Now it's time for the new Disney Princess Sing Along Songs starting here with Once Upon A Dream...
On this DVD you will find the following previously released (on VHS or DVD) songs:
A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes ("Cinderella") - now featuring the full version.
Part Of Your World ("The Little Mermaid")
A Whole New World ("Aladdin")
Once Upon A Dream ("Sleeping Beauty")
Colors Of The Wind ("Pocahontas")
Beauty & The Beast ("Beauty & The Beast")
The songs new to Disney Sing Along Songs are:
I'm Wishing/One Song ("Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs")
Like Other Girls ("Mulan II")
Sweet Wings Of Love ("Mickey, Donald & Goofy in The Three Musketeers")
The newest highlight though is "If You Can Dream" performed by the Disney Princesses. Apart from Cinderella and Snow White, the vocals are done by the original voices- a truly magical delight.
Special features include dance alongs and Karaoke for those budding singers out there. An interesting thing to note here is that the original music is used in the Karaoke versions, unlike on most Disney Karaoke CDs and cassettes, so kids get to sing to the real music.
In summary, this is a really nice selection of Disney songs. Granted some have been previously released in different Disney's Sing Along Songs incarnations, but now you get to have them all in one place in the best quality. And now with the all-new Karaoke extra, you don't just get to sing along, you get to be a real singer.
Perfect for the Princess in your family.
Put it Together (Cinderella 2) doesn't fit the classic formula.
Megara's song (from Hercules)is awful and her character is really obscure compared to the rest. The song bores my daughter.
Like Other Girls (a gawdawful tuneless mess that makes me NOT want to see Mulan 2) and Sweet Wings of Love (Three Musketeers, a summer 2004 release) hit you over the head as a marketing ploy (although if the person this is for is a fan of those,it's rather a bonus)
The new princess song, If You Can Dream thrills with sweetly catchy music and lovely harmony. It's really nice to know they got as many original voices as possible, and a welcome treat. However the lyrics utilize as many cliches from previous princess songs as much as they can, robbing the song of some of it's charm. Plus there is no new animation to go with the new song (probably a good thing).
The reworking of Beauty and the Beast and Once Upon a Dream for the Dance Alongs are criminal! It's offensive that they keep updating classic gorgeous songs in this way. The kids are just everyday kids, and that is part of their appeal (hey, it works for the Wiggles)
Overall, you get what you pay for on this. If you child is a fan of this genre, she (or he) will be very happy and your DVD or Video will earn it's purchase price. As an adult, you might feel it's a bit of a cop out, heavy on the cheese to cover some poorly chosen content. But for the happiness it brought my princess, it was worth every penny!
As for the extras, they're okay. My daughter didn't care for the games, and they're definitely not for people over the age of 4 or 5. As for the karokake section (where they show the same clips without the singing) well...unless you're kids like singing or you have the voice of Celine Dion, they/you are not going to enjoy it. I tried to show my daughter how to sing along, and the reaction I got was...'Mama!...No Singing!'. And since she can't read, it was pretty much useless for her to do it by herself. Maybe older kids would enjoy this. I can't see any sane adults doing this, though.
The only section I didn't like was the dancing kids. It was just horrible! Basically they grabbed some kids off the street, put them in front of cheesy background and told them to dance to a bunch of not-so-great songs. The least they could have done was get some kids that actually knew how to dance and dress them up a little bit. Put them in the costumes they sell at Disney World and the Disney Stores, instead of them wearing T shirts and jeans. I found it to be very unprincesslike!Read more ›
