When 'The Princess and the Frog' came out last December, there was a huge marketing push to have the studio's first African-American princess tale connect with audiences and perform at the box office.

But while the reviews were overwhelmingly positive, the cast stellar (Anika Noni Rose, Keith David, John Goodman, Terrence Howard and Queen of All Media Oprah Winfrey) and the music Jazz-Age catchy, the movie itself didn't conjure any box office magic.

That's a shame, because 'Princess,' which is available on DVD now, is a fantastic pick for young children, especially girls.
