Maddy in The Frog Princess

Disney announced that its 2009 animated feature The Frog Princess features black princess Maddy. I may be cynical, but I would bet that Disney's decision is still financially motivated. If they were concerned with the racial implications beyond the dollar, then why did it take until 2009? Maddy may be drawn with a different color to her skin, but her body remains the disturbing Disney archetype.
