Sofia the FirstThis is a sponsored post from Disney.

Just when you think you know everything about princesses, enter Sofia the First ... a first in shaping a new role model of princesses for our little girls. If you saw her movie premiere in November, you learned she's a little girl that stumbles into royalty when her life takes a royal turn after her mom marries the king. 

In her new series debut next Friday on Disney Junior, little girls will continue to find this new role model of royalty a treat for the whole family. She surprises the whole court as the new girl in crown -- first girl to try out for the derby team, check! Hosting a royal sleepover with your friends from the village -- no brainer! And loving your step-brother and step-sister like they're your own -- a win for the whole family!


Disney Junior presents an all new series Sofia the First on Friday morning January 11 at 9:30 a.m./8:30c! Tune in to watch the new girl in crown as she continues her transformation from average girl to royal princess in the series premiere.

To get your little one warmed up for the enchanting debut, join Sofia's world online to start the fun! From a "Series Premiere Party Kit" to being awarded a Royal Prep Certificate, the virtual experiences are endless. 

In the royal games, your prince or princess can earn gems by helping Sofia throw a royal tea party, practice steps for her Debut Ball, and more! Gems can be used to buy new items for your child's avatar from Sofia's world, designed to fit your little prince/princess. Each game played is a lesson learned, which is awarded by a Royal Prep Certificate. Psssst! We won't tell if you want to get in on the fun and reconnect with your own inner princess, too!

And of course, who doesn't like to show off your little royal one in style? On the Sofia The First Facebook page, the Disney Junior Design Studio allows you to upload photos and add magical touches from Sofia's world to create your own one-of-a-kind design! Share with your friends and even add them to your "royal court" for everyone to join the royal debut together! 

So meet the new girl in crown in the All New Series, Sofia the First, Friday morning January 11 at 9:30 a.m./8:30c on Disney Junior on Disney Channel.
