I am SO excited to announce to you all that Sofia the First is making an appearance in the iTunes store…and I get to share it with all of you! Every little princess seems to be enjoying Sofia and her debut on Disney Jr. has almost turned into a phenomenon!
Partnering with the season premiere of the all new Disney Junior animated series “Sofia the First” on January 11th, Disney Publishing has released the first “Sofia the First” storybook app for iOS devices: Sofia the First: Story Theater. The app follows the show’s opening storyline and your little princess will recognize the original voice of Sofia, narrated by ABC’s Modern Family star Ariel Winter, and the other characters of the TV show, including Sara Ramirez from Grey’s Anatomy as Sofia’s mother.
The new storybook app is perfect for beginning readers, because it features beautiful illustrations along with classic, elegant Disney animation to tell an interactive story that is tailored to the iPad and iPhone experience with tappable elements on each story page. Children can even create and record personal stories as part of a digital story theater, providing them an opportunity to use their imagination and creativity to hand-select characters, backdrops, props and music to enrich their own story creation.
In the app storyline, Sofia learns an important lesson: that looking like a princess isn’t all that hard but behaving like one must come from the heart. As a new resident of the castle with her mother’s recent marriage to the King, Sofia must learn how to behave like a Princess while also dealing with her stepbrother and stepsister, who aren’t entirely happy about her arrival. With the help of a magical amulet, which allows her to talk with new animal friends, and three familiar fairies in charge of the Royal Training Academy — Flora, Fauna and Merryweather of Disney’s classic “Sleeping Beauty” – Sofia learns how to fit into her new role, enjoy her new life and learn how family, friends and special relationships are important. Classic Disney princesses Ariel, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle and Jasmine even make special appearances in the app!
Sofia the First: Story Theater is available now $3.99 on the iTunes store by clicking HERE.
Don’t miss out on the other ways to bring Sofia the First into your home. There is a storybook, Sofia the First written by Cathy Hapta and illustrated by Grace Lee. It retails for $15.99, wherever books are sold. And, get your tvs ready for Sofia to make her way onto Disney, Jr. with her own show starting January 11, 2013.
I’ll be back with a review of this app to share with all of you!
