Last November, Disney introduced its first-ever little girl princess with the premiere of the TV movie, “Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess.”
Following the success of the movie, Disney created a television series that follows Princess Sofia on her adventures. In the premiere episode, Sofia strives to become the first princess to join her school’s all-male flying derby team. She pursues the role with determination while learning to believe in herself and in anything she sets her mind to.
Throughout the show, she tackles such obstacles as making new friends, dealing with bullies, and trying to fit in. She presents herself as a strong role model for children, learning about important values like kindness, honesty, and loyalty. Older Disney princesses Ariel, Aurora, Belle, and Jasmine also appear in the series to offer Sofia advice.
Catch the first episode tomorrow morning at 9:30 a.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel and at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Junior. For a sneak preview of what to expect from the series, watch the video below:
To coincide with the series premiere, Disney has also released a Sofia the First app for iOS users. The app follows the show’s opening storyline and includes illustrations, interactive animations, and digital features that allow kids to create and record their own personal stories. Sofia the First: Story Theater is available at the iTunes store.
