The latest entry from Curiosity, The pirate princess tells the story of a toddler princess who runs aground on an island ruled by a serious but affectionate pirate captain who, with his motley crew, teams up to raise the child.
“The pirate princess is a classic fairy tale with a contemporary attitude, ”said Hicks. “It has the potential to emotionally connect with audiences, delivering unexpected twists on timeless moral messages about family loyalty, staying true to who you are, and being brave. It will be a musical adventure on the big screen that can be enjoyed by all ages. “
