Storyline

As children, Prince Derek and Princess Odette are forced to spend their summers together by their widowed parents, who hope that the two will eventually fall in love and marry, so that the kingdoms of the two will be united. As children and adolescents, Derek and Odette can't stand each other, but as young adults they begin to see each other in a different light and fall in love with each other. But one night things take a bad turn when Derek unintentionally offends Odette, who then refuses to marry him if he can't prove that he loves her for who she is and not just her beauty. Odette and her father are then attacked by Lord Rothbart, a vengeful sorcerer who was cast out of William's kingdom when he plotted against the king. In the form of a beast, Rothbart mortally wounds William, and kidnaps Odette then places her under a spell. Now it is up to Derek to rescue Odette by showing his undying love. But, will he be in time? Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

In the beginning of Rothbart's song "No More Mr. Nice Guy", Rothbart causes an earthquake in the floor by shooting magic at it. In the flash of magic, the number 6.8 can be seen. This could be a reference to the earthquake being rated a 6.8 on the Richter scale. See more »

Goofs

Throughout the whole movie, whenever we see a large crowd - the public in the opening scene with baby Odette, the audience in the ball when Prince Derek proposes, the crowd at the harbor when teen princess Odette uses the sling shot on Derek and so on - the characters in the background are completely still, as a sign that the only animated characters in the film are the ones in the front.

Best Movie Ever!! :D
23 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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 isn't bad. I mistake it for a Disney movie a lot of the time but who can blame me? ^-^
