From the director of "The Fox And The Hound" comes The Swan Princess, a magical, musical animated adventure based on the classic fairy tale "Swan Lake" that captured the hearts of audiences around the world! The winner of the Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence and the Parents' Choice Award, it's the heartwarming story of the beautiful princess Odette, 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. Universally cheered and revered, The Swan Princess is bursting with color, dazzling animation, beautiful music and features the vocal talents of Jack Palance, John Cleese, Steven Wright and Sandy Duncan! It's an exciting adventure you'll want to relive again and again!

Classic story is less scary than most animated fairy tales.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Swan Princess is less scary than most animated fairy tales, though it does contain some of the typical action scenes common to these films. In most instances, these sequences are brief and do not depict injury or death. There's an evil enchanter, a flying beast, some fiery backgrounds, sounds of thunder and lightning. A scene in which the royal family's carriage is attacked is cut short before the princess is taken and the king wounded. King William delivers an important message to the prince, who comes to his aid, then simply disappears from the film. The longest "battle" is a paintball practice exercise, played entirely for humor. The final conflict takes place between the prince and the enchanter, who has turned himself into the flying creature. Princess Odette is portrayed with modern sensibilities, and is greatly offended when she believes the Prince loves her only for her beauty.
