A wonderful fairy-tale anime film from 1969
22 February 2008 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

Here is another favorite fairy tale that I love from Charles Perrault and also made into a wonderful anime film from 1969. I had ordered the DVD of this film and after watching it a few times, it became one of my favorite anime films; and also favorite animated literary film. There are a number of song-and-dance numbers, which to bonafide anime-fans think they'd sound a little Disney-fied. But I kind of like those numbers.

I have added Princess Rosa to my list of Non-Disney Princesses and I think she certainly fits the part nicely. Overall this film is wonderful fairy-tale fantasy and a must-have for anime fans like me.
