To commemorate the 10th anniversary of a family classic, Disney released a special movie collection featuring The Princess Diaries and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, for the first time ever on Blu-ray!
I watched the Princess Diaries many many years ago and I remember totally loving the movie so I was looking forward to watching the sequel. After receiving the DVD Combo Pack I had a girls movie night with some friends and after my son was in bed we watched The Princess Diaries 2.
If you watched and liked The Princess Diaries you will like The Princess Diaries 2. I personally love that the movie shows great examples of how to positively approach those who are less fortunate.
The sequel is definitively lighthearted and very fun. My favorite character other than Mia is her Grandmother Clarisse, what a beautiful relationship between them. I also just love Julie Andrews singing and mattress surfing during the sleep over scene.
I really enjoyed watching the bloopers and deleted scenes in the Bonus Features. The “find your inner princess” personality quiz was also fun to take. Definitively a good set of modern-day fairy tales that are engaging and family friendly.
Don’t miss your chance to purchase you own 3-Disc Combo Pack now!
The Princess Diaries Film Synopsis: 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.
The Princess Diaries 2 Film Synopsis: 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!
