Outline This excellent theatrical feature is loosely based on the Swan Lake story. Princess Odette, having been turned into a swan by a sorcerer's spell, is held captive at the enchanted lake with friends Jean-Bob the frog, Speed the turtle, and Puffin the bird. Along comes Prince Derek, who becomes involved in liberating her by taking on the villain. The movie has been criticized for being too similar to Sleeping Beauty, but once you're watching it--with its strong characters, entertaining vocal performances (John Cleese and Steven Wright are particularly funny), fine artwork, and action--such complaints are negligible. --Tom Keogh

Reviews - What do customers think about The Swan Princess (Special Edition)?
Decent Movie, but more of a chick flick. Feb 8, 2008
It is a decent movie but I really bought it for my girlfriend. Kind a gift with the purpose of reliving the childhood and it worked out nicely. She loved it and it a very enjoyable movie. Great music and a cute storyline, it all ties together to create a good flick.
A little violent. Sep 18, 2007
My 2 yr old and 5 yr old love this movie. My 2 yr old calls herself "odette," after the swan princess. But there is a lot of fighting for young ones. They love the songs, too.
Is the "Special" Edition really "Special"? Sep 11, 2007
This movie has its charms; however I'm a bit skeptical that they're calling this a "special" edition: Where are the extra features, making of, commentary, etc.? And where's the original wide-screen version of the film? Why just the full-screen version? They've done this with the DVDs to other animated films ('Cats Don't Dance', 'Balto', just to name a couple. These, as well as Swan Princess, deserve the wide-screen formats.) So--4 stars for the film, but minus one star for perhaps-not-being-such-a-special-edition-after-all. (I guess that's what you'd call it!)
Fun and entertaining Aug 9, 2007
It seems that everyone has believed that one day Princess Odette and Prince Derek would marry. But, Odette will only marry for true love. And there is another who is determined that the marriage will never take place - the evil sorcerer Rothbart. He has taken Odette and placed her under a spell, and now it is up to Derek to rescue Odette by showing his undying love. But, will he be in time?
I love this movie, and have been watching it over and over again since it first came out in 1994. Now, I must admit that the illustration work isn't quite up to Disney standards, but what this movie does have is a wonderful story, filled with interesting characters and a lot of fun scenes. If you have little ones, and are looking for a fun and entertaining cartoon movie, then go get The Swan Princess. My family and I give it out highest recommendations!
No more Mister Nice guy... Jul 14, 2007
Sweet movie for kids and I love it too. True love wins in the end and that is always the best ending. One bad guy tries to take over the kingdom through taking the king's daughter. The music is so cute and some really funny like "this is not my idea of fun."
