Hey everyone ^_^ Steph here. I'm so cuted-out I found this community whilst on the hunt for A Little Princess icons. The movie's always been very close to my heart.

*When did you first see the film?*
Oh God... it had to be ages ago. The movie came out in, what, 1995? I think I was about seven when my mum first rented it from the video store for me. I watched it over and over again like I was hypnotised, and then when it was on television, we taped it after Jumunji ^^. The reason I'm once again back into the film is because I found the video after so long and rewatched it... fell in love with the film all over again.

*What is your favorite scene?*
Oh dear, which to choose... well when I was little, and Sarah and Beckie awaken to find their room filled with what they wished for, I was always like "OH MY GOOOSH MAGIC ^_^" I absolutely loved seeing that part, even though a small part of my stomach contorted at knowing what was to come later.

*Who is your favourite character?*
Believe it or not, Miss Minchin. Okay, obviously I wouldn't have said that when I was little, but nowadays, I see how fantastically this cold headmistress is portrayed by the actress, and she is a perfect antagonist for the film, playing the part so naturally and not too overdone. I used to have a teacher in primary school that was a lot like her, so ^^; I know what the face of evil is like!! RAWR!

*Do you have a favorite quote?*
Lottie: I want a big piece!
Lavinia: Oh hush up, Lottie! I'm sure Princess Sara will give everyone a fair share. Right, Princess?
Lottie: D: I told her that's what you were...
Sara Crewe: Well, not just me, all girls are princesses. Even snotty, two-face bullies like you, Lavinia!

Oh, I wish I could've gotten away with lines like that xD

*What do you enjoy most about the film?*
The soundtrack. It is my favourite soundtrack to this day, with the uncanny ability to make me bawl my eyes out even without the movie footage. I think it is beautifully genius and definitely, definitely makes the movie the emotional journey it is.

I'm new to the community and thought I should post an introduction, so I've filled out the survey. It's great to find other fans of this movie/book - it's one of my favourites.

*When did you first see the film?*

A while after it was released on video. I'm not sure why I didn't see it in the cinema.
I wish I had because it must have looked beautiful on the big screen.

*What is your favorite scene?*

It's not a scene, as such, but that shot of Sara and Becky in India on the statue, dressed in white with all the water and nature all around them. It's gorgeous.

*Who is your favorite character?*

Sara herself, even more so in the book. Her journey is so inspiring.

*Do you have a favorite quote?*

"I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren't pretty, or smart, or young. They're still princesses. All of us." - Sara Crew

*What do you enjoy most about the film?*

That it encourages the use of imagination and storytelling.

This is not the most orthodox post in this community, but it is certainly relevant and entertaining!
From one of my favorite sites, NotAlwaysRight, about hilarious interactions in the customer service industry:


Customer: “I need to buy something for my 12 year old niece. I’d like a classic.”

(I show her the classics.)

Customer: “Oh! The Little Princess! What’s this about?”

(I tell her the story.)

Customer: “Sounds good…” *turns to her daughter* “So honey, we’re buying this for Monica, because she’s a spoiled brat, her parents treat her like a princess, and we want her to learn what it’s like to have nothing! Doesn’t that sound good?”

Hello everyone! It's your mod here. I just wanted to make a post to say that some changes are taking place within the community. First off, I've started tagging all previous posts and will continue to do so with any new posts that come along. Second, I've uploaded crackified's gorgeous mood theme for use in the community, so don't forget to show us what mood you're in when you post from now on. Third, I'll be making a lot of changes to the layout and the profile, hopefully for the better. And lastly, I just wanted to announce that we've reached 50 members! Congratulations, and thank you guys so much for making all_girls_are such a wonderful place to be.

Hullo, everyone! I just finished watching the movie and I plan on making and posting icons very soon! But I thought I'd take the little intro survey before I did. :)

*When did you first see the film?*
Oh, gosh, I don't even remember! Probably when it first came out on VHS. I must have watched it at least 50 times when I was a little girl.

*What is your favorite scene?*
Um, all of them? But if I have to choose, I'd say...the spinning scene. The spinning, the snow, that beautiful song...it's all so simple and magical. It literally gave me goosebumps when I watched it tonight. I feel like that kind of scene would probably have gotten the cut (or never have been filmed in the first place) in other films.

*Who is your favorite character?*
Assuming Sara is given, I'd probably say Becky. She's so adorable.

*Do you have a favorite quote?*
When Becky wakes up to a feast and robes, etc.: "I think you went a little too far this time."

*What do you enjoy most about the film?*
It's visually spectacular, for one thing. It's also emotionally haunting; there has never been one single time I've watched this movie and NOT cried. It's not even possible.
