His refusal to align himself with the dark forces causes the witch to cast an evil spell that transforms Valemon into an enormous polar bear. While escaping north to the icy kingdom of
Winterland, Valemon falls in love with a beautiful, young princess who sees beyond his frightening appearance to the kindness within. It is up to the princess to prevent the witch’s wicked scheme, rescue Valemon and break the spell on the Polar Bear King.
“The Polar Bear King,” like most fantasy tales, contains a princess, prince, kings, queens and, of course, an evil witch who casts a spell.

At midnight each night he becomes human again for a short time.As the new king in his polar bear form finds his true love, other forces fight against the couple. But as in most fairy tales, good prevails over evil and the couple live happily ever after.
