Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess

09 May 2013

I think I can speak for the majority when I say that at one point in every girl's life, she has dreamed of being a princess. Being a girly girl who loved flouncy dresses and fancy shoes when I was young, I had countless daydreams of living in a castle and being treated like royalty. ♥

My daydreams were like sweet escapes inspired by scenes taken straight out of books and movies, and my favorite stories are those of Sara Crewe and Princess JasmineThere's just a different state of calm that can be achieved by watching a Disney Princess movie, don't you think? Even now, when I feel stressed, I watch a Disney Princess movie and get transported to a magical and happy place where everything is possible.

It's nice to know that amidst our rapid-paced world, Disney still comes up with new materials like Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess to inspire our new aspiring Princesses.

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.
The movie will premiere on May 19 at 11am on Disney Channel and on May 27 at 1pm on Disney Junior! I definitely won't miss this, never mind that I am a 27 year old lady. Are you going to watch as well? Round up kids to watch with you! Don't forget to share your thoughts about the movie! ♥
