is an animated special that premiered on November 18, 2012 on Disney Junior. It is set to act as the pilot for the upcoming animated series to premiere early 2013 starring the titular protagonist Sofia , and Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather  from Disney's Sleeping Beauty.


Set in the storybook world of Enchancia, the music-filled movie follows Sofia, an average girl whose life suddenly changes when her mother marries the king and she is whisked off to live in a castle with her mom, new step-father, King Roland II , and step-siblings, Amber and James . Along the way this ordinary girl learns to navigate the extraordinary life of royalty, and in the process makes everyone around her feel special.

Helping Sofia along the way are the three headmistresses of Royal Prep Academy  - Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather (the beloved fairies seen in Disney's classic "Sleeping Beauty"); the royal steward, Baileywick ; and a group of cute woodland creatures led by the wise-talking rabbit Clover ; as well as Cinderella, a classic Disney Princess, who makes a special visit to offer Sofia words of wisdom. However, not everyone is looking out for Sofia's best interests, including the bumbling royal sorcerer, Cedric , who takes an interest in Sofia only when he recognizes that her welcome gift from the King is the magical Amulet of Avalor . To no avail, Cedric is always looking for ways to trick Sofia into handing the special amulet over to him so that he can utilize the powers locked inside it to achieve his lifelong dream of taking over the kingdom of Enchancia.

MusicEdit

As with many of the classic Disney movies, music plays an important role in "Sofia the First: Once Upon A Princess" and the "Sofia the First" series. The movie features five original songs ranging in musical styles from contemporary pop in songs like "Rise and Shine" and ballads like "Not Ready To Be A Princess" to those with more of a traditional classic Disney feature film style like "Royal Prep" performed by Fauna, Flora and Merryweather; "True Sisters" performed by Sofia and Cinderella; and "A Little Bit of Food," a fun, upbeat song performed by Clover that uncovers the mystery of why woodland creatures have been hanging around princesses for years.
