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.
The message is wonderful and the BFF Silly Song is hilarious.
Great take on The Little Princess with a wonderful message about inner beauty.
