It might be pretty safe to say that this is my favorite Veggie Tales video so far and that is saying something. We love Veggie Tales in general for the fun and valuable material that it provides for the family, but lately I have been extremely satisfied with the retelling or touching of classic stories. Earlier this year with Robin Hood and now with the classic tale of A Little Princess. Watching the film a Little Princess was a big part of my childhood, and I have many memories of watching it again and again. Having two daughters of my own I look forward to reading the story aloud with them as they get older to a long read-aloud story time. (We’re getting there!) A Little Princess is such a wonderful story with so many elements on being a good person and not giving up hope. Being genuine in so many ways. This movie has it all and delivers it in a great and fun family friendly way full of entertainment.
The songs through out the “play” part of the story are very contemporary broadway-like in my opinion and that makes them fun to learn and sing aloud to. They are both heart twinging and also beautiful, but I could picture myself belting them out… maybe when the Enginerd is not home… The on to the silly song. OMGosh! So silly and so much fun. I’m not sure I could learn the words all to sing along to that one, it would take a good bit of effort. I remember when text messaging first started… LOL Each of the characters in this film are picked really well and fit perfectly. While the ending is slightly different from what I remember, I’m not sure I have read the story as opposed to seeing previous film versions… so who knows what’s what in that, but one day! I’m delighted to have this in our film collection both for Veggie Tales, but also for girl’s classics. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it as a must-have for every family.
