Anika Noni Rose Speaks Out On The White-Washing Of Princess Tiana



Disney don’ messed up now — but, thankfully, Anika None Rose saves the day!

Last month, the Mouse House revealed the trailer for Wreck-It Ralph 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, which included a lighter, more Euro-centric version of our beloved Princess Tiana. Twitter wasn’t having it…

Although it seemed as though Rose was staying silent on the situation, she was actually effecting change by meeting with Disney behind closed doors and advocating for Tiana to remain the same.

In a lengthy Instagram message, the award-winning actress revealed that Disney explained to her why Tiana looked so different, but more importantly, they committed to rectifying the situation.
