LADIES SUPPORTIN’ LADIES.
There are a lot of things that I love that The Princess and the Frog did (finally a black princess! finally a REAL STILL-ALIVE MOM!) but my favorite is always Tiana and Charlotte and their amazing friendship. Tiana loves her so dearly and Charlotte is so supportive and caring of Tiana! BEST FOREVER.
Seriously, look at those top two gifs and IF YOU DON’T FEEL ALL THE FEELINGS, I don’t know what to even do.
For once I love that there is a rich friend who isn’t stuck up and is very caring.
And the best part is, they COULD have made Charlotte a spoiled bitchy brat but they didn’t. I mean yes, Charlotte WAS spoiled, but when it came down to it, she was always supportive of Tiana. Even in the end when she could have been jealous about her getting a prince something she’s wanted her whole life, it was never an issue.
I remember watching the film thinking it was going to be an issue, that the subplot in the movie would be Charlotte plotting against Tiana or something for having (or in the process of getting) what she always wanted, a fairy tale ending. But it never was and I’m so happy for that. They were always best friends first and foremost, and Charlotte was never condescending or anything towards Tiana, just supporting, loving, and caring. Same for Tiana for her.
That was my favorite thing about this movie, too!
New meaning to the term “culling fork” — same as the old one.
