This original work is based on the classic tale of Sleeping Beauty, but with a "Prince Charming" from the 21st century who is more computer nerd than dashing hero. Rooben, an oddball scientist, accidentally activates his latest invention, a time machine. Charles, a socially awkward teenager, his younger sister Jinx, and Clyde, the family dog, are swept along with him to the kingdom of Dormir, a magical land of fairies, talking animals, and an evil sorceress who has placed a curse on Princess Crystalline to be fulfilled on her 16th birthday. The time travelers arrive on the very day the curse will come to pass. It is up to Charles to save the princess and break the spell.  But instead, his bungling ways backfire, bringing the safety of the entire modern world at risk.
