While some fans are gearing up for the Splash Mountain decoration overhaul centered on the beloved fantasy musical, the world of The Princess and the Frog is coming back to audiences even sooner as a sequel series entitled Tiana is currently in development for Disney+!
Tiana, coming to the streamer in 2023, is a long-form musical-comedy series featuring the extraordinary entrepreneur who’s now princess of the kingdom of Maldonia. The all-new adventure explores both Maldonia and Tiana’s beloved hometown, New Orleans.
