Nordic king Erik orders his heiress Kristian, who turned down all suitors, to marry Danish prince Fredrik (Frederic) before her 18th birthday, as legend holds she'll otherwise fall to the 'mountain king' of trolls. Instead she makes a fugue into the very mountains, and the king promises her hand and royal dowry to whoever rescues her.

The oldest recorded form of the name [Ash Lad] is Oskefis ("ash-blower" - although "fis" has evolved to mean "fart" in modern Norwegian), denoting one who blows the embers to keep the fire going, a job often reserved for the lowest member of the household. In some tales, Askeladden's forename is given as Espen, Svein, Halvor, Lars, Hans, or Tyrihans. See more »
I just kept looking at the overly saturated color matching in the landscapes, beautiful.
The dialog was straight out of a video game from 1999, Example: "Look at this I found, This will come in handy later." This was a line several times in the movie.
Sounds from over there, "I better look" Side quest, Weird old lady(?) save her and get magical item, "This will come in handy later".
I watched it on prime, it was dubbed OK, worth a watch if you don't think about it to much.
Probably a good one for the slightly older kids, 8-13 No profanity or sex, Trolls.
