This is Mama Odie, the "good" voodoo priestess of the bayou. She is wise. We know this because her head is big, she is old, and she is wearing white.

This is Louie, a trumpet-playing alligator whom Tiana befriends. One can only guess his last name is Armstrong.

This is Facilier, the "evil" voodoo magician. We know he is bad because he is wearing black. Also: Good guys don't show off their clavicles (see: Naveen). Plus, there's a skull on his hat.


And here's the trailer again, just for fun, and in case you haven't seen the dentally-challenged firefly in action.

So I'll probably actually really enjoy this movie, but right now I'm thinking this one deals in cheap, clichéd stereotypes even more than some other Disney movies, which are usually pretty bad for that (Pocahontas....).

Also, when will us New Orleanians ever escape the voodoo mythology? And there never will be as cool a jazzy Yat alligator as the one from "All Dogs Go to Heaven." That childhood memory is inviolate.
