PRINCESS EMMY TO REIGN ON DVD & DIGITAL on OCTOBER 15, 2019 FROM SHOUT! KIDS
It’s a gift fit for a queen… Princess Emmy reigns supreme on October 15, when she bows on DVD and digital via Shout! Kids! The new animated feature is voiced by Ruby Barnhill (The BFG, Mary and the Witch’s Flower), Bella Ramsey (Game of Thrones, Netflix’s Hilda), Franka Potente (Run Lola Run, Bourne Identity), and John Hannah (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Mummy), and directed by Piet de Rycker (Laura’s Star, Little Polar Bear).
Princess Emmy is a young girl with a secret gift – she is the only one in the Kingdom of Kandis who can speak to horses. Up until now, life for Emmy has been wonderful: exploring and hanging out with her best friends – a stable full of horses; spending time with her family at the castle and not having a care in the world. That is, until her jealous, scheming cousin Gizana appears, challenging her at every turn, threatening Emmy’s chances of becoming an officially inaugurated princess and generally making her life hell. And on top of all that, Emmy must undergo the ultimate test to earn the right to keep her gift. If she fails, she loses the gift and her best friends forever. There is a huge amount at stake for such a little girl.
Princess Emmy is a sweet story for preschoolers and younger children. It’s about a down to earth little girl who happens to be a princess. She has a big heart and dearly loves her horses. In fact, she inherited a magical book and the ability to talk to horses. But, just like any family, there is always that relative who is mean, jealous and bitterly miserable. Emmy has to tolerate the abuse her cousin Gizana inflicts on her and the castle. Plus, Emmy is in danger of losing her equine talents if her invitation to the royal ball is rescinded. But, Emmy is brave and will not give up.
