The best show I have ever watch in my entire life.

My daughter loves this TV show. The story and the music were so amazing. We watched it since it was first released until now, We really want the story to be continued because the story didn’t end yet. I recommend this for kids and teenager and for those who love fairytales.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (6 ):
Kids say (23 ):

This fairy tale reimagining lacks originality and has some iffy themes, but the youthfulness of the cast may draw young fans regardless. With the likes of Descendants and Ever After High already out there, REGAL ACADEMY feels like it's playing catch-up, and it's not a visual stunner like many of today's CGI shows. It also falls into the somewhat familiar trap of questionable body images with slim-waisted, short-skirted, doll-like girls accounting for much of the cast, and it's troubling that Cinderella specifically asks Rose to keep her whereabouts secret from her mother.

On the upside, Rose's enthusiasm for adventure and new experiences is admirable, and every time she makes a mistake (which happens a lot), she's inspired to try harder to get it right. Despite being a newcomer to Fairy Tale Land, she adapts quickly and wins over doubters with her bubbly personality, which also helps her shrug off peers who don't want to give her a chance.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
