This picture could be anything. If Disney’s entire catalog could be compressed into one image, it would be this one. The Princess and The Frog was not only a way of returning to the traditional roots of the company, it was also a way of paying homage to the 48 films that preceded it.
There are so many shout-outs and throw-backs to the Disney canon, it would be impossible to list them all.
Here are just a few-
- Pinocchio: wishing on a star
- Peter Pan: two stars shining together
- The Lion King: stars are fireflies trapped in the sky
- Robin Hood and The Jungle Book: Mama Odee’s snake
- Fantasia: Dr Facilier summoning the shadows can be compared to Night on Bald Mountain. Also, during ‘Evangeline’, the light-up lilypads is similar to the Nutcracker sequence.
- Lady and the Tramp, The Aristocats, Robin Hood: Tiana’s eyes sparkle during the Evangeline sequence, in a similar fashion to Lady, Duchess, and Maid Marian
- Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast: When Charlotte dances with faux-Naveen, part of the sequence uses the same animation from Sleeping Beauty, which was previously repeated in Beauty and the Beast
- Cinderella: Charlotte ballgown is based off of concept art for one of Cinderella’s dresses
- The Little Mermaid, Aladdin: King Triton appears in one of the Mardi Gras floats. So do Aladdin and Jafar, and the palace in Agrabah.
- Aladdin: The magic carpet can be seen briefly at one point, and the genie’s lamp is in Mama Odee’s hut
- The Sword in the Stone: Louis plops some seaweed on his head and pulls it around his face just like Madame Mim
- The Little Mermaid: Charlotte and Naveen’s wedding bears a striking resemblance to Eric and Vanessa’s
