About “The Rainbow Prince”
This is a contemporary live-action fairy tale with a twist on “The Sleeping Beauty” story.
Rainbow, who changes colors with his feelings, is left on the castle steps of a King and Queen. Now a Prince, he is put to sleep by an evil Wizard and his dangerous cohort scheming to take over the kingdom. Rainbow is temporarily awakened for 21 years by the Mother of the Forest, a wise, powerful healing woman. A kiss from True Love is the sole remedy to reverse the spell forever. This happens to be from a beautiful Brown Princess. Marea must save the Prince and his entire kingdom.
