The story takes us to the eve of Princess Rose’s 18th birthday ( I think the release on the 18th of August is not just a coincidence). Everyone in the kingdom has come to Fantabularasa Castle to celebrate including Snow White, the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella and Red Riding Hood. But just before the stroke of midnight Bobo, the youngest dwarf, accidentally pricks the finger of Princess Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) with a cursed needle and sends the kingdom into a century-long slumber! To find Rose’s true love Jack to save her with a kiss, Bobo and the other six dwarfs must go on a treacherous journey, face a fiery dragon and outwit the jealous, scheming and evil witch, Dellamorta!
While our little one loved watching this release, I think the story went through some modern upgrade, adding new features that now stories has shows and jokes which are quite sophisticated for young audience. Not everything is straightforward as bad characters are not that bad and good one sometime not so brave as used to be. One thing we loved for sure are the songs coming out very often. Our boy liked Bobo and how he was able to handle different tough situations. There is also a good team work in the movie. The quality of this CG-animated motion picture is amazing, we loved all characters and actions even though we watched just a DVD version.
The Seventh Dwarf DVD contains the following bonus features:
- Character Profiles
- Downloadable Royal Birthday Invitation
