A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Educational Value

Kids learn a lot of indirect information about musical instruments, scales, and dance moves -- in this case, Indian -- as well as brief exposure to the Hindi language. Elsewhere, episodes present troubleshooting about how to solve problems with friends with hurt feelings, or who feel left out.

Positive Messages

Angelina Ballerina: Ballerina Princess incorporates positive messages about hard work, curiosity, inclusivity, and the thrill of learning new things, even when it seems difficult to master, such as other languages, dance moves, or unfamiliar musical instruments.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Angelina characters are not perfect -- they are sometimes selfish, thoughtless, or give up too easily. But at their center, they are positive role models with good values, kind hearts, and a desire to be good mouselings.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Angelina Ballerina: Ballerina Princess is not typical princess-geared fare in the Disney tradition, but instead focuses on the familiar love for fine arts, friendship, working together, and the thrill of performance found in all the Angelina shows, while also promoting a love for learning.

What's the story?

Angelina and friends embark on their very own prince- and princess-themed adventures when they put on a Sleeping Beauty style fairy tale of their own and read exciting stories. Along the way, they encounter a few mysteries of their own.

Is it any good?

ANGELINA BALLERINA: BALLERINA PRINCESS offers a refreshing take on typical princess-themed fare. Here, a performance might incorporate a fairy tale or two, but the mouselings still care about dancing well, being good friends, not hurting feelings, and learning -- in this case, about the art and culture of Indian music and dance. There's even a mini lesson about the Hindi language, and some native traditional lore (when's the last time you came across that in a Disney princess flick?)

For kids who have an interest in art and music or already love Angelina Ballerina, there are rewarding plotlines here. Parents will be happy to find episodes packed with good reminders about inclusivity, curiosity, and doing the right thing. It's hard to go wrong with Angelina offerings: They're cartoons that have found a way to stay modern, but with timeless lessons.
