Product Overview
When a privileged but sheltered princess (Fiona Perry) is threatened by a breach of palace security, her mother the Queen (Kim Little) makes the decision to send her to America where she has an aunt (Bobbi Jo Lathan) living in the heartland, far from suspicious eyes and hands. Once there, immersed in the “normal” culture, forced to pretend she is the opposite of herself, a normal little girl, our princess naturally has trouble making friends, at least of the human variety; when she discovers a carnival pony, however, it's love at first sight. But this love is soon threatened when the ne'er-do-well carnival owner (Bill Oberst Jr.) discovers her true identity, thus her true worth.

This is a parable about virtue and friendship modernized for today's kids while retaining enough classical elements to feel timeless. The script, by director Rachel Lee Goldenberg (Sherlock Holmes) and Bill Parker, is balanced nicely between sentimental and adventurous, hitting all the right emotional chords. The result is a fun, sweet, lively and uplifting film that the whole family can enjoy.


  • Starring: Fiona Perry of DISNEY’S HIDDEN BEAUTY, Bill Oberst, Jr. from THE SECRET LIVES OF BEES and Kim Little from DIAGNOSIS MURDER.
  • Bonus Material: Making of Featurette and Gag Reel
