News From the Kingdom

The New Year is traditionally a time to check in with ourselves and make New Year's Resolutions- goals that we would like to accomplish through the year, and see how we did reaching last year's goals.

Our new argyle fabric colors are finally in stock! We love that the teal blue is the same as the accents on Odette's dress and the black and red are the colors from Odile's dress. The black and red argyle features some of your favorite villains like Rothbart, Odile, and Zelda and, if you look close, you'll see the argyle is designed a little off balance in symmetry reflecting the villains' zany personalities. The teal blue fabric features your favorite Swan Princess heroes like Odette, Derek, Speed, and JeanBob.
This polyester blend fabric can be sewn into so many fun projects! You can make clothing, accessories, pet toys, and even furniture upholstery and cushions!

This year at The Swan Princess we have been working hard to move all of our inventory into a brand new warehouse! Preparations for this have included organizing all of our art cels and pencil sketches for easier transport and storage. As we have been sorting through the incredible animation museum that is our warehouse, we have found some really incredible and unique pieces of Swan Princess history that were just too swanderful to not share with our amazing fans! Therefore, we would like to proudly present our new series:

Awesome Things We Found in the Warehouse Today!

To start us off for January, we have some special pencil sketches from the song 'No Fear' in the first The Swan Princess film. Have you ever wondered what Rothbart's book was about? The one JeanBob accidentally pulls off the bookshelf and runs across? Well we have the answer! 
These are the pencil sketches used to create each page of the book. This one shows a drawing of the solar system. with the sun labeled "Sol" the Latin word for sun.
This page depicts circular symbols that are commonly used in traditional medicine in relation to energy and energy healing and transference.
This page has a picture of a very superhero-looking man with the label 'Dracule'. Translated from Latin it is the name Dracula.
And finally we have a picture of a cute little rabbit labeled 'Wabbit or Beast?'. I think it's safe to say this book was a research book Rothbart used to learn how to transform into the Great Animal.
You can purchase these one-of-a-kind swan princess art pieces, or another pencil sketch or art cel by emailing odette@swanprincessseries.com

This month we are celebrating the birthday of Lord Rogers! He has a zodiac sign of a Capricorn and the garnet as his birthstone.
Capricorns are known for being responsible, disciplined, and excellent managers of both themselves and others. They have good self control and make wonderful leaders. They also tend to have a bit of a know-it-all attitude that can make them condescending and sarcastic. 
Capricorns like family, tradition, and quality in both people and innovations. Capricorns dislike, well, everything at some point. But that is what makes a compliment from a Capricorn so sincere!
The garnet is a stone that represents and attracts prosperity and abundance. Its beautiful deep red color is a powerful stone that can bring good luck in a new job or in reaching your goals.
We think this sounds exactly like Lord Rogers!

Question: How did Speed and JeanBob meet each other and become friends?
Answer: Speed lost his way in the forest while trying to return to the sea, when he ran into JeanBob and they decided to travel together and became friends.
This was answered by Odette in a featurette on our YouTube channel:

Dear Diary:

Another new year truly makes me grateful for the friends and family I’ve been able to have in my life, especially since there have been a lot of hardships that nearly took them away from me. There is one family member, however, that I don't know as well as I would like to. My mother. She passed away when I was born, and my father was always so hesitant to talk about her. He would rather talk about my future than the past. I loved his support and caring but I do feel that I missed getting to hear stories of a wonderful woman. So for my New Year's Resolution, I want to find out more about my mother. What was she like? How were her days in the kingdom? How did she come to marry my father? Was it a love match or an arranged marriage? I need to know all of it. The problem is… I don’t even know where to even start looking. I just wish there was some clue, a sign, anything that could place me on the right path. Well, it is a good thing the year is just beginning.
