News & Interviews for The Trumpet of the Swan
Critic Reviews for The Trumpet of the Swan
Too bad the director didn't set his mind to making a film parents could enjoy, too.
Passable animation for the younger members of the family, but the movie never finds its own voice.
One ugly duckling of a cartoon.
Audience Reviews for The Trumpet of the Swan
That's the sound of romance!
A proud pair of Trumpet Swans give birth to a baby swan that unfortunately grows up without a voice that his parents can hear or understand. One day he comes across a silver trumpet that gives him a voice that allows him to communicate. He restores his place in the flock but trouble with humans is afoot.
"We did it! An egg! My egg!"
Terry Noss (Dennis the Menace and the Swan Princess) and Richard Rick (Black Cauldron and The Fox and the Hound) collaborate to deliver The Trumpet of the Swan. The storyline for this picture is average and on par with Swan Princess. The animation is just okay and the voices were provided by Jason Alexander, Reece Witherspoon, Seth Green, and Joe Montegna.
"I haven't got to the part about objections yet."
I came across this on HBOGO and decided it may be a fun movie to watch with my daughter. She adored it beginning to end. I cannot say this is anything special, or worth purchasing, but it is worth a viewing once with your child.
"Go easy on the baked beans."
Even though there are only a few appeals, the animated adaptation of another E.B. White's novel is a film for youngsters like the ones who watch another kiddie show "Dragon Tales." (C+)
Without a doubt, the worst animated film I have ever seen. Music so bad it's scary, a plot that makes absolutely no sense, awful voice syncing, and, worst of all, the worst line in cinema history.
"Is it time for recess yet?" -The Teacher (in the most obnoxious voice ever)
