Some fellow Indie Authors and I were chatting about our favorite Disney Heroes. We each chose one of our favorites and are sharing our thoughts on what makes them a hero. Enjoy.The Blog Tour featuring Disney Hero’s!

"The real hero is always a hero by mistake; he dreams of being an honest coward like everybody else." Umberto Eco
Madame Odie, the voodoo priestess of the bayou, wisely proclaims to Tiana and Naveen (while they are frogs) that they need to dig a little deeper and see what they need, not what they want. They want to be human again, but that is not what they need. While we do not get this wisdom until later in the film it is the guiding principle of the film and self-exploration for Naveen as the hero.

Yes, Naveen gets the girl and they turn back into humans again. As Disney would tell you they lived happily ever after, but I’m sure lovers quarrels occurred as they would in any healthy relationship. Naveen became a hero worthy of his lady loves affection.
