen. We rarely learned about how close Tiana was to her mom and the LaBouffs and what Naveen's relationship with his parents was like. True, we learned a bit of Tiana's relationship with her father but even it doesn't get expanded on. Selling a story on just romance rarely works.
-Explain why would turning Naveen into a frog help Dr. Facilier kill Mr. La Bouff. Wouldn't it make sense to have the real Naveen; rather than Lawrence in disguise; marry Charlotte?
-Have Tiana spend a bit more screen time as a human before turning into a frog. ( some people complained about Tiana becoming a frog but in Disney's defense, the movie was directly based on the Frog Princess; not on the Frog Prince).
-Get a new composer to write songs! I found Randy Newman's songs very disappointing. They weren't as catchy or memorable as the other Disney songs. And this is coming from someone who is a fan of Randy Newman and jazz.
