Disney gala shows off upcoming movies


Oprah Winfrey will voice the character of Eudora in the hand-drawn Disney-animated movie "The Princess and the Frog," the studio announced Wednesday.

The popular talk show host will play the mother of the main character, Tiana, in the film, which is set in New Orleans and slated for release on Christmas in 2009.

The Pixar and Disney animation studios' chief creative officer, John Lasseter, broke the news at a star-studded event at Kodak Theatre in Hollywood meant to show off the upcoming lineup at The Walt Disney Co.
