The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music Review
One of the best things about The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music is having a chance to enjoy characters that I loved as a kid with my own kids. We talk a lot about the nostalgia of 90’s coming back and it has been fun watching this movie take shape over the years in other films with new characters. All while watching Odette “grow-up”, essentially.
As for my kids, they both enjoyed the adventure and new music in this film. We all loved that Princess Alise has returned with Lucas but just a bit older now. Again, it is fun watching these characters “grow-up” and continue a storyline that we are eager to learn about.
Two classic love stories tested through adventure, faith, and with a little help from favorite characters we’ve loved the entire series through. With the crafts I have for you below, your kids will be sure to dance, sing, and laugh while watching The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music. Movie night doesn’t have to be just sitting and enjoying the movie. It can be about getting up and interactive with it too!
With a run time of one hour and twenty-three minutes, this movie is the perfect selection for a summer movie night while we wait for the arrival of The Swan Princess 25th Anniversary Edition releasing on October 29th.
Bring home The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music TODAY on digital or purchase the DVD on Amazon.
