SOFIA THE FIRST has been a staple here at Rock Father HQ since it started airing on Disney Junior earlier this year. That said, my girls will be pretty excited to learn that the adventure is going beyond Enchanica, and onto the seas when SOFIA THE FIRST: THE FLOATING PALACE arrives next month. Premiering SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT) on the Disney Channel and THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 28 (7:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Junior, Sofia's first primetime special features an appearance from a true Disney legend - Princess Ariel, THE LITTLE MERMAID herself. Check out a preview below...
SOFIA THE FIRST: The Floating Palace
"Sofia the First: The Floating Palace" takes Sofia and her family on an extraordinary journey to Merriway Cove, where Sofia meets a young mermaid named Oona. After helping Oona untangle her fin from a net, Sofia's magical amulet transforms her into a mermaid too, allowing her to explore the underwater world with her new friend. During their adventure, Sofia learns that mermaids mistrust humans and are angry that her family's floating palace is in their cove. When Oona is captured by a horrible sea monster, Sofia – with a little help from Princess Ariel – must find a way to save her and create harmony between their two worlds.
Created for kids age 2-7 and their parents/caregivers, and starring the voices of Ariel Winter (ABC's "Modern Family"), Sara Ramirez (ABC's "Grey's Anatomy"), Wayne Brady ("Let’s Make a Deal"), and Tim Gunn ("Project Runway"), "Sofia the First" follows the adventures of Princess Sofia, a young girl who is learning how to adjust to royal life after her mom marries the king. Along the way, she discovers that the inner character of kindness, generosity, loyalty, honesty and grace is what makes a real princess.
