Disney’s first black princess leads to race row
Originally called The Frog Princess, its heroine was to be a chambermaid called Maddy working for a spoilt white debutante in 1920s New Orleans.
But it sparked a backlash from critics who claimed it reinforced prejudice and demeaned black people.
As a result the title of the musical, which has yet to be released, was changed to The Princess and The Frog and the princess will now be called Tiana.
