Anika Noni Rose is celebrating with fans over the news that Tiana, her beloved character from Disney's 2009 animated film "The Princess and the Frog," is coming to Disney+ as an animated series.
Prior to the announcement on Dec. 10, Rose told ABC Audio she'd love to see her character come back in a "second cartoon."
"I want ... to see who she becomes," the 48-year-old actress said. "She's an amazing character. And she spoke to a lot of people and she continues to do so, which is a great honor to me."
Although Rose said "yes" to lending her voice to her iconic character again, the "Dreamgirls" star does have a few thoughts on Tiana's next chapter.
"She clearly wouldn't be in 2020," Rose said with a laugh. "But I would want to see where she goes now that she opened her restaurant and she's gotten her dream and she is a princess. And Naveen found a way by the end of the movie to recognize what was important in his life and make some changes in there."
Rose added that there are also a lot of questions to be answered.
"How do they go forward? What do they do? How do they meld those worlds?" she pondered. "What is life like in New Orleans? What is life in Maldonia? And how do they continue to invite that magic that they found when they were transformed into their lives?"
"I would love to see all of that," Rose continued.
While she poses some valid questions, it may take a while for them to be answered.
"Tiana," which is expected to feature original music and bring back some of the original movie's main characters, is set to launch sometime in 2022.
