Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this sequel has more cartoon action and violence than the original Swan Princess. There are explosions, threatening fires, spooky music, crocodiles with gnashing teeth, several falls from a mountain top, an episode in which the hero appears to be sucked into quicksand, a scary wolf chasing the heroes, a landslide crashing down upon the prince, and more. It should also be noted that the emphasis is on the fun of the chase and the derring-do of the characters rather than the effects of all the violence. There is no blood; no one dies on screen; and, though a very lovable frog is unconscious for a period of time, none of the heroes is seriously injured. The two villains, however, plunge from a cliff and are never seen again.
Three sweet kisses between married prince and princess.
Cartoon violence includes: swordplay, characters plunging from mountain tops and cliffs, threatening fires, explosions, hostage taking, prince being sucked into quicksand, crocodiles harassing heroes, a frightening wolf. Villains fall and disappear into deep crevasses, never to be seen again.
Classic good triumphs over evil. Prince Derek, the hero, learns a valuable lesson about what is truly important in life. Loyalty, courage, and unselfishness defeat greed, meanness, and a thirst for power.
