Princess Power

Princess Power season 1





Kennedy Unthank

TV Series Review

Look out, Disney princesses; there’s a new group of royal girls saving the day.

The four princesses—Penny, Rita, Kira and Bea—represent four “fruitdoms,” and they’re set on making sure everything and everyone within the realm happy and/or safe. That entails helping a blind girl play soccer, fixing a power outage and even saving a beached whale. And each of the girls brings her own skillset to each mission.

The skillset differences are not just intentional, but the whole point: Princess Power aims to celebrate our differences. It’s based on Savannah Guthrie’s book Princesses Wear Pants, a story which advocates that it’s not what you wear that makes a difference—it’s what you do. And these princesses certainly do a whole lot of good by helping others.

Like many other TV series made for children, Princess Power showcases a group of younglings working together in order to better their community. It teaches the importance of of doing good, helping others and being respectful.

It should be noted, however, that Bea’s adoptive parents are two gay men who make a few central appearances throughout a handful of episodes. So while Princess Power may have some good messages about community and putting others first, it also contains some other messages that you may not want your kids absorbing.

Kira’s hamster gets stuck up the chimney, and the princesses must work together to save the day. But when Penny uses a durable bubble to lift the hamster out of the chimney, they must figure out how to safely pop it.

General peril is present, though no danger befalls any characters.

Though he was born in Kansas, Kennedy Unthank studied journalism at the University of Missouri. He knew he wanted to write for a living when he won a contest for “best fantasy story” while in the 4th grade. What he didn’t know at the time, however, was that he was the only person to submit a story. Regardless, the seed was planted. Kennedy collects and plays board games in his free time, and he loves to talk about biblical apologetics and hermeneutics. He doesn’t think the ending of Lost was “that bad.”
