This re-telling of the original Hans Christian Andersen tale adds some modern flair and tells the story of a quirky, game-loving, yet clueless leader.


The Emperor challenges the boy that asks for his daughter’s hand in marriage to beat him in some of his favorite games, including a live action game of chess!


Meantime, the royal fashion designer is afraid of losing her job to two crafty tailors who catch the Emperor and his court in their web of false beliefs.
