Sofia The First: Once Upon a Princess

Us and my princesses got the very first e-invite to the screening of Disney Junior's latest television movie SOFIA the First: ONCE UPON A PRINCESS. Date, time and venue were all stated as the below picture. We were overjoyed, but when I knew my princesses had to sit for their mid-term exam on 14 May, we were hesitated whether we should accept the invitation. After discussing in more details at the family meeting, we decided to go to KL and my princesses promised to bring along their books to study at the hotel.

Unfortunately the RSVP's seats were filled up extremely quickly in the two days of our dilemma. My princesses were extremely disappointed.

Since we missed the special screening of Disney Junior's latest television movie SOFIA the First: ONCE UPON A PRINCESS on May 11 2013, 1030AM at GSC, The Gardens, Mid Valley City, the organiser sent me another e-invite on movie review contest.

I quickly informed my princesses on the details of the premier screening, they too wrote down the date and time on their whiteboard "SUNDAY, MAY 19 at 11am on Disney Channel(ASTRO Channel 615) and MONDAY, MAY 27 at 1pm on Disney Junior(ASTRO Channel 613)".

They have finally watched it yesterday. They enjoy the movie to the bits. They don't mind to watch this movie special premiering again and again on the TV. They have bugged me to go to the ASTRO TV Guide and check at all this special screening date and time in this month.

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. The movie is very interesting when Disney's Cinderella makes special appearance to offer Sofia some words of wisdom - princess to princess.

Sofia's royal adventure begins as she prepares to move into the palace with her mom, starting a new family wit her step-father, King Rolland II, and step-siblings, Amber and James. Helping Sofia in her journey are the three headmistresses of Royal Prep Academy - Fauna, Flora and Merryweather. If you are following all the Disney's Princesses stories, you will find these names familiar. These three are Sleeping Beauty, Aurora's Fairy God Mothers.

I personally find Sofia is as kind hearted as Snow White, as she makes friends with woodland creatures, like birds and rabbits. She too, helped by royal steward, Baileywick. 

The stories of  "Sofia the First" communicate positive messages and life lessons that are applicable  to young children.  Sofia displays honestly, loyalty, courage, independence, compassion and grace. Sofia remains a relatable peer-to-peer princess who is experiencing many of the same social situations as young viewers at home including learning how to fit in, making new friends and mastering new skills.

Those who have watched this movie screening yesterday, I am sure you are interested to know when  "Sofia the First" TV series will premier. It is in July 2013. Please stay tuned.

Disney Channel and Disney Junior will launch the DisneyJunior-Asia.com/Sofia website featuring a fully immersive royal experience. Kids can get creative, creating and personalizing their own prince or princess avatars with the Royal Me game, dressing up Sofia's room or just having fun with the many activity pages and videos available on the site.
