Parents need to know that The Swan Princess: Royally Undercover is another Swan Princess movie, the seventh in the series. Princess Odette and Prince Derek, the original Swan Princess and Prince, are adults now. Their fairy-tale heroics have been handed down to their adopted daughter, Princess Alise, and her friend Lucas, aided by the long-standing Lord Rogers (inventor extraordinaire) and an assortment of adorable human-like animals (a frog, a puffin, a turtle). As with its more recent predecessors, this fairy tale is filled with cartoon action that finds the principal characters in danger. Little Princess Alise is called upon to be a dashing, brave young adventurer, whose efforts, along with those of her compatriots, save kingdoms and all the royalty who rule there. They must fend off nefarious villains who stop at nothing for a greedy cause (one baddie has a hook arm, another a scarred face). They are chased, threatened, and held captive, escaping at the very last moment in several sequences. There are no serious injuries or deaths. This story includes a profusion of high-tech gadgets, atypical in most "once upon a time" exploits, which add to the fun. With positive messages about helping those who have been displaced, working together for a common goal, and the importance of family, as well as a clear story and always-inventive characters, this is a solid entry in the Swan Princess franchise. Still, it's not for little ones who don't understand imaginary vs. real violence.
