If you watch The Ellen DeGeneres Show, then you are already familiar with her frequent guests, Sophia Grace and Rosie. We don’t have cable so Sophia Grace & Rosie’s Royal Adventure was my first introduction to this talented pair of cousins. I was blown away at the voice on Sophia Grace! That little girl can really sing.
The movie begins with the girls heading with their chaperone from the Ellen show to cover a royal event in Switzelvania (a cross between Switzerland and Transylvania?). The king of Switzelvania is about to crown one of his three adult daughters as the new queen.
Sophia Grace and Rosie manage to get into the castle pretending to be relatives of the royal family. They meet the three sisters, uptight and cruel Imogen, ditzy Cordelia and sweet Abigail. Of course, they love Abigail and want to help her become queen. They have their own set of challenges to help her prepare though as Abigail is socially awkward and spends most of the movie in a super hero costume.
One of the sub plots of the movie is the chaperone of the girls from the Ellen show and her own set of challenges. She is beat from dealing with the high energy girls and passes out in the cab immediately after landing in Switzelvania. She loses the girls as well as all her identification. I would be freaking out if I was her, but I couldn’t help but laugh at some of the exaggerated situations she found herself in.
I especially enjoyed the musical scenes and was mesmerized by how talented Sophia Grace and Rosie are. They are quirky, cute and fun to watch. This movie is rated G and is fine for the whole family to watch. I think it would be enjoyed by the younger crowd like kids my nine-year-old daughter Bridget’s age and younger. I was surprised that I enjoyed it too and would love to see more Sophia Grace & Rosie movies made in the future. After the movie, I went on YouTube and looked up their viral videos. I can see why they are have become superstars!
