The Sound of The Princess and the Frog

Walt Disney Animation Studio returns to their tradition of handdrawn animation in "The Princess and the Frog". Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker of successful 2D Disney films "The Little Mermaid", "Aladdin", and "Hercules".

In this profile we talk with Sound Re-Recording Mixer David Fluhr, Sound Re-Recording Mixer Dean Zupancic, Original Dialogue Mixer Doc Kane, Original Dialogue Mixer Gabe Guy, and Supervising Sound Editor Odin Benitez.


When the free-spirited, jazz-loving Prince Naveen of Maldonia (Bruno Campos) comes to town, a deal with a shady voodoo doctor goes bad and the once suave royal is turned into a frog. In a desperate attempt to be human again, a favor in exchange for a fateful kiss on the lips from the beautiful girl, Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), takes an unexpected turn and leads them both on a hilarious adventure through the mystical bayous of Louisiana to the banks of the almighty Mississippi and back in time for Mardi Gras in New Orleans. An unforgettable tale filled with music, humor and heart where two frogs—along with the help of a 197-year-old voodoo priestess, a love-sick Cajun firefly, and a trumpet-playing alligator—discover that what they want isn’t as important as what they need.
