Every girl at some point dreamt of being a princess. Whether you’re a small child or even in your teenage years. We are always on the look out for our prince charming or knight in shining armor. Imagining ourselves to live a princess life, living in a castle and acting all royalty wearing nice pretty dresses and a crown to match. Snow White, Ariel, Belle (Beauty & The Beast) and Cinderella are some of the princesses we grew up with, making us want to become one ourselves.
Aminin, when we were kids we never really understood much the idea behind the love angle in every princess’ story. Maybe because we were too young to relate to that and focused more on the idea of becoming a princess. Good news for all parents and kids alike! Disney introduces its first little girl princess with the debut of “Sofia the First: Once Upon A Princess,” an enchanting, music-filled animated Disney Junior television movie for the whole family.
Set in the storybook world of Enchancia, the movie introduces Sofia, an average girl whose life suddenly transforms when her mother marries the king and she becomes a princess, Sofia the First. Sofia must learn to navigate the extraordinary life of royalty while holding on to her own hopes and dreams. Her journey to being the best she can be also paves the way for those around her to realize how special they each are. Disney’s Cinderella makes an appearance in the movie to offer Sofia some words of wisdom – princess to princess.
Sofia’s royal adventure begins as she prepares to move into the castle with her mom, starting a new family with her step-father, King Roland II, and step-siblings, Amber and James. Helping Sofia in her journey are the three headmistresses of Royal Prep Academy – Fauna, Flora and Merryweather (the beloved fairies seen in Disney’s classic “Sleeping Beauty”) and royal steward, Baileywick, as well as a group of cute woodland creatures led by a wise-talking rabbit, Clover. Sofia soon discovers that looking like a princess isn’t all that difficult, but displaying honesty, loyalty, courage, independence, compassion and grace is what makes one truly royal.

Created for kids and their families, the stories of “Sofia the First” communicate positive messages and life lessons that are applicable to young children. While she lives in a captivating world of castles, wizards and flying horses, Sofia remains a relatable peer-to-peer princess who is experiencing many of the same social situations as young viewers at home including learning how to fit in, making new friends and mastering new skills.
Alongside the debut of “Sofia the First: Once Upon A Princess”, Disney Channel and Disney Junior will launch the DisneyChannel-asia.com and DisneyJunior-Asia.com/Sofia website featuring a fully immersive royal experience.
