But, will he be in time? Runtime: 90 mins Release Date: 17 Dec 1994
This was my favorite sage of movies when I was 3. I still love them to this day when I am 15. This movie tells the timeless tale of two lovers who are drawn apart by one shallow prince who eventually learns that there is more to love than looks and beauty. When Derek goes on his quest to find Odette, he realizes how much he really does love her and his kingdom gets sick of hearing about here. The music is spectacular as well. I love the songs "Far Longer Than Forever" and "This Is My Idea". "This Is My Idea" shows Derek and Odette growing up and you notice that <more>
every year their relationship grows until one summer when they realize how much they really do love each other. When they are pulled apart by Rothbart and how shallow Derek is, they sing the duet "Far Longer Than Forever" about their everlasting love for each other. Anyone who does not like even the first movie has a real issue. Even though the saga got kind of lame as the years went by, they still hit me close to home.
Boo, Boo! I say to all reviewers who think it is corny, so what. I love it anyway.This is a type of film Disney is known for making, instead it is made by Columbia Tristar. The story is basically about a princess called Odette who is kidnapped by an evil sorcerer, Lord Rothbart who puts a spell on her that turns her into a swan and the only way the spell can be broken is if Prince Derek declares his love for Odette.Jack Palance plays Rothbart as a pantomime villain.I like the love story between Odette and Derek especially when they start of not liking one another.It has some very funny scenes <more>
and lines. The two scenes that stand out for me is when the Prince is practicing his marksmanship with painted arrows and the targets are musicians dressed up as animals. Another is Jean-Bob, a frog voiced by John Cleese who is convinced he is a prince and that if he kisses Odette he will become one.The songs are very memorable and catchy, I especially liked the songs "Practice, practice, practice," "No fear," and "This is my idea." The animation is just amazing, the movement is so realistic and the scene at the end is awesome as it is at night, you can see the shadows of the water, the moon sparkling and the swans flying by.This film has it all- romance, humour, magic, action, brilliant animation and a moral story where good triumphs over evil.
I saw this movie when I was very young and at first never really understood it. My uncle had just taped it for me and put it on and i sat down and watched it. As the years passed and I watched it more I understood it better. Of course it makes perfect sense now considering I'm 13 but I recently watched it at my friend's house and I had to smile at all the sweet moments and at the "Far Longer then forever" song. The relationship between Odette and Derrik is so romantic and I love it! This movie is one of my favorites and considering it was made awhile ago the animation <more>
isn't bad. I mistake it for a Disney movie a lot of the time but who can blame me? ^-^
Its one of the best early animated films!! (by pam1987_ar)
I hadn't watched Swan Princess when I was younger but recently I did and I loved it! I think its so different from the ordinary Disney film...well i heard it's not even Disney so I guess that's a given. But the characters looked different and it has some really nice songs. Especially the first one "This is my idea" which speeds things up from when they're kids to when they're older...its really cute and the song itself is nice. Also its not the typical old animated films where the guy and girl fall in love straight away since they kinda dislike each other when <more>
they were young. But after that they just have this beautiful love which is both happy and sad and perfect!! Other than that, far longer than forever is a great song, along with many others. Tons of funny characters - Jean Bob the frog, Puffin and Speed who are Odette's animal friends are hilarious as well as Prince Derek's adviser and his friend. Anyway love it!! A must see classic.
I was very young when this movie came out, so I grew up watching it. I have ALWAYS loved this movie. I just barely watched it over again because now I'm in high-school and I hadn't watched it in a long time , and I still love it! It's true that it does have it's flaws, but they're nothing huge. It's still better than most Disney movies that I've seen but then again, that's just my personal opinion .I agree with those who say that the sidekicks are the best; but Derek's sidekicks are just as amusing as Odette's. I love Brom and Queen Uberta; but <more>
Rodgers remains my favorite character of the movie. I love his sarcastic humor- "You should write a book; How to offend women in 5 syllables or less." Come on- that's hilarious! I also like that Chamberlain guy. He has my favorite line of the whole film; "Oh! the milkman- it must be the milkman!....... Well... it's not the milkman." I think that the biggest flaw in the whole play was Princess Odette; she is supposed to be the heroine, and she never does anything! OK, she finds Derek and gets him to come to the lake, but she couldn't have even done that without Puffin, Speed and Jean-Bob. No offense, but when Derek said, "What else is there?" He was kind of on to something.And contrary to what most people say, I loved all the music- even "No More Mr. Nice Guy." My favorite song is "This is My Idea," simply because it's funny, and I don't mind it getting stuck in my head which it tends to do a lot .I just think that there's something in the Swan Princess for every age though keep in mind that I can only attest to 15 . It's a movie that every girl would enjoy seeing at least once.
