This movie offers good-hearted fun for younger kids. The Chinese-inspired location is appealing, and fans of the franchise will enjoy this latest installment of familiar characters. The Barbie-esque depiction of the princesses and the tired royal wedding cliché could grate on some viewers' nerves, but ultimately it's the women who must save the day in The Swan Princess: A Royal Wedding, displaying courage and intelligence along the way. Good wins out over evil in the Swan Princess universe, and that's a message that should never get old.

The customs and setting of the China-inspired location offer some depth to the tale, including wall-sized murals that tell the history of the royal family's ancestors. A neat plot device has characters getting stuck inside the painting. Older viewers will also appreciate the humor in the movie. Derek's father's desperate attempts to keep his wife from making a fool of herself are cute, and the always wisecracking sidekick animals get the last laugh. "Why does she have to be called Fang -- why not just be Tooth?" the frog wonders.
