What You Need To Know:

THE SWAN PRINCESS: A FAIRYTALE IS BORN is the first of a two-part finale to the Swan Princess franchise on Netflix. In addition to Writer/Director Richard Rich, the movie brings back fan-favorites Yuri Lowenthal to play Prince Derek and Nina Herzog to play Princess Odette. They are about to become King and Queen when Derek’s mother, Queen Uberta, decides to give up the throne. Before this, the story shows Queen Uberta’s 30 year reign, her struggle to find a worthy cause, her skirmishes with a rival, and her noble husband’s tragic fate.

THE SWAN PRINCESS: A FAIRYTALE IS BORN has some funny, heartfelt scenes, but it suffers from a disorganized plot, a pace that’s sometimes slow and inconsistent animation. The movie has a strong moral worldview stressing kindness, compassion, striving for greatness, encouraging other people, and working rather than stealing. However, THE SWAN PRINCESS: A FAIRYTALE IS BORN is marred by politically correct liberal idealism about running a kingdom, a running joke promoting emotional manipulation, and a scene where the princess talks to her dead mother. So, MOVIEGUIDE® advises caution for children.

The movie has a strong moral worldview overall. For example, it stresses kindness, compassion, striving for greatness, encouraging other people, and working rather than stealing.
