Trivia

In the book Isle of the Lost, which serves as a prequel to this movie, Mal dreams of a handsome prince on a picnic, while Ben dreams of a lavender-haired girl with green eyes. This is never mentioned in the film, but when Ben first meets Mal, he pauses in what looks like a moment of recognition. Mal, however, never shows any recognition of him from her dream. See more »

The movie has a nice story, nice plot .. unpredictable ending .. and yeah .. the singing thingy was a little unnecessary :P
2 August 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

So a TV movie by Disney channel,, the idea is new and kinda genuine, at first you'd think the plot is rigid and predictable but it really do has some unpredictability in the final scenes. The script is fine,,the experience of the writers has actually Flourished in this type of mini-series/TV movies which gave them an advantage.

There is only this thing i kinda hated or more like "disliked" about the movie which is the singing and dancing thingy !! well it's a bit shaggy and disorient the viewer even if it was a 9 year old kid sitting a 24/7 on Disney.. Thank god for the fast-forward bless ;) but to be fair,, other than the singing part,, the movie could have actually made a big fuss if it opened on the big screen ..

As for the cast ,, they were mostly fine .. for a Disney channel cast they looked like a stars there.

So overall,, the movie is nice .. watchable in a family night .. if you have an FF button on your remote you'll use it 3 times i think during the songs , well unless you have little kids then you're screwed :D but seriously thou ,, it is cool.
