Anika Nani Rose video interview

Another Disney classic has hit the home entertainment market in the form of The Princess and the Frog. Kids everywhere will memorize lines and emulate a new princess in Tiana. Lucky for us, we got to sit down with the star of the new fairy tale for an enchanted interview.

Anika Nani Rose stars as Tiana -- Disney's first black princess -- in Princess and the Frog, a fabulous animated tale set in jazz-era New Orleans.

Although she is a frog for most of the movie, you may very well recognize her voice as one of the stars in Dreamgirls, which also starred Beyonce and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson.

Anika's a powerhouse of talent, having won a 2004 Tony Award for best performance by a featured actress in a musical for her role in Caroline, or Change.

Above all, we were delighted by the star's candidness on acting, preparing for this role, and seeing herself on screen as a frog.
