The Swan Princess

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Swan Princess is a 1994 American-Russian animated musical movie. The movie has the voice talents of Jack Palance, John Cleese, Steven Wright and Sandy Duncan.

In the United States, The Swan Princess was distributed under New Line Cinema. Outside the United States, the distributor was DreamWorks Pictures.[1]

The Swan Princess was released on November 18, 1994. The critics' reviews for the movie were mixed. It only took in $9.8 million over a $21 million budget.[2] That meant the movie had a substandard box office intake. However, the movie later became popular with video releases. It has since received nine sequels, which were released in 1997, 1998, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020.

The theme song "Far Longer than Forever" was sung by Regina Belle and Jeffrey Osborne. It was nominated for a Golden Globe Award in 1995 for the Best Original Song.[3]
