Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Disney Princess Remixed is a musical show with songs that cross-reference other Disney shows and movies. Musical numbers feature a singer and an ensemble of dancers who accompany the singers as they perform songs about having courage, working hard, following a dream, or being loyal. The main character, who serves as a kind of preteen MC, is shown in what's presumably her bedroom "remixing" songs inspired by Disney princesses. She has a good supply of electronic devices, couches, and her name is written large in neon lights on the wall. There is one male in the show (Frankie A. Rodriguez, who played Carlos in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, breaking a LGBTQ+ barrier when he sang a song to his boyfriend in that show).
Is It Any Good?
Geared toward tweens and younger teens, this song-and-dance fest is heavy on cross-marketing. Disney Princess Remixed is full of messages about following your dreams, being loyal, and being hardworking. The positive messages are everywhere; in fact, they sort of hit you over the head like a ton of bricks. The songs are steeped in messages about getting closer to your goals and being true to yourself. On the surface this is wonderful to hear, but the consumer focus that's woven in is rampant too, as if in order to be a Disney princess you need all the expensive gear that the main character, Harper, has. Harper's sidekick is a diamond-shaped smart device, which Harper assures: "You're the best bestie."
Nonetheless, tried and true fans of Disney will delight in this princess-inspired variety show featuring stars of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and its spin offs. And we see you, moms and dads with your Mickey ears on. Parents who are Disney buffs will get a kick watching their little princess fans dive in devotedly to the next generation of Disney icons.
