Ready to relive the warmth of modern-day fairy tales? In comes The Princess Diaries: 10th Anniversary Edition and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement on Blu-Ray. This three disc combo package features both the Blu-Ray versions of these movies and the DVD versions as well. It is packed with great extra features such as commentaries, a princess quiz, outtakes and bloopers, “Breakaway” music video by Kelly Clarkson and my favorite “Livin Like a Princess” featurette. If you haven’t seen either of these Disney movies let me give you a brief background on each of them.
The Princess Diaries is about a girl named Mia Thermopolis who is a living a normal teenage life who feels like she is a geek and invisible to all around her. She loves spending time with her mom, her best friend Lilly and Lilly’s brother Michael. She goes through the ups and downs of being in high school and dealing with the popular kids. Then her life begins to change when her grandmother appears and lets her in on a secret that she comes from a royalty background. All of sudden everything changes for Mia and she has a huge choice to make. Live her life as a normal teenager or take the throne as Princess to rule Genovia.
The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement picks up right where The Princess Diaries left off as Princess Mia who is the future queen of Genovia is living the dream but is still lacking what she has always wanted the magic of romance in her life. She soon discovers that she needs to marry right away or her entire family will lose the crown. She is tested as to what it takes to be a royal and to have it all including your dreams coming true.
It was wonderful watching The Princess Diaries movies with my family this time around since I was in college when they were first released in the theaters. The quirky comedy mixed in with life lessons are a great combination. The movies are rated G so the whole family can watch together. The Princess Diaries: 10th Anniversary Edition and The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement set first time ever on Blu-Ray is available now exclusively at Target. The suggested retail price for the Blu-Ray/DVD combo is $39.40.
