Q: If the were a live-action Swan Princess film created, who would be the ideal actors and actresses for each character roll?
A: We asked on Instagram about Odette, Rothbart, and Derek in particular. So far, a majority of fans have mentioned:
Princess Odette - Dove Cameron or Bethanie Garcia
Prince Derek - Derek Klena
Rothbart - Hugh Jackman or Gary Oldman
My personal opinion (not the studio's opinion) for the rest of the cast:
Puffin - David Tennant or Rowan Atkinson
Lord Rogers - David Tennant or Rowan Atkinson
JeanBob - Tim Curry
Queen Uberta - Meryl Streep
Speed - Honestly, Steven Wright again. He did such a wonderful job the first time!

Odette’s Diary Entry: Surprise Birthday Bash!
Today was one of the best birthdays I’ve ever had! When the day started it felt like it might be one of the worst. Usually, for my birthday, I am served breakfast in bed, given lots of hugs and sweet little presents. The Kingdom is full of life and light! But today everyone seemed distant. When I said hello to people in the castle out in the streets, they only mumbled a hello and made a fast exit. I barely had interactions with anyone for most of the day. Everyone I asked to spend time with me today already had other plans. It was so depressing that I almost didn’t even go to dinner. Bridget then came to me worrying about one of her normal problems. She had gotten a knife stuck in the table and needed help getting it out. I guess she tried to set the table again. We went to the dining hall, and suddenly there was a lot of noise! People yelling and confetti flying. There were horns and poppers and everywhere I turned someone was excitedly shouting “surprise”. Wow, they went to so much work! There were hundreds of people waiting throughout the castle, in the ballroom and gardens. Just waiting to see me. Children throughout the kingdom got together and made an entire jewelry set (crown, necklace, earrings, and corsage) for me out of flowers. There was a tall cake so beautifully decorated in my favorite colors. Everyone wanted to hug me and kiss my cheeks. We had a wonderful dinner, played games, danced and had fireworks! I have never felt more loved by my family, friends, and my people than I did tonight.
