Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (2):

On its own, this is a mildly entertaining movie with some funny characters, an admirable heroine and hero, and pleasant, if not memorable, music. Despite the undeniable similarity in plot to Swan Princess II (in both films Lord Rothbart's successors attempt to snatch the same Forbidden Arts from the castle; and in all three films, members of the royal family are kidnapped in the villains' quest for power), this third offering has been able to recapture some of the charm, humor, and magic of The Swan Princess. It's more fun and more contemporary than the first sequel. Still, the filmmakers were obviously working on a much tighter budget and it shows. In fact, they resort to clips from the original film as visuals for a "new" musical production number with a new song. The voice work, originality, and clever choreography that made The Swan Princess special are missed once again.
