A father and daughter are caught in a parallel universe where the great queens Snow White, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood have had their kingdoms fragmented by warring trolls, giants and goblins.
After his father is killed, King Valemon ascends the throne, only to be turned into a polar bear by a bitter witch who wants to be his queen. Valemon must find a bride in the seven year span that he'll be a polar bear, and so he travels to Winterland and finds a wife to take home. Although they are happy, she is not allowed to look upon his face when he turns back into a man at night. When she breaks this rule, Valemon will be trapped to the witch forever. Written by
The story of the king coming to his bride at night so she cannot see him, and her sisters convincing her to use a lantern to see him (which has negative consequences), is based of the Greek story of god Eros (Cupid) and his bride Psyche, which was also the basis for Beauty and the Beast. See more »
When I was a little kid, I remember watching this movie over and over. Now that I've seen it again, I realize it's campy and cheesy, and I didn't find anything spectacular about it. It's pretty nice visually, and the acting is so so. But really, I'd avoid this movie if I were looking for a movie to rent for my peers and myself, or something of the sort.
However, I can guarantee that your kids will love it. It's bright and colorful, the story is hardly complicated and is easy to catch on to. Also, it teaches good lessons (never give up, etc), it's innocent, and it is pretty fun. If you want a movie to keep your kids busy and entertained, I do highly recommend this for you.
