The Princess and the Frog

When Wikipedia says that this movie is based loosely on ED Baker's book, they weren't kidding. The New Orleans setting was totally different from the book, although it was interesting. But, I HATED the voodoo. I didn't realize that was in there, and I don't think I would have taken the kids if I'd known.

Zoie liked it. Jonas didn't like it. Zoie asked me what my favorite part was, and I said "When it was over." That's due to the voodoo, which she didn't quite get. The book had a witch. She was a friendly witch, and the magic wasn't portrayed as Satanic. The Shadow Man in this movie was working with evil spirits. That was just a bit much for me in a kids' show.

I had seen stuff about the voodoo and was wondering about it. Not too comfortable with it either.
