One of my favourite movies :) The Princess Diaries starring Julie Andrews (the star of Sound of Music) and Anne Hathaway is on Blu-ray and DVD to commemorate the 10th anniversary of this family classic.
This modern-day fairy tales, The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement are available in a 3 Disc combo pack collection (1 Blu-ray and 2 DVDs of both the movies).
The Princess Diaries is about a sweet, geeky teenager that is invisible to everyone except her mother, best friend and brother. Her estranged grandmother informs her that she is the heir to the throne of Genovia, an European country. She is taught everything she needs to know to become a perfect princess. Mia becomes top news because of paparazzi and the movie is about everything she had to decide on. The movie is colourful and exciting to watch, children/ teenagers will enjoy this. Our favourite part is when she goes to meet her grandma.
The Princess Diaries 2 Royal Engagement is about Mia as the future queen of Genovia. This Princess has everything a girl wants except the magical romance she has dreamed of. The princess gets to know that she has to get married right away so her family can continue to have the crown. In this movie she discover who she really is and what it takes to make her dreams come true. It is about all the things that happen for her to find her prince :) My daughter and I really enjoyed all the episodes, especially the part where they have the slumber party.
There are lots of bonus features such as deleted scenes, "A new princess" behind the scenes feature, the ultimate tea party, music videos, finding your inner princess personality quiz and many more in this combo pack.
We enjoyed this G rated funny heart-warming movie. I think it would be a lovely addition to the home collection.
If you are looking for a movie to entertain the children, then get Phineas and Ferb: The Perry flies DVD on June 5th. This Disney DVD 2 disk combo comes with a fun Perry activity pack, which includes a magnet, postcard, stickers and puzzles.
This is a seven episode TV's #1 Animated Series that features Perry the Platypus, the Dynamic Duo Phineas and Ferb. Agent P goes on exciting adventures with his groovy gadgets, mad skills and more.
My daughter said that she found it cool when the clones of the same person started appearing when the button was pressed.
The DVD is about 154 minutes, as it is separated into 7 episodes we can let the children watch 1 or 2 episodes at a time :)
