Storyline

It is loosely based on Hans Christian Anderson's classic fairy tale. Because the evil prince Laird did not inherit the crown of Corazion, he sought his revenge by secretly switching his newborn daughter with that of his brother's, King Heath. The real princess is raised as a peasant, unaware of her royal lineage. Years later, Prince Rollo comes to the kingdom in search of a wife. Unless Sebastian, the court historian, discovers the secret of the pea, dire consequences await the kingdom of Corazion. The plot thickens when Rollo meets and falls in love with a peasant girl. Though she is everything his heart desires, she is not a princess. With time running out, Laird returns with a scheme that could put him on the throne. The characters all come together for an exciting castle top finale, in which the fate of the kingdom will finally be decided. Written by Anonymous

Sebastian the Raven: [the "birthmark" on Hildegard's foot is smudged, proving that it's fake] Ahahahaha! I was right! Hildegard is NOT your daughter, Heath!
Helsa: Ah! The pig's out of the bag!
[Fearless the pig pops out of his hiding place - Princess and Hungry appear as well]

A whole lot of cartoons in one.
6 January 2004 | by lelieSee all my reviews

When I first saw Mark Swan's 'Princess and the Pea', I was expecting a short plot less fairytale. Instead, I was treated to a long animated film, with plenty of character development, and much more of a plot than the fairytale I remember. Many of the situations and characters are based on other animation. Homage is paid to Disney film like Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, and even Black Cauldron. It isn't limited to Disney; one scene is very much like Wonder Works Anastasia, and another like Rich's Swan Princess, with others like Thumbelina. But it all flows nicely. The whole plot has a quiet pace. A smart bird (like Zazu in Lion King?) plays a major part. Plenty of singing. After the first song it was quite good. The animation was quite nice; real feature animation and not TV animation. All in all, a very nice film. Too bad it can't get the exposure it would if it had a Disney label. It may be hard to find, but it's worth it. It makes me look forward to Swan's The Velveteen Rabbit.
