Movie Info

Filmed in Scandanavia, The Polar Bear King is a visualization of an old folk tale. A handsome prince is slated to marry the less-than-attractive Queen of Summerland. He refuses, whereupon she calls upon her skills as a sorceress. Transformed into a polar bear, the luckless prince must seek out a human to help him break the spell. Filling the bill is a beautiful princess, who joins the hirsute prince on a perilous journey back to Summerland. Though ostensibly family fare, The Polar Bear King does carry a PG rating, so please exercise your own judgement before screening this one for the kids. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

    Oh Norwegian folklore, you are bizarre indeed.

    Even though this fairy tale was based on an old Norwegian folktale, I bet I could have written a better script. And my goodness was this a low budget film or what? The polar bear looked like a bad animatronic in one of those haunted houses at the county fair. Other times he looked like a man in a suit. I think it would have been better if they used a real polar bear and if they had the polar bear and the princess have a relationship before they "fell in love." It was love at first sight and even in a fairy tale that makes me want to puke. Otherwise, it would have been a good movie.
