Thomas Kinkade painted this Disney image based on Disney's newest film, "The Princess and the Frog". His painting is the first image in the NEW Disney Discoveries Collection. "The Princess and the Frog" is NOT a part of the Disney Dreams Collection. Those customers who have been collecting the previous releases in the Disney Dreams Collection in the same Certificate # will NOT have a # reserved for this release. Instead, a continuity program will begin with this first release in the new series. Customers who purchase this first image, will have the same certificate number reserved for them with the second release in the Disney Discoveries Collection.
"I was very excited to be honored by the Disney Company by being chosen to do a painting based on this upcoming animated feature." Kinkade stated.
"The Princess and the Frog" is the first ever Disney film to be set in the enchanted city of New Orleans. In this painting, Thom is striving to suggest the look of traditional animation yet maintain the sense of a romantic mood that his work is known for.
Walt Disney started it all with a mouse, and this new film, starts anew with a frog. "The Princess and the Frog" is an original story set in New Orleans during the Jazz Age (1920's). Without disclosing important story details, "The Princess and the Frog" is about Tiana, a young African-American woman who was inspired by her mother, Eudora and her father James. Tiana has big dreams of opening her own restaurant. Despite her determination, skill and talent, a number of obstacles are making her dream increasingly impossible.
A wonderful world of characters come into the story to make "The Princess and the Frog" another timeless gem from the amazing studio of Disney.
