About The Swan Princess
The Swan Princess is one of the strongest animated Princess franchises in the world! It was the #1 selling video in the United States upon its original release and with its sequels has sold millions of copies globally. Distributed by SONY Pictures Worldwide, the original film was one of the last animated feature films to be made entirely of the traditional, hand-drawn animation. With the addition of its sequels, The Swan Princess is one of only a few major franchises with 8 or more 80-minute length movies. Swan Princess Partners continues to focus on creating and producing family content that is value driven, which has resulted in a huge base of fans throughout the world who remember the films fondly and can sing, by heart, many of the fantastic songs from the series, including the Golden Globe nominated song of love lasting “Far Longer Than Forever.” They constantly find millennials who proclaim that “I grew up with The Swan Princess!” and they are excited to learn that the company is continuing to tell her stories.
