MBE partnered with Sony Pictures for this story

Movie Review

If you've got young children at your house I'm especially glad you're reading this post. That's because Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Nest Entertainment released the family-friendly The Swan Princess Christmas on DVD for the holidays that is now available exclusively at Walmart. A CD with the movie's soundtrack is sold separately.

Since I received the opportunity to watch and review it I'd like to share my reactions with you on this enchanting children's picture. 

Christmas may be 11 months away now, but this is so charming and engaging that I think youngsters and whole families will enjoy watching this year round together. In this rendition, Princess Odette, Prince Derek and their woodland friends are back in an all-new Christmas celebration adventure. Beautifully presented, the DVD features music by Anna Graceman from TV's "America's Got Talent."
