Gaston has captured King Triton in his quest to rule all of the realms in “LEGO Disney Princess: The Castle Quest.” Using the Magic Mirror, Gaston sets a trap for five Disney princesses, Snow White, Rapunzel, Tiana, Moana and Ariel. The five must complete three tasks to defeat Gaston after his lust for power has caused major problems in every realm that he has conquered. But when the five princesses work together, they learn more about themselves and the castle where they are gathered.

Much like the other straight to streaming LEGO content, this special was a lot of fun, as long as viewers don’t take it too seriously. It’s a fun way to get five Disney princesses, who only would’ve had the small interaction in “Ralph Breaks the Internet,” together for a fun special presentation. Plus it mixes plenty of other Disney classics too with the additions of Iago and Magic Carpet, as well as some “Peter Pan” characters.

This special gives viewers the best version of Snow White Disney has ever produced. The princess is often ridiculed for not doing much in her own film. She mostly just runs away and eats a poison apple. However, in this LEGO special, she is gung ho with her ax. She is a survivor that has played a major role and reclaims her agency. While the original Snow White was exactly what 1937 needed, I enjoyed this Snow White more. And given what we’ve seen leak out about the upcoming live action Snow White, I’m expecting this to remain my favorite version of the character.

I really enjoyed seeing how many voice actors returned for these LEGO roles. Obviously the ones from “Snow White” wouldn’t be able to return nearly 90 years later, but many of the more modern ones returned. Original voice actors for Ariel, Tiana, Rapunzel, Moana, Gaston, and the Wardrobe all returned. It was a lot of fun and something that brought a nice connective tissue to the special.

I love the LEGO specials, because I know to just have fun with them and to not take them seriously. This wasn’t as much fun for me as the Star Wars LEGO specials, but I think that’s just because of the appeal of Star Wars versus the appeal of princesses. I hope anyone looking to have a silly time enjoys this special.
