Can you believe it has been 25 years since The Swan Princess came out? Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has issued a collectible anniversary edition and some adorable crafts to do with your kids for a fun family movie night! 

Look at this awesome guitar you can make, and play along to the amazing music from The Swan Princess: Kingdom of Music (out on DVD and Digital Now).   


The Swan Princess, a magical, musical animated adventure based on the classic fairy tale “Swan Lake” has captured the hearts of audiences around the world. The winner of the Film Advisory Board Award of Excellence and the Parents’ Choice Award, it’s the heartwarming story of the beautiful princess Odette, who is transformed into a swan by an evil sorcerer’s spell. Held captive at an enchanted lake, she befriends Jean-Bob the frog, Speed the turtle and Puffin the bird. Despite their struggle to keep the princess safe, these good-natured creatures can do nothing about the sorcerer’s spell, which can only be broken by a vow of everlasting love.
The Swan Princess includes the vocal talents of Jack Palance, John Cleese, Steven Wright, Sandy Duncan and Michelle Nicastro. The 25 anniversary Blu-ray release includes an all-new featurette entitled “A Look Back, Tease Ahead,” plus a variety of additional archival features.
