A Modern Day Princess Fairytale x2

Have you seen Disney’s The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2? If not or if you don’t have your own copy of both of these titles on your shelf at home you must go and pick up the new combo pack 10th Anniversary Edition.

The Princess Diaries both #1 and #2 are movies that as a family we all enjoy, yes even my husband enjoys them – just don’t tell his friends, he has three little girls and is a total chick flick guy. Luckily we just had a little boy so in a few years he’ll get to start doing all that fun guy stuff and I’m sure it’ll help balance the testosterone in the house, however if the girls have their say he’ll also learn to enjoy the good clean family movies that tend to be categorized as a little “girly”. I definitely want him to be well balanced and you just can’t turn down a good clean family movie, Disney definitely does a good job producing quite a few of these.

For the First Time on Blu-ray

Film Synopsis: The Princess Diaries Mia Thermopolis is the average teenager - sweet, a little geeky and pretty much 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 the newspapers 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.

2 Film Synopsis: The Princess Diaries Starring the irresistible Anne Hathaway and Academy Award winner Julie Andrews (Best Actress, Mary Poppins), 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!

Both of these movies were clean, funny and charming. Definitely the modern day princess story where an awkward young teen girl is transformed into the epitome of sophistication with just a touch of her own sass and style that makes you love her! Definitely a recommended watch and must have to add to your DVD/ Blu-ray collection.
