When The Princess was removed from the streaming platform in the summer of this year, it became difficult to find any accessible way to view the movie as the streamer revealed no immediate plans for its return in other capacities. Despite the surprising removal from Hulu and Disney+, The Princess was not the only movie or TV show to endure this treatment, as many other original projects were shockingly removed. Since then, six of those Disney+ and Hulu projects became available on video-on-demand, including The One and Only Ivan, Crater, Cheaper By The Dozen, and Flora & Ulysses.

Now available digitally, The Princess has another shot to become a hit with viewers. Hopefully, new viewers will respond well as The Princess becomes available on streaming to showcase a fantasy-like storyline and violent brouhaha.
