Oprah Winfrey will star in a Disney movie next year, but you'll never see her.

The talk show host will be a character voice in "The Princess and the Frog", which is written and directed by the same guys who did "The Little Mermaid" and "Aladdin".

She'll play the mother of the main character. The movie is a return to hand-drawn animation in the same style as Disney's early movies. But it's also cutting edge because it features Disney's first black princess.

Disney is the parent company of abc30.
