Disney is adding its first African-American princess to the Disney Princess franchise. Five weeks after America swore in its first black president, Disney will unveil a doll representing its first African American princess, due to make its official market debut in the fall.
“USA Today” reports Princess Tiana is slated to make her big screen debut later this year in the animated musical “The Princess and the Frog.”
She will be the first princess introduced by Disney since 1998’s Mulan.
The public will get its first look at the Princess Tiana doll today at the American International Toy fair in New York City.
It will be about the same size as a Barbie doll, and will come wearing a blue gown and a tiara.
The Princess Tiana doll, which was created by Mattel, is expected to sell for about ten to 15 dollars.
