Talkshow host to help voice 'Princess'

It’s hard to remember sometimes that Oprah Winfrey really is an actress and not only a talk-show host or media mogul.

She won’t be on screen but her voice will be heard in an upcoming Disney movie. Winfrey will voice the character of Eudora in the hand-drawn animated movie “The Princess and the Frog.”

Endora is the mother of Tiana, the main character. Tiana is being voiced by Anika Noni Rose. “The Prince and the Frog” is set in New Orleans and expected to be released on Christmas of next year.
