A false story is circulating this week that Disney has announced ‘Princes’, an animated feature about two men who set off to rescue a princess but end up falling in love.

The ‘report’, which has been shared 60,000 times on Facebook, claims that it will be adapted from Jeffrey A. Miles’ children’s book The Princes and the Treasure, but while the book is real, the adaptation isn’t.

Amplifying Glass is a “satire” (I use the term loosely) site, which runs as a disclaimer:

“If you are looking for real breaking news stories, you have arrived at the wrong location. Nearly everything that we produce is designed to make you laugh and/or poke fun at the ridiculous nature of life in America. You would do well not to take anything that we say here too seriously.”
