Siblings Snow White (Demetra Zorbas) and Rose Red (Callista Zorbas) live a carefree life in a house in the forest with their parents (Irene McMahon Foster, Matt Beekman), until one day they meet Prince Ferdinand (Angelo Polito), a boy who can also turn into a wolf, and as they become friends, Ferdinand gives them, among other things, a magical book of fairy tales that all come true. So they meet the Fairy Queen (Skyler O'Malley), who teaches them to believe in magic, Alice (Cordelia Padovan), who they help fight the Jabberwocky and befriend the Queen of Hearts (Kaylee O'Malley), Rapuzel (Madeline Balta), whom they save from the tall tree a wizard (Devin Funnye) has banned her to, they reveal to Little Red Riding Hood (Sasha Greenberg) that the wolf in her grandma's house is just their friend Prince Ferdinand, they help Cinderella (Amina Theis) find meaning in life that goes beyond marrying Prince Charming (Daniel Batista), and finally they reconcile the Fairy Queen with her brother (Andrew Balog).

 

Now it should be stressed here that the target audience for this film is young (pre-school) children, so don't expect any big insights here let alone post-modernist re-interpretations, and also all the conflicts in its segments are easily solvable in a peaceful way, and are not designed to discomfort let alone shock its young audience, plus all segments carry a message that's summed up at the end of each. And bearing that in mind, where the movie does actually succeed is to give its outdoor settings a magic aura and to create a certain sense of wonder on a presumably modest budget, and without the help of overpowering spectacle. Now it might help to enjoy this to be in pre-school age, but that said, it's a charming film with its heart in the right place.
