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

Not as bad as I was expecting
10 October 2010 | by ndunsmoSee all my reviews

For the first 10 minutes of this film, I was expecting nothing more than a cheap, so-so knock-off. Well, the animations still weren't exactly the highest of quality, but they worked. As for the story itself... I was wondering how they could possibly expand the Princess and the Pea to over an hour, and they did by almost making the pea storyline non-existent and instead focusing on another. This film should have been called The Prince and the Peasant, but I digress, titles don't always matter and the story it gave us was actually very interesting/clever. The songs were also quite good. Again, this was just loads better than I thought it would be and ended up being a very enjoyable experience.
