'Ice Princess' trailer hits the web. The promo for Michelle Trachtenberg's family-friendly Disney movie is now available for viewing.
As one can tell from the trailer, the movie is meant to be accessible to a younger audience. And it seems to follow in the tradition of other Disney based movies. i.e., awkward girl overcomes adversity in pursuit of her dreams. It's a formula that Disney tends to use quite a bit. Yet at the same time, it's a message that a younger audience tends to enjoy, and it often proves to be a recipe for success.
That said, the movie itself looks potentially cute, and Disney seems to have gotten real-world ice skaters involved in the production (for example, Michelle Kwan is in the trailer).
On a random level, I smiled ironically when I heard the opening notes of 'Ice, Ice, Baby' built into the trailer. I'm glad the actual score will be by Christophe Beck rather than Vanilla Ice :)
