The trumpet alligator
Louis is one of the important characters of the Disney cartoon The Princess and the Frog”, very freely inspired by the tale “The Frog King” of the Grimm brothers. The Princess And The Frog has the particularity of being the last Disney cartoon made in traditional animation, which had been done for the last time seven years earlier with Lilo And Stitch. (excluding sequels and films released directly on DVD). It tells the story of a young African-American waitress, Tiana, living in 1920s New Orleans. She has dreamed of opening her own restaurant since she was a child and has worked hard to do so. During a costume party organized by a friend, Tiana meets Prince Naveen, who has been transformed into a frog by Doctor Facilier, a voodoo wizard. She agrees to kiss him to break the spell, but it’s actually Tiana who finds herself transformed into a frog. They decide to go to the bayou in the hope of being helped by the voodoo priestess Mama Odie. On the way, they meet a friendly alligator named Louis, who will help them reach their destination faster. Louis is a big fan of jazz and especially of the trumpet, which he plays quite well!
