Cannon Films reused many of same sets. For example the set for the princess's bedroom is the same as nursery from "Rumpelstiltskin" with the murals removed from the walls. See more »
What are you so worried about? I'm the one who's going to be crowned princess.
Well maybe you won't. Maybe Zora will get back.
She's not coming back. She'll never find him - never.
Well I hope she does. Because you're cruel, Henrietta. You don't deserve it. I much rather be friends with Zora than you!

When I'm princess, I'll remember that!

In the Kingdom of Tartonia, Zora (Aileen Quinn) lives a carefree life except for her older mean-spirited sister Henrietta (Helen Hunt). The King (Clive Revill) receives a letter from Baron Von Whobble that he's coming to declare one of his two nieces Zora and Henrietta is going to be a true princess. After being ridiculed, Zora wishes for someone to talk to. The Frog Prince answers her wish.
Aileen Quinn has a great big voice for a little girl as she already shown in Annie. Her singing is the best thing about this musical. There isn't much else in this movie. The production value is pretty low. The sets are fairly fake. The dialog is pretty stiff. It feels more like a stage play. The direction, the staging, and the editing could definitely use a lot of help. The singing from the rest of the cast is reasonable but nothing great. The story is pretty thin. There is nothing here other than to see a slightly older Aileen Quinn singing her heart out and Helen Hunt playing the mean girl.
