Find out in this inspiring new story from VeggieTales, based on the beloved classic story of "A Little Princess" that reminds kids who they are in God's eyes by Frances Hodgson Burnett, that has countless movie and book adaptations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Veggie yet August 27, 2012
I have been doing reviews for Veggie Tales for some time now. My family owns every single dvd (& some old vhs). For a while, Big Idea has been struggling after Phil Vischer lost control of the company but they have been coming back strong in the last few years. ( I HIGHLY recommned his book, "Me, Myself & Bob that tells the story.)

Anyway, back to the Princess. This is a retelling of "The Little Princess" which is a hard story to do. Since this is for children you have the option of allowing the father to live, which is what they did with Shirly Temple & just really ruined the whole story or try to tell it in a way that children will not come away too upset.

They just went beyond all expectations with this one. It is a perfect retelling. What surprised me was while they did take some artistic liberties, they stayed very true to the story....you know as well as you can with vegetables. The message of always staying kind through all of your struggles was just perfectly executed. Now, I will say that the usual silliness is there but NOT as much as in the former videos. The silly song about texting gave me a headache but my kids loved it ......& understood it...which I find kind of scary!

I hope Big Ideas keeps this up. Since they just got bought out by Dreamworks (the makers of Shrek, etc) I have some fears that the "Christian" message present in so many Veggie Tales is going to fade away to just being a "be a good kid just because" message. I will keep my fingers crossed.

I was able to take my 4 year old daughter to see an early preview of this movie and I loved it! My daughter did too of course. The story is based on the Little Princess and has an excellent message about being God's Princess no matter how much wealth you have. Every girl is a princess to God and my daughter left the movie understanding that. The little friends that the Princess Sarah makes are charming and the little song in between about BFF friends will give more laughs to the adults watching. I am so excited to get this movie for my girls to watch during their young years and I look forward to watching the positive message over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Movie that got us hooked on Veggie Tales August 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
We got to watch this movie before it was released at a Princess Party at our church. My four year old was absolutely captivated by the movie.

The message is wonderful and the BFF Silly Song is hilarious.

Great take on The Little Princess with a wonderful message about inner beauty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!!! August 18, 2012
By TM

I haven't been as fond of some of the newer Veggie Tales movies, but I absolutely LOVED this one. It is very cute, sweet and touching and has a wonderful moral--that as long as we believe that God loves us, we can be a princess no matter the situation and that can help us be kind to others even when they're not kind to us. My 6-year-old son loved this movie also! :) I highly recommend it!

Larry the Cucumber dons British attire and accent to introduce The Penniless Princess, an adaptation of the classic children’s book, A Little Princess, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The stage is set for this London story by a question: How do you love those who are less than kind? The answer comes with knowing the true source of our worth. Hint: it’s not derived from material things. It has to do with who we are in God’s sight.

This has it all: a compelling story, biblical values, gorgeous animation, excellent music, simple but witty dialog, and moving moments balanced by the zany humor that is uniquely VeggieTales. Speaking of the latter, upon arriving in London, Papa Razzi with his filmless camera, remarks to his companion, who wants to see a musical, “Musicals are so unrealistic, people bursting into song for no reason.” Immediately, a porter appears singing, “Might I fetch your bag?” Suddenly, he is singing in reply.

This is a musical of sorts, but it is not overdone, for those who might not fancy “people bursting into song for no reason.” It is similar to previous DVDs. A new silly song, “Best Friends Forever,” a humorous take on all kinds of texting acronyms, serves as an intermission in the middle.

In the story, Miss Minchin, who is as mean as Sara Crew is kind, indirectly provides some of the comedy. On almost every occasion when the former’s name is mentioned, there is an ominous neighing of horses. She also happens to be allergic to Mortimer, Sara’s teddy bear, which leaves her in a disheveled state that is most unbecoming. It serves as just punishment for her cruelty.

Unwittingly, Miss Minchin (horses neighing), brings out the best in Sara, who goes from a life of privilege to having nothing.
