The Princess Diaries and the Princess Diaries 2 is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary with a DVD and Blu-Ray combo pack available in stores now.
Here’s a synopsis:
The Princess Diaries:
Invisible to everyone with the exception of her mother, best friend Lilly and Lilly’s older brother Michael. Making it through high school without throwing up is a challenge in itself for Mia, so it doesn’t come as welcome news when her estranged grandmother shows up out of the blue and calmly informs her that she is in fact the heir to the throne of a European country called Genovia. Suddenly Mia’s life is thrown into complete overload. She’s being taught about scarves, waves and pears in order to become a perfect princess, she gets a makeover and a tough looking yet sweet bodyguard/limo driver called Joe. Things get out of hand when the media gets a hold of the story and suddenly Mia is thrust into the spotlight in both thenewspapers and in school. On top of all that Mia has a choice to make. She must decide by Genovia’s Independence Day Ball whether she longs to relinquish her claim on the throne or to become the princess and heir to the throne and father and grandmother want her to be.
The Princess Diaries 2:
This modern-day fairy tale picks up right where The Princess Diaries left off! As future queen of Genovia, Princess Mia (Hathaway) has everything a girl could want – except the magical romance she’s always dreamed of. But soon, Mia’s shocked to discover that she needs to get married right now or her family will lose the crown! Comic complications rule the day in this delightful family story about finding out who you really are and discovering what it takes to make your dreams come true!
I was actually surprised to learn these movies were based on books, this is something I’d never really know as I am not much of a reader.
These movies are for older tweens/teens, there is some kissing and while it’s rated G, it still may make you blush if you watch the movie together as a young family. I have a 3 year old at home, and there is no way I would show these movies to her just yet. I generally like to screen movies before we watch them as a family, even the G ones and this is one that I’m very glad that I put into the DVD player before attempting to watch it as a family. Just a short review this time, as I did not find them as family friendly as I was hoping for and did not continue watching the film as I knew it would not make the cut.
While I know I’ve watched the films in the past, it just goes to show how much I forget overtime and as life circumstances change, I see things now that would have never even crossed my mind years ago.
