TPToA Podcast 278 – The Princess

Get ready to royally rumble and KICK SOME ASS as we check out the 2022 martial arts action romp; The Princess! Given that it is streaming on Disney Plus here in Australia, that makes Joey King a bonafide Disney Princess, though definitely not the kind you were expecting folks!

Join Jill and Peta as they cast off the shackles of Patriarchal Society (as represented by Dion and Quinny) and then use them to beat the snot out of all comers (The shackles, not D and Q)!

An action-packed fight to the death set in a fairy tale world, “The Princess” is directed by Le-Van Kiet (“Furie”) and stars Emmy Award® nominee Joey King (“The Act,” “The Kissing Booth”) as a beautiful, strong-willed princess who refuses to wed the cruel sociopath to whom she is betrothed, and is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With her scorned, vindictive suitor intent on taking her father’s throne, the princess must protect her family and save the kingdom. The movie also stars Dominic Cooper (“Preacher”), Olga Kurylenko (“Black Widow”), and Veronica Ngo (“The Old Guard”). “The Princess” is directed by Le-Van Kiet, written by Ben Lustig (“The Thirst”) & Jake Thornton (“Final Fantasy”), and produced by Neal H. Moritz (the “Fast and Furious” franchise), Toby Jaffe (“Total Recall”) and Derek Kolstad (“John Wick”), with Joey King and Guy Riedel (“Spectral”) serving as executive producers.

the concept is great, the execution not so much
The Princess who rescues herself by being a badass martial artist is a great hook for a film. Unfortunately this one muddies the waters with extraneous plot and in doing so pays the ultimate price.
