What took you so long?
The Thralls still hold the Castle. They've infiltrated every inch of the Kingdom and beyond.

Fair princesses aside, everything else here is vile
It's obvious that the familiar title is meant to lure unknown people as they assume this is a big budget title with fine presentation, while the fact is Avengers Grimm is barely the level Halloween play. It uses mythical princess' tales and translates them into modern world but the execution is far from magical. Acting is incredibly bad, graphic effect is from two decades old and no attractive princess can save it from the abysmal production.
No in-depth analysis requires. From the first couple of scenes it's clear that the acting suffers significantly. Delivery for most of these princess is outright overly dramatic or rigid reading. The actresses fit the look, but as they speak the illusion of glamor falls almost immediately.
It has some decent costume and set, although most of the scenes are shot in random warehouse or street. If anything, it's probably worth just to see mature version of the princesses for brief amusement, you don't need magic mirror to know there's not much else here.
