The original Swan princess movie was without a doubt wonderful, and the 2 sequels that followed weren't all that bad either, but to make a 4th film 14 years after the last film really isn't making Richard Rich look good. Yep, this, quite frankly a CGI monstrosity is directed by the same man who brought us the previous 3 movies. My god, I thought Swan Princess was laid to rest the way it was, but nope.
The animation is very sub standard. The plot is kinda poor, the songs aren't all that bad I guess, but I can't get over the animation. If you loved the original film, then I'm sorry Mr Rich, but fans should avoid this movie like plague. I just hope that this isn't the start of the return of Swan Princess films, because if so, we're looking at something worse than the Land Before Time film series. And i actually LOVE the LBT movies, even as the animation got cheaper!
