Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess


I often refer to my twins as ‘The Twincesses’, because the word describes them perfectly. They are in love with Disney, princesses, castles and all related. In their world of make-believe, they truly ARE the princesses.

Now-so even more with the debut of Disney’s Sofia the First.

One of my Twincesses, Sophia, is 100% convinced that she IS ‘Sofia the First’. She tells everyone that this show was made about her, and is very proud about that fact. Hey, who am I to argue with the magic of Disney and the hope and imagination that it gives my girls?


I must admit, my own little Sophia is a lot like the character in the show. Sofia is kind, caring, beautiful, and has a heart of Gold. Yep, that’s my girl too!

Sofia and her new adventures are winning the hearts of little girls everywhere. If one word comes to mind, it’s enthralled. When Sofia the First comes on TV, the world seems to stop and it has my kids complete attention. Adorable!


Disney Junior’s animated television movie “Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess” which was crowned the #1 preschool cable TV telecast of all time when it aired on November 18, 2012, and now it’s on DVD for the first time. Young viewers can join Sofia the First as she experiences first-hand what it really means to be part of the enchanting world of a princess.

What is this show all about?

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, Sofia quickly discovers that looking like a princess isn’t all that difficult, but possessing the inner characteristics of a true princess and overall good person. 


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.
