About Sofia The First
Sofia the First is a computer-animated Disney Television series. The first episode aired on November 18, 2012 in the US and was shown on the Disney Channel in the Disney Junior time-slot. It has received consistently high viewer ratings and has even set records for the amount of children viewing a cable television programme at one time. This popularity has led to a number of Sofia-based merchandise lines, including the traditional Disney Princess dress, shoes and stationery. These have become exceedingly sought after, further demonstrating the appeal of the show.
Sofia the First is the most recent addition to the Disney Princess line-up. She is a cute little girl in a lilac dress and a tiara. This newly made princess struggles with the reality of becoming royalty and growing up in a new kingdom. She attends the Royal Preparatory Academy where young princes and princesses learn how to act properly and draws on the expertise of other Disney greats to help her stay true to herself along the way.
Sofia the First incorporates many of the other popular Disney characters into the story line. Some characters, such as Flora, Fauna and Merryweather from ?Sleeping Beauty?, appear regularly, whereas others are featured for part of an episode to help Sofia with a specific problem. There is a good vs. evil aspect to the series, as there often is within Disney films, with Sofia triumphing over negative thoughts or people that want to do bad deeds. Moral lessons are also taught by examining the way in which Sofia overcomes difficult emotions such as fear or jealousy.
