Did you know?
During the tarot card reading, four cards are based on actual tarot: Prince Naveen's first card - the three of pentacles, which is the card symbolizing constructive energy particularly with money, and Lawrence's first card - the ten of wands, the card of oppression. When the Prince's second card is spun, it shows the prince in front of a tower with no money; The Roman numeral XVI is shown at the top denoting it to be 'The Tower' a card that represents uncontrolled change and loss. Likewise the final card the Prince is shown resembles the Card 0 'The Fool', no need to describe that one.

After Dr. Facilier retrieves the talisman from Tiana he turns her back into a frog and pins her down with his cane. The cane is there but after she grabs the talisman with her tongue the cane disappears and is nowhere to be found.

Towards the end of the movie when Tiana is building her restaurant, the building on the left slides over to the left in the last flash scene.

Tiana is left-handed, but sometimes uses her right hand for writing and kitchen work. For much of European and American history, society considered using the left hand to be sinful or unnatural, so "lefties" often felt compelled to use the right hand in polite company.
