If you have spent any time around the Disney Junior Channel lately, you no doubt have seen the newest Princess on the Block, Sofia the First. My daughter’s, as you can imagine, are soooo in love with Sofia. And now that she is available on DVD starting March 5, 2013, they are over the moon to have a copy in their house!
When Sofia’s mom marries the king, she’s whisked off to the castle, where she learns what it means to be a true princess. In addition to learning how to fit in with her new family including her step-father, King Roland II, and step-siblings, Amber and James, Sofia quickly discovers that looking like a princess isn’t all that difficult, but possessing the characteristics of a true princess – honesty, loyalty, courage, independence, compassion and grace – is what makes one truly royal. While living in a captivating world of castles, wizards and flying horses, Sofia is a relatable peer-to-peer princess who is experiencing many of the same social situations as young viewers at home – learning how to fit in, making new friends and conquering new skills. Helping her in her journey are the three headmistresses of Royal Prep Academy – Fauna, Flora and Merryweather (thebeloved fairies seen in Disney’s classic “Sleeping Beauty”); the royal steward, Baileywick; and a group of cute woodland creatures including a rabbit named Clover; as well as Cinderella, a classic Disney Princess, who makes a special visit to offer Sofia words of wisdom.
My girls got wind of this show when it premiered in January of 2013 and now I have to record it on DVD. I, myself, love it because of it’s not only a movie, but includes a Royal Sing A Long as well! With characters voiced by Ariel Winter (ABC TV’s “Modern Family”) as Sofia, Sara Ramirez (ABC TVs “Grey’s Anatomy”) as Queen Miranda, Wayne Brady (TV’s “Let’s Make A Deal”) as Clover and Tim Gunn (TV’s “Project Runway”) as Baileywick, you will recognize some of your favorites too!
Our DVD even came with a Princess in Training Activity Kit with Stickers and Tiaras and it was a blast to see my girls dance around, singing the songs and pretending to meet Cinderella too! Because Sofia gets to in this full length movie!
Starting March 5, 2013, you can pick up this fun movie in stores and online! You can even save $6 on Amazon by PreOrdering Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess and a participating title! All movies your kids will love!
