Royal Sing-Along

Editorial Reviews

Set in the storybook world of Enchancia, 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. Sofia must learn to navigate the extraordinary life of royalty while holding onto her own hopes and dreams. Her journey to be the best she can be also paves the way for those around her to realize how special they each are. Cinderella makes an appearance in the movie to offer Sofia some words of wisdom, princess to princess. Sofia's royal adventure begins as she prepares to move into the castle with her mom, starting a new family with her step-father, King Roland II, and step-siblings, Amber and James. Helping Sofia in her journey are the three headmistresses of Royal Prep Academy - Fauna, Flora, and Merryweather (the beloved fairies seen in Disney's classic Sleeping Beauty), and royal steward, Baileywick, as well as a group of cute woodland creatures led by a wise-talking rabbit, Clover. Sofia soon discovers that looking like a princess isn't all that difficult, but displaying honesty, loyalty, courage, independence, compassion, and grace is what makes one truly royal.

My two daughters (ages 3 and 5) really love the new Sofia The First: Once Upon a Princess TV Movie that came out on Disney Channel at the end of 2012. It is a cute story with cute characters. I would say it is geared towards younger, Disney Junior age kids due to the simple story and ages of the main characters. The story introduces the King and new Queen (Sofia's mother), Sofia and her new Stepbrother and Stepsister, the Fairies who teach at Royal Prep Academy (Sofia's new school), the Castle Sorcerer (the bumbling bad guy), and several other characters. There is minor, Disney style conflict with the new stepsister and the castle sorcerer which gives the story a great plot. Cinderella even makes an appearance to help the newest Disney Princess.

My girls have watched this movie over and over since it came out and quickly memorized all the songs. They would sing along with the TV Movie and would wander around the house singing the songs all the time. We have already bought the MP3 Music Soundtrack (Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess) and the Hardcover Storybook (Sofia the First) already available on Amazon, which I also highly recommend.

The regular TV Series premiers on the Disney Channel on January 11, 2013 and this is a must have introduction to the Sofia characters and universe. I know my girls are really looking forward to the show. Don't miss it.


QUICK UPDATE (01/21/2013):
Well the TV Series came out a couple of weeks ago and two episodes in, it is a huge hit in our house. My girls look forward to a new episode every Friday.

5.0 out of 5 stars Granddaughter's Favorite Princess of All January 20, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Granddaughter really took to Princess Sofia better than all Princesses before Her. We have watched the movie over, over and over again, glad DVDs were invented, VHS never would have lasted. Hope Princess Sofia stays around for years to come.

4.0 out of 5 stars fast service November 1, 2013
By XTV310
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The product came on time. I'm a prime member so i received it in the 2 days specified. No delays at all. nicely packaged. No damages what so ever. The only reason i did not give this a 5 star is that there is a sticker on the DVD that states "Includes FREE princess in Training Activity Kit with Stickers & Tiaras". Now when i ordered the product, the description was for a DVD only. But if you are going to describe it as such, then the sticker should have been removed prior to deliver or i am going to think that something is not amiss. It does not matter to me that the seller is perhaps selling the activity kit separately, but now that i know it should have came with the DVD it annoys me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Sophia October 7, 2013
My granddaughter is four and loves all things having to do with a Princess. She has been to DisneyWorld and has met Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty. She sometimes is bothered by 'mean characters', but she understands what is reality.

In 'Sofia The Princess' Sofia has the voice of Ariel Winter. She is a commoner, living in the Village with her mother. Her mother is beautiful and makes boots. Sofia's mother, Miranda, whose voice is Sara Raminez, marries King Roland II, whose voice is Travis Willingham. Sofia and her mother leave their small Village and move to the Royal Castle where Roland and his children, James, whose voice is Zach Callison and Amber whose voice is Darcy Rose Byrnes. Sofia becomes immersed in the royal life, the Princess lessons, curtsey lessons and all the table lessons at Royal Prep Academy under the guidance of the Three Fairies. These three fairies have shown up in other Disney films and my granddaughter recognized them. Amber, the new stepsister is jealous that everyone who meets Sofia loves her.

When Roland announces that he's hosting a dance in Sofia's honor, Sofia worries that she can't dance. Tricks are played upon her, and her feelings are hurt. The magic sorcerer is indeed a meanie and we worry for Sofia. This film offers a lot of action and fun, but also many lessons are learned. For young children this is a wonderful way for them to learn.

The colors are vibrant, the songs are rich and delightful, the characters are full and believable. The storyline is perfect for children from 3-90. I enjoyed this film as much as my granddaughter.

Highly Recommended. prisrob 10-07-13
