People say this is heavily cliched, and that it has terrible animation, but I think it has quite good animation, and that the execution will be alright.

Don't get me wrong, it could be as good as in a Disney movie, but what prevents it from doing so, is its trailer that once again feels more like a recap of the whole movie, and the initial portrayal of the princesses. Like, I know this is a parody, which is the only really good tolerant thing John Williams seems to make, aside from making some lame movies about chimpanzees in space f.e., but its premise is too unique for the movie to feel like a parody.

I don't really care about the animation or jokes or whatever, I just think it's a brilliant premise and conceit. Disney Princess by way of Jerry Springer. My biggest question is why nobody ever thought to do this specific idea years ago.
