The Princess Twins of Legendale

The Princess Twins of LegendaleLast weekend, the girls and I enjoyed a family film debuting this week at Target stores: The Princess Twins of Legendale.

The Princess Twins of Legendale is made by the creators of the cute Lalaloopsy dolls, and I even noticed that the two dolls shown in the movie bear more than a passing resemblance to her. It’s the tale of twin sisters, Eve and Dawn, who are separated at birth and only reunited in their teens, by a series of magical events (just in case the kid on a flying horse featured on the cover didn’t clue you in that this is no everyday story).

The Princess Twins of Legendale Eve DawnAren’t they cute? The film also features cheery music and fun, visually-appealing animation. My girls enjoyed it, and I feel that at 12, 14, and 16, they’re far older than the target audience.

The Princess Twins of Legendale Queen DumeMy one hesitation on this one is evil Queen Dume, pictured above. She’s a super-creepy spider who enters the baby princesses’ lives early on, stealing one away and knocking their mother to her death over a castle parapet. “Ugh, that’s going to totally creep out little kids!” one daughter exclaimed, and I have a feeling she’s right. Use your discretion on this.

I think The Princess Twins of Legendale would make a great gift for the elementary-age girl in your life. Pick up a copy for a gift next time you’re in Target, or pick one up anytime on Amazon!

  1. We all need some fairy tale magic sprinkled in our mundane lives. We can’t worry about Obamacare ALL the time!

  2. Good thing I don’t have girls. I don’t think I would enjoy this.

  3. The visuals are rather lovely. The story is not original but it is done well. I like the Shakespeare reference an the hints of Greek mythology. There is a violent scene early in the film but it is left to the imagination rather than shown.

Thanks for taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
