To kick off our 2021 season we're taking a look at Cinderella and the Secret Prince. This film attempts to build off the original Cinderella story to create a unique re-telling all their own, but as we find out the patchwork quilt of a plot just leaves us scratching our heads trying to piece together all the loose threads. Join us as we discuss confusing prophecies, gentlemanly mice, and the all important tethercat principle.
We're closing out the first season of the Bad Princess Movie podcast with a very off-the-cuff Bonus episode where we talk about the past season (And any other topic that springs to mind). Thank you all for tuning into our first podcast season, you can look forward to season 2 starting up sometime in January!
We cap off our first podcast season with A Swan Princess Christmas, the first CGI entrant in the Swan Princess series released 14 years after the original film. Join us as we discuss the anti-climactic return of the series' most iconic villain, Prince Derek's burning hatred towards cats, and how Christianity apparently exists in the Swan Princess universe.
As an early Christmas gift to ourselves we're taking a look at a good Princess movie, The Nutcracker Prince. The Nutcracker Prince is a lovely little film that despite a great voice cast and some pretty decent animation failed to find a foothold at the box office. Join us as we discuss the theme of growing up, Roger Ebert's review of the film, and have a brief conversation on the best way to eat snow.
This week we're taking a look at Princess Castle, another entrant in the Golden Films filmography. Princess Castle is one of Golden Films' original stories and it shows, with it's very strange time-travel-but-also-dimensional-travel plot that'll leave you scratching your head as to what was intentional and what was just bad storytelling. Join us as we discuss the murder of sentient objects, villains adopting babies, and unnecessarily voluptuous bird friends.
To celebrate Halloween we're taking a look at Twitches, a Disney Channel Made-for-TV movie starring real-life twin sisters Tia and Tamera Mowry. Join us as we discuss uncles with evil plans, Canadian children's TV programming in the 90s, and the spookiest thing of all: Our aging 30+ year old bodies.
This week we're taking a look at The Legend of Atlantis, a joint-venture between Golden Films and Goodtimes Entertainment that attempts to answer that age-old question: "What if a giant red devil was the one that sunk Atlantis?". Join us as we discuss secret lairs, giant domes, and the secret lives of shape-shifting dolphin women.
What do you get when you mix the mind of George Lucas with a bit of pixie dust? You get Strange Magic, a 2015 box office bomb that failed to deliver on Lucas' desire to create a "Star Wars for 12-year-old girls". Join us as we discuss juke box musicals, love potions, and Kristi's newfound love of tater tots.
In this episode we're looking at Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs, a film that made headlines in 2017 with a disastrous marketing campaign that body-shamed it's lead character. Would you believe the actual film has a really nice message about loving yourself and others regardless of their physical appearance? Join us as we discuss the film (as well as our inability to remember the provincial capitals of Canada).
Content note: The topic of weight/body image comes up quite frequently in the discussion of this episode.
It's time for us to take our first step into the quagmire that is the Swan Princess series. Swan Princess 5: A Royal Family Tale, is the second CGI sequel in a series that now spans 10 films. Join us as we discuss ancient prophecies, impossible to take seriously squirrel villains, Swan Princess lore, and much, much more!
