I had the opportunity to attend a special screening of Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams. This is the first release in this new Princess series which features Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Jasmine from Aladdin. The tales are told in two different segments but are linked by the theme of Perseverance. For those who may have grown up loving these films (or who have children who adore these characters), it was wonderful to see how much care was taken to deliver such detailed and nuanced animation in this direct-to-DVD release.

Princess Aurora shows the importance of never taking the easy way out and being proud of one's own efforts, while Jasmine asserts that even a princess needs to do something challenging with her life. Both stories are told in a humorous fashion and the whimsical new songs, Keys To The Kingdom & More Than A Peacock Princess, should not disappoint. The original singing voice of Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, Lea Solonga, also returns to make this a special treat.

This truly exceptional entry into the Disney Princess canon sends a very empowering message. If you can truly believe in your own abilities, GREATNESS CAN BE ACHIEVED!

Disney Princess DVDs take a new turn with "Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams." This 56 minute program, the first in a new DVD line, does something totally different: it offers entirely new and fully animated content. Finally, people get what they originally wanted and expected from the Disney Princess Collection DVDs. This disc features two all new animated stories starring Princess Aurora from "Sleeping Beauty" and Princess Jasmine from "Aladdin." What's more, Disney doesn't take advantage of the all-new animation by false advertising. They make no attempt to call this a "sequel" or "Aurora Meets Jasmine," (they don't interact, by the way, so don't have a geek-gasm), though "Tales of Perseverance" would have made more sense than "Follow Your Dreams." I suppose the latter is more appealing to the younger set though.

The program starts rather abruptly, as the closest thing there is to any opening credits are part of the main menu. To explain, as the DVD menu is kicked up for the first time, a proper English narrator introduces you to a magical castle in which a very special book is kept. The book is full of stories of Disney Princesses (and Mulan), sans the lovely Eilonwy (hmph), and when you select Play (or if you are simply entrusting Fast Play with full power), it immediately turns to a page featuring Aurora. The page comes alive, as Aurora greets the viewer and begins to talk about perseverance leading into the first story, "Keys to the Kingdom."

In "Keys to the Kingdom," Princess Aurora is left in charge of the land for two days while her parents, along with Prince Phillip and King Hubert, are away at a conference. Left in charge, she is determined to do everything well and on her own, no matter how long it takes.

As stated in other reviews, there should be no expectation from animation fans that this DVD is meant to be a sequel to the original classics. This DVD is what I would call 2 morality/life lesson tales aimed at children, presented in such a way that it is entertaining for them to watch. Disney has done a great job of keeping the characters looking like they did in the originals; however, I really do question the vocal choice for Aurora. Ilene Woods is a tough act to follow, but surely they could have found a girl who matched her better. The current choice has a pleasant enough speaking voice, but when she sings, there is a definite disparity between the two. Still, most children will not notice these things and will be very entertained by the plots that are sprinkled with humor aimed at their age level. Some might miss the addition of a villain or two, but with each of the 2 stories being less than half an hour, it probably would have added to the length of the show. It's actually somewhat heartwarming to have these classic characters presented in such a simple way; the "you must do things the hard way" lesson is probably easier for children to relate to when the overall plot is not convoluted with villians. The marketing is also spot-on for this; this DVD is about 2 princesses, so do not expect to see Aladdin at all, or the Genie. Prince Phillip makes a cameo in the Aurora episode, but he has no real place in the plot. The extras are nice (especially the music video with Belle from Beauty and the Beast) and the previews really make one wish that "Enchanted" was being released sooner! Bottom line: great video that your children could watch safely alone, or with a parent and then discussed afterwards.

Format: DVD
I will admit as a kid I love the Disney Princesses, as an adult raising a very impressionable young daughter I look at them a little differently.

This limited edition DVD follows Princess Jasmine and Princess Aurora in a fun, musical filled adventure. Your little girl will learn that when you try to take shortcuts in getting a job done, you will end up with disaster and it will take more time and effort to fix the problems you made. I love the lesson that this teaches our children - something we are already trying to instill in our daughter.

What I do not like about the Princesses is that life is oftentimes centered around them rather than others. I want my daughter to be others centered not self centered. When you are others centered and you come last, you will have a joy and happiness that things can not give you.

The music was as always cute and very catchy.
