NEW ORLEANS—An exhibit with original artwork from the Walt Disney Studio opened this week at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
Besides artwork from popular tales such as "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty," the exhibit also includes pieces from the upcoming movie, "The Princess and the Frog."
"The Princess and the Frog" is a musical comedy about a free-spirited, jazz-loving prince whose encounter with a witch doctor goes bad, and the prince is turned into a frog.
The prince's attempt to become human again - through a favor in exchange for a fateful kiss on the lips from the beautiful girl - takes an unexpected turn and leads the prince and girl on an adventure through New Orleans and the bayous of Louisiana.
The film, from the creators of "The Little Mermaid" and "Aladdin," debuts in New York and Los Angeles on Nov. 25 and opens nationwide Dec. 11.
The Disney exhibit, called "Dreams Come True: Art of the Classic Fairy Tales from the Walt Disney Studio," will remain at NOMA through March 14. In all, the exhibit includes more than 600 original artworks that brought legendary fairy tales to the screen.