Look at what they did back in time when not much of computer assisted magic available as it is today, they did an EXCELLENT job. Talented voice artists, talented REAL voice artists, not just bunch of talkative kids voiced the persona. Technical aspects are as superb as they could get to the date's standards. Beautiful songs and orchestrations, and very talented vocalists too. My child enjoyed watching this same as I did. I continue listening to the beautiful songs of this movie every now and then. Very nice.
loved it (by puteriain6)
*sigh* I was like around 2 years old when it came out and apparently it was a favorite of mine along with the Disney classics and such. And even though I'm 13 now.. i still love it. A total classic love story where the two "lovers" are separated and the Prince has to find the Princess. I love the songs 'This Is My Idea' and 'Far Longer Than Forever'. This Is My Idea is probably my favorite because it shows Odette and Derek grow up together and it's quite funny when they come to the "This is not my idea.. This isn't my idea.. of fun" since it <more>
usually concludes humorous scenes. Any young child would love it.. especially girls. The animal-trio are hilarious especially Jean-Bob and Speed.
A cult classic that has been stuck with me since my childhood (by gavin-thelordofthefu-48-460297)
After Disney released "The Lion King" which has been met with critical praise and became a success at the box office for the company, Disney animator Richard Rich known for directing "The Fox and the Hound" and "The Black Cauldron" teams up with New Line Cinema to make their very first animated feature, "The Swan Princess", based on the Swan Lake ballet.It tells the story about two kids named Derek & Odette who started to hate each other for about a long time until one day, as young adults, they finally realize that they do love each other, but <more>
Derek ruins the wedding by saying "What else is there?" and they will never see each other again. Meanwhile, an evil sorcerer named Rothbart captures Odette and turns her into a swan that would only turn her back into a human as the moon rises. As Derek tries to find Odette by learning from his mistake, Odette and her animal friends Jean-Bob, a frog, Speed, a turtle, and Puffin, a bird attempts to bring her back to Derek.I first saw this film when I was a child and it has been stuck with me ever since even as a young adult I'm turning 19 soon, by the way . It still holds up, but there are two problems that I do have with this classic. The animation is beautiful and colorful, but is a bit deflated some of the time. Derek is a bland character, but is a somewhat sympathetic character since he learned that to love a woman is to prove his love for her.Flaws aside, everything else still holds up. The story is very original and sticks closely to the ballet without any ballet dances which works for me. The characters are charming and likable; Odette is a beautiful and feisty character and I liked her hair as well. The side characters including Bromley, Rogers whose line "How To Offend Women In 5 Syllables Or Less made me laugh and Uberta, who never fails to steal every scene in the movie. The animal sidekicks including Jean-Bob, Speed, and Puffin are excellent. The villain Rothbart, voiced by the late Jack Palace, is great and his motives, although over-the-top, are very amusing. The songs, on the whole, are pleasant and memorable to listen to especially "Far Longer Than Forever". Even the ending is satisfying. The battle between Derek and Rothbart is the best highlight of the movie because it represents some of the past-Disney films with a style and tone to it.Overall, The Swan Princess isn't a masterpiece, but it's by no means a cult classic that has been stuck with me since my childhood. It may have received a mixed reception when it was first released, but I'm recommending this to those who love Disney and Non-Disney films.
One of my favourite non Disney movies as a kid (by lisafordeay)
I have the VHS for this which is 16 years old and I always watch it whenever there is nothing on TV.The film is about a beautiful princess named Odette who falls in love with a handsome prince named Derek whom she met as a kid and the two of them don't get along at first but as they are brought together every summer they fall in love with each other.Of course when Odette gets older an evil warlock wants her from himself and when she refuses to marry him as he is taking over her kingdom every time the moon goes she is magically transformed into a swan and when the moon comes back the next <more>
day she is turned back into a human again.Although its kinda silly in a way and a bit old-fashioned but I like this film for a very long time as it was fun,cute,romantic and sweet. The songs were so sweet like For longer than forever was such a romantic ballad and that other song No more Mr nice guy which had me smiling for days. The characters were colorful,the plot was nice and cheerful,the ending was nice.If you like transformation movies like Beauty & the Beast,Brother Bear,The Little Mermaid then check it out.8/10
