A few weeks ago, I surprised Darah with an introduction to Pricess Sofia by way of the movie Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess. I captured her reaction to seeing this new princess for the first time:
Pretty cute, right? But really, think about it. ALL of the Disney princesses that are so popular are adult, or at least teenagers. This princess is young, so she really speaks to the young crowd. I’m not alone in thinking this, though. There is proof! Sofia the First, who also has a television series on Disney Junior, is the #1 cable tv series among both boys and girls ages 2-5!
I haven’t had the pleasure of watching the television series yet, but I really enjoyed the movie. It has enough wit to hold the attention of adults without losing sight of its main viewers: young children. I also really like the qualities that are emphasized in the movie: honesty, generosity, and kindness are lauded as characteristics of a strong person.
I highly recommend this movie, and if you have Disney Junior on your television but haven’t yet seen Sofia the First, be sure to find it and watch it (or record it on your DVR). We will most definitely be watching out for more episodes that we can access, and we’ll be keeping an eye on the Disney Store, which has an entire line of Sofia the First apparel and toys available.
