Princess and the Frog Movie, Appropriate for 3-Yr-old?

I see the Princess and the Frog movie has made it to the $2 theater! Is it appropriate for my 3-1/4 year old daughter to see? What kind of scenes will there be that I might have to explain? (for example: Death? Foul language? Violence?) She's been exposed to PBS morning shows and a few other children's movies like Alvin & the Chipmunks. Reviews and/or thoughts are appreciated! Thank you!

"My Princess Boy" and "What Would You Do"...

I have a little girl (two actually) that are 1/2 princess, 1/2 tomboy. My 3 y/o has an iron man mask, pirate costumes, police costumes, as well as princess and fairy costumes. I have no issue with her playing with trucks or trains or cars. I seriously cannot understand why it's so "unheard" of to have boys play house or barbies. How many of you moms would be weirded out if your boy would be intersested in this kind of play? I have no boys yet, but my hubby agrees with me.

She certainly wears pink and has dolls, but we also expose her to Curious George, Elmo, sports etc. We just don't love princess as a role model. My parents are over the top on all things princess, dance, frilly, etc and it is starting to annoy us. She came home with 2 princess...

Toddler "Princess" Reactions

My two year old daughter has pretty strong reactions to getting "yucky" while eating. If she gets yogurt on her finger, she can't eat another bite until it's cleaned off. Same thing for mayo from a sandwich or if some of her cereal drops on her chair in front of her. She just wines and sticks her hand out at me until I clean it up. I've been giving the cue "yucky" to her, and telling her to ask for a napkin to "clean up", but it all seems a bit "princess"y to me. I expect her to get messy when she eats. This melt down in the face of food...
