Peyton loves watching princess movies. From the time she was little, she has loved The Swan Princess. I feel like that is pretty standard for children. Princesses, dinosaurs, and superheroes seem to the staples in every preschooler’s world. The Swan Princess has been around for 25 years and in celebration of turning 25 they are releasing a new chapter to their story PLUS your little can now dress up like the Swan Princess!
The Swan Princess Kingdom of Music is the newest chapter in the series. It arrived on DVD and digital this summer and children have been watching it on repeat since it dropped. Trust me, if you have a little that is obsessed this was downloaded the second it came out. Mom and dad can probably re-enact most scenes by now.
For those that are unfamiliar with The Swan Princess, I’ll give you a little backstory. The Swan Princess is a magical, musical animated adventure based on the classic fairy tale “Swan Lake”. The Swan Princess has won awards from the Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence and the Parents’ Choice Award. The main character Odette is a beautiful princess, who is transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s spell. Held captive at an enchanted lake, she befriends Jean-Bob the frog, Speed the turtle and Puffin the bird. Despite their struggle to keep the princess safe, these good-natured creatures can do nothing about the sorcerer’s spell, which can only be broken by a vow of everlasting love.
The 25 anniversary Blu-ray release includes an all-new featurette entitled “A Look Back, Tease Ahead,” plus a variety of additional archival features.
In the newest film in the series, THE SWAN PRINCESS: KINGDOM OF MUSIC, our favorite princesses are back in an all-new feature-length musical adventure. Princess Odette is hosting a music competition to celebrate Princess Alise’s birthday – the winner will sing at her grand birthday ball! Prince Li of Cathay has entered, but his sister Princess Mei Li has stowed away on his ship to seek help from Odette and Derek for Chen, who has been cursed to live as a dragon. Lucas and Alise are reunited but Prince Li’s arrival makes Alise doubt her feelings. While Li and Lucas fight for Alise’s heart, Derek and Odette try to help Mei Li and Chen break the curse. Who will win the music festival and will Chen ever be free from his curse?
Included with the Kingdom of Music DVD are interactive sing-alongs featuring two all-new toe-tapping tunes from the film and a behind-the-scenes featurette that explores how the world and characters of the film were brought to life.
THE SWAN PRINCESS has a runtime of approximately 90 minutes. THE SWAN PRINCESS: KINGDOM OF MUSIC has a runtime of approximately 83 minutes. Both films are rated G.
And the best part…….now your little one can dress up and become The Swan Princess!! My little one is loving her new The Swan Princess dress and tiara. She literally wears it every single day. I found the costume to fit true to size and seems to wear well. Skylar rushes home from daycare and puts it on for the night and she wears it when we are running errands. She just loves wearing this dress and would sleep in it if we let her. If your little one wants to dress up like Odette, The Swan Princess for Halloween or just for every day you can order your very own online!
