In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Golden Globe®-nominated animated classic THE SWAN PRINCESS, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is making the fan-favorite available in brilliant high definition for the first time ever with a collectible anniversary edition Blu-ray and in 4K HDR on digital, both available on October 29th. As fans reminisce over 25 years of the beloved series, they will also be able to enjoy the newest magical installment when THE SWAN PRINCESS: KINGDOM OF MUSIC debuted on DVD and Digital August 6.
THE SWAN PRINCESS, a magical, musical animated adventure based on the classic fairy tale "Swan Lake" has captured the hearts of audiences around the world. The winner of the Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence and the Parents' Choice Award, it's the heartwarming story of the beautiful princess Odette, who is transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer's spell. Held captive at an enchanted lake, she befriends Jean-Bob the frog, Speed the turtle and Puffin the bird. Despite their struggle to keep the princess safe, these good-natured creatures can do nothing about the sorcerer's spell, which can only be broken by a vow of everlasting love. THE SWAN PRINCESS is bursting with color, dazzling animation, beautiful music and the vocal talents of Jack Palance, John Cleese, Steven Wright, Sandy Duncan and Michelle Nicastro.
The 25 anniversary Blu-ray release includes an all-new featurette entitled “A Look Back, Tease Ahead,” plus a variety of additional archival features.
In the newest film in the series, THE SWAN PRINCESS: KINGDOM OF MUSIC, our favorite princesses are back in an all new feature-length musical adventure. Princess Odette is hosting a music competition to celebrate Princess Alise’s birthday - the winner will sing at her grand birthday ball! Prince Li of Cathay has entered, but his sister Princess Mei Li has stowed away on his ship to seek help from Odette and Derek for Chen, who has been cursed to live as a dragon. Lucas and Alise are reunited but Prince Li’s arrival makes Alise doubt her feelings. While Li and Lucas fight for Alise’s heart, Derek and Odette try to help Mei Li and Chen break the curse. Who will win the music festival and will Chen ever be free from his curse?

We really liked this movie. My girls and I liked the music and dancing. It was really neat. And as always, The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music animation is beautiful. The Swan Princess series has been great and G-Rated from the beginning. We have seen all of the movies and we watch them over and over again. This one included a singing competition in which Prince Li competes. Prince Li is the sweetest gentleman and has the most kind heart. Alise and Prince Li fall for each other, but Alise still has feelings for Lucas and she talks about him non-stop to Prince Li. In the end, will Alise end up with Prince Li, or with Lucas? I guess you'll have to buy a copy of The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music on DVD to find out!
