Storyline

An elf gives a queen a magic spell for the baby she always wanted. But an evil curse is placed over her daughter, Rosebud, which results in the king demanding that all the spindles in the kingdom be destroyed. As Rosebud grows into a naive yet pretty young woman, she wonders why no one in the kingdom ever has new cloth. She convinces her parents to go on a journey to a neighboring kingdom, not knowing what awaits her as soon as the king and queen are gone. Written by Max Vaughn

Excellent for Kids
5 May 2010 | by (Apple Valley, CA) – See all my reviews

I recorded this for my 9 y-o daughter so she could watch it. She hasn't moved from watching it ....about an hour ago!

The cast is good. There isn't a whole lot of dialog. The music is synthesized (not a true orchestral soundtrack) So...if that bothers you, like it does me....be forewarned.

The songs are mediocre at best. If you have a musical "ear", the songs (and the singing) will sometimes make you cringe.

On the up-side, the scenes are beautifully shot. Very colorful and the costumes are wonderful.

However, like I said....it's a good movie for the little ones.
