Lacks luster and pales in comparison to Disney's fairy tales, but is still enjoyable.
I like that she didn't wait to be saved, she actually did stuff. And the music is cute too

Uninspired, uncreative, basically a poor man's Disney cash in.

I still love the song about Prince Derek and Odette.
The Swan Princess is a 1994 American animated film based on the ballet "Swan Lake". Starring the voice talents of Jack Palance, John Cleese, Steven Wright, and Sandy Duncan, the film is directed by a former Disney animation director, Richard Rich, with a music score by Lex de Azevedo. The film was followed by two direct-to-video sequels: The Swan Princess II: Escape from Castle Mountain (1997) and The Swan Princess: The Mystery of the Enchanted Kingdom (1998). This is one of the only two animated films released by New Line Cinema; the other being 1989's Babar: The Movie.
The film begins with an aging king named William (Dakin Matthews) who has a daughter named Odette (Michelle Nicastro/Liz Callaway). His friend, the widowed Queen Uberta (Sandy Duncan) decide to have Odette and the Queen's son, Prince Derek (Adam Wylie/Howard McGillin), meet every summer with hopes they'd fall in love, so as to unite their kingdoms as one. At first, while Odette and Derek are still children, this fails...
