Empress & Aniya, by Candice Carty-Williams

adventurous emotional hopeful fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Oh, what a treat EMPRESS AND ANIYA is — a true testament to the sense of home that can grow between friends. I want to see it as a Disney Channel original movie (à la FREAKY FRIDAY) because it has all the components to succeed: it warms the heart & involves magic & touches on family and growing up. Giving it 3.5 stars only because it deserves to be twice as long!
