Sofia the First is a 3D computer-animated television series featuring the Disney Princesses that officially premiered with its first half-hour episode on January 11, 2013. The series pilot made its debut on the Disney Channel on November 18, 2012 with a one-hour special. The series stars Ariel Winter (Modern Family, Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Phineas and Ferb) as the titular character who is a young girl on the verge of becoming a proper, royal princess.

It introduces Sofia, a little girl with a commoner’s background until her mother (played by Sara Ramirez from Grey's Anatomy) marries King Roland II and suddenly she becomes royalty.

Premise

Main article: Sofia the First episode list

The series follows the adventures of a young girl named Sofia who becomes a princess overnight after her mother marries the king. Sofia tries her best to adapt to her new life being a princess and has her step brother and sister James and Amber to help her along with the headmistresses of the Royal Preparitory Academy Flora, Fauna and Merryweather, the Three Good Fairies from Disney’s classic Sleeping Beauty and, when Sofia is at her darkest hours, classic Disney Princess Cinderella, Jasmine, Belle, Ariel, Aurora, Snow White, Mulan, Tiana and Rapunzel are there for her.

Sofia learns that looking like a princess isn't all that hard, but behaving like one must come from the heart. The stories focus on the idea that what makes a real princess is what's on the inside. The show highlights character qualities such as kindness, courage, generosity, loyalty, honesty and grace. Subjects such as sincerity and forgiveness are heavily focused on. She has the magical and incredibly powerful Amulet of Avalor that allows her to talk with animals. However her amulet is coveted by the sorcerer Cedric, who desires its tremendous magical power to take over the kingdom of Enchancia.

Main Characters

  • Princess Sofia (Ariel Winter) - A little girl who once lived in the village until her mother married the King and suddenly became royalty. She learns that looking like a princess isn't all that hard, but behaving like one must come from the heart.
  • Princess Amber (Darcy Rose Byrnes) - Sofia's stepsister and the twin sister of Prince James. Although she cares for family and friends, she can be a little vain and prissy in certain regards to what she thinks being a princess is all about.
  • Prince James (Zach Callison) - The twin brother of Princess Amber and Sofia's stepbrother. Unlike his sister, James is not at all vain and is very helpful towards Sofia. He is rather easygoing for a prince, sometimes displaying behavior not normally seen in royalty.
  • Queen Miranda (Sara Ramirez) - Sofia's mother who was once a shoemaker until she married the king and became the queen of Enchancia. Unlike the wicked type stepmothers, Miranda is kind and loving to both her daughter and stepchildren.
  • King Roland II (Travis Willingham) - The King of Enchancia who fell in love and married Miranda, becoming Sofia's stepfather.
  • Clover (Wayne Brady) - Sofia's pet rabbit and best animal friend who enjoys snacks but not cuddles.
  • Cedric the Sorcerer (Jess Harnell) - The bumbling Royal Sorcerer of Enchancia who desires to steal Sofia's magic amulet and take over the kingdom.

Reception

In October 2012, Disney confirmed that Sofia is their first Latina princess. According to a Disney spokeswoman, "...Sofia's mother, Queen Miranda, was born in a fictitious land, Galdiz, a place with Latin influences. Miranda met Sofia's father, Birk Balthazar, who hailed from the kingdom of Friezenberg, and together they moved to Enchancia where Sofia was born." As a result, some people have criticized a lack of cultural signifiers or ethnic identity in Sofia's character.

Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess premiered on Disney Channel on November 18, 2012, and had 5.2 million viewers.

Merchandise

A range of Sofia the First merchandise has been launched by the Disney Store in the US, including costumes, books, toy figures, and homeware. Products have also been launched in the UK and France.
