Quotes

Princess Irene: She's here somewhere. She... she's just invisible at the moment.
Curdie: Your grandmother is invisible?
Princess Irene: Yes. But she is here, I know she is.
Curdie: Look, I'm glad you rescued me, but I dont' have time to play games.
Princess Irene: This isn't a game!
Curdie: No, it's dead serious. The goblins have a plan and you're a part of it. We can't waste our time with invisible grandmothers.
Princess Irene: You don't believe me, do you.
Curdie: Well... I...
Princess Irene: But I thought we were friends.

My family enjoyed it!
19 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Princess and the Goblin is a story about bravery and loyalty. This animated version features a lovely song, excellent voice acting and enjoyable animations. Curdie, the miner boy, sings a song with such haunting beauty that you feel the power in it (reminiscent of a soloist in the Vienna Boy's Choir). The song remains in your memory long after you watch the movie.

From the beginning, the encounters with the goblins and the cobs are handled in an unexpected and amusing fashion.

My family liked The Princess and the Goblin and we recommend it. This movie is refreshingly different from other animated fare, and it brought the 1872 book by George MacDonald to life.
