Cross the drawbridge, step inside a dazzling castle and accompany Princess Aurora on her first new adventure since the cherished classic Sleeping Beauty. Then take a magic carpet ride to Agrabah where Jasmine and your favourite characters from the award-winning masterpiece Aladdin return for a whole new world of never-before-seen enchantment.

With magical storytelling, memorable new songs and beloved characters, this delightful gem celebrates the power of believing in yourself. Spend some golden moments with the Disney Princesses as they discover that when you Follow Your Dreams...they just might come true!


Let’s see, the last time I checked: I am well above 25 years old, I am a straight guy, and I love noisy action blockbusters which doesn’t require me to think too much. So why am I endorsing this DVD which features two of Disney’s favorite princesses?

Because the themes explored in these two short animated episodes remind me of how idealistic, simple and nice things were when I was a kid. And how dreams can actually come true if you worked hard enough.

In this 56-minute disc, Princess Aurora (from Sleeping Beauty) and Princess Jasmine (from Aladdin) take viewers on a journey inside their storybook worlds. In “Keys to the Kingdom”, Princess Aurora is put in charge of the kingdom when her parents go on a conference. She realizes that the task may not be simple as it looks, and it’d be difficult not to use magic to make things right. In “More Than A Peacock Princess”, Princess Jasmine longs for a more important role in the kingdom, and is ultimately put to the test when her father’s beloved horse goes missing.

The more cynical viewers will be scorning these simplistic storylines, and laughing their heads off whenever the lovely princesses break into songs. But I beg to differ, because these tales are actually reminders of how we should lead our misguided lives.

Take Princess Aurora for example, whoever thought that the Sleeping Beauty had the ability to run the kingdom, albeit the mess created when she resorts to using magic to solve her problems? Ultimately, it’s the realization that she has to solve her own problems that counts.

And then there’s Princess Jasmine, who realizes that perseverance is of utmost importance when it comes to daunting tasks like, err, finding a lost horse. But in the name of proving one’s worth, hard work and self confidence are important traits to have too.

The animation may not be Pixar standard, but it is still decent enough to get the young ones hooked on this straight-to-video release. The melodic and catchy songs help to make the two episodes merrily fun too. And at the risk of having readers think that I’m childish/gay/too sensitive for my own good, I shall go ahead and say that I truly enjoyed this DVD.


This Code 3 DVD contains two games that will entertain young girls, but will probably bore any one older than eight years old. In “Aurora Dress-Up”, you can mix and match Princess Aurora’s outfit so that she looks good. In “Find Sahara”, you can help Princess Jasmine look for the missing horse by pointing to the correct clues and directions. There is also a music video “You’ll Never Lose This Love”, which features Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Included in the disc are Previews of other Disney flicks like The Fox and the Hound, The Fox and the Hound 2, The Jungle Book and an upcoming title Tinkerbell.


The disc’s visual transfer enhances the clean-cut animation which will appeal to young viewers, while there are Dolby Digital 5.1 English, Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish, Korean and Portuguese audio tracks to choose from.
