Storyline

Long ago in a land with an ailing king, there was a pair of boys who looked exactly alike, a pauper called Mickey and the other, the Crown Prince. Mickey dreamed of plenty and an easy life as Royalty and the Prince dreamed of the freedom as a subject. Happenstance throws them together and their mutual resemblence inspires the pair to switch identities to see how the other lives. To their surprise, Mickey learns of the duties and responsibilties of royalty while the Prince learns to his horror that the Royal Captain of the Guard has taken advantage of the existing power vacuum to inflict brutal tyranny on the subjects. Now the Prince must react to this evil, unaware that the Captain knows about the identity swap and is using it to his own advantage while dominating Mickey who play the Heir to the Throne.

Narrator: For many years, England was ruled by a wise and good king, and the people flourished and were very happy, but by and by, the good king became ill, and a darkness fell over the countryside. As the king grew weaker, his captain of the guard, a ruthless and greedy man, saw his chance to rob and terrorize the people of England, and worst of all, in the king's name. It seemed that no one could save the kingdom of England from the thieving captain and his ruthless henchmen... until one ...

1,000 thumbs up for Disney, great storytelling
13 June 2016 | by maddoxacoxSee all my reviews

I would give it eleven stars but they wouldn't let me.

It is very family-friendly and has a happy ending, whelp this is kind a like the royal version of Mickey's Christmas Carol.

The Prince and the pauper is based of of the Classic story made by Mark Twain, made it more family friendly (ex. less dark, no mention of the dad in the Mark Twain book swearing)

It is good for a family movie night (if they don't have time to see a full length film)

Rating 11/10 {I rate it for age 8+ (also mature 7 and 6 year old's)}

It is currently on Netflix and Walt Disney Short Films DVD
