The Ruby Princess Runs Away
Every girl wants to be a princess, doesn’t she? Not Roxanne (Michelle Horn). She’d rather climb trees and run in the meadows than rule the Red Mountains. When Gallivant the Wizard arrives to crown the four Jewel Princesses, that’s Roxanne’s cue to run. She leaps out of her palace window into a very big adventure. With the help of Twitter (Cork Hubbert) and Hapgood the Dragon (voice of Harvey Korman), Roxanne battles the evil darklings, foils the imposter Princess Rudgrin and saves the kingdom. Full of fantasy, friendship and song, “The Ruby Princess Runs Away” is truly a royal adventure!
Roxanne doesn’t want to be a princess: that’s the premise of this story. The antics and lengths she goes to in order to escape being crowned princess are the warp and woof of this video. Roxanne jumps out of the palace window, escaping into the woods, where she meets the evil darklings: men in black capes with macabre white faces, standing over a cauldron while singing about switching their candidate for princess, upon whom they’ve put a mask identical to Roxanne. There are some great scenes in which Roxanne learns that being a princess is “just being a good friend, and taking care of people.”
