Oprah Winfrey Set to Lend Voice to Disney Film
She has spoken to the masses on her daily talk-show for decades, and now Oprah Winfrey is set to lend her famous voice to an upcoming Disney animated film!
The talk-show icon has been added to the cast of Disney's, "The Princess and the Frog," says The Hollywood Reporter.
John Lasseter, who holds the chief creative office at Pixar and Walt Disney Animation, announced Wednesday that Oprah will voice the role of Eudora, the main character's mother.
The film, which takes place in the French Quarter of New Orleans, is slated for a late 2009 release, says the paper.
Winfrey has previously voiced other animated films, most recently for "Bee Movie."
