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 their two kingdoms 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?

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.

Its one of the best early animated films!!
3 January 2006 | by pam1987_arSee all my reviews

I hadn't watched Swan Princess when I was younger but recently I did and I loved it! I think its so different from the ordinary Disney film...well i heard it's not even Disney so I guess that's a given. But the characters looked different and it has some really nice songs. Especially the first one "This is my idea" which speeds things up from when they're kids to when they're older...its really cute and the song itself is nice. Also its not the typical old animated films where the guy and girl fall in love straight away since they kinda dislike each other when they were young. But after that they just have this beautiful love which is both happy and sad and perfect!! Other than that, far longer than forever is a great song, along with many others. Tons of funny characters - Jean Bob the frog, Puffin and Speed who are Odette's animal friends are hilarious as well as Prince Derek's adviser and his friend. Anyway love it!! A must see classic.
