As reported yesterday on All Things Mouse, Princess Tiana made her premiere in the Magic Kingdom of Walt Disney World today. The musical affair known as Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee takes place on the Liberty Belle riverboat in Frontierland.
In a unique entrance, Tiana and her party appear from beside the Diamond Horseshoe and dance and sing their way to the Liberty Belle. Once aboard, the music is almost non-stop with numbers such as “Gonna Take You There,” “Almost There” and “When We’re Human.”
After the show is over, the Liberty Belle steams off around the corner and guests are left tapping their toes! Take a few moments and watch the production below. (Thanks to AttractionsMagazine.com for providing the video)
Tiana, of course, is based on a character from the upcoming Disney animated film, The Princess and the Frog. It is due out in theaters on December 11th and features the voice talents of John Goodman, Keith David, Terrence Howard, Angela Bassett and Oprah Winfrey, just to name a few.
If this new musical from Disney World is any indication, it should be a very entertaining movie.
