Synopsis

When Prince Siegfried spots a beautiful swan with a crown on its head, for some reason he feels compelled to follow it. He discovers that the swan is, in fact, a princess named Odette, who is under a wizard's curse that causes her to become a swan by day. The wizard, Rothbart, wants to keep Odette to himself, and the only thing that can break the spell on Odette is a man who truly loves her, with all his heart and soul...

One of my childhood favorites!! I wrote down that I watched it 20 times, but truthfully I probably watched it many more times than that ^.^

While not entirely faithful, the main plot doesn't deviate much from the original Swan Lake story. However, the wonderful character development, the way the mood seamlessly slips from light-hearted comedy to heartfelt romance (and everything in between), and even the little quirky characters like that squirrell that chewed through a bunch of wooden handles make this movie one of the most memorable I've ever seen.

Since the movie was made in 1981, the art is a bit ...

This movie had a soft fairy tale vibe that flew along the famous Tchaikovsky theme of the same name.

The thing is that Siegfried, a prince of a kingdom nearby gets an interest on the pretty bird on the lake, the rest, as they say, is history.

I found interesting the fact that they used the wizard as a friendly ...

One of many classic stories that Toei turned into a movie during this period of time - this time a loose adaptation of the ballet Swan Lake.

Compared to some of the other similar feature-length movies, Swan Lake has somewhat higher production values, and it takes full advantage of the orchestral score by Tchaikovsky throughout. However, they do take some liberties with the story in order to cast it towards a younger audience, such as turning the primary antagonist into somewhat of a bumbling oafish wizard. And also Disney-fying two little squirrel characters to help move the plot ...
