“Sofia The First: Once Upon a Princess” Disney Channel Movie Premiere and Storybook Launch at Walt Disney Studios
On November 10, 2012, Disney Channel presents the Movie Premiere and Storybook Launch for “Sofia The First: Once Upon a Princess” at the Walt Disney Studio Main Theatre located at 500 S. Buena Vista Street, in Burbank, California. The animated Disney television movie will air November 18, 2012 on Disney Channel and November 22, 2012 on Disney Junior.
Walt Disney introduces a little princess. Sofia is an average girl whose life suddenly changes when her mother marries the king and she becomes princess. Sofia discovers looking like a princess isn’t all difficult. She displays honesty, courage, independence, compassion and grace. Helping her on her journey were the three headmistresses of Royal Prep Academy- Fauna, Flora, and Merryweather.
At 10:00 a.m., excitement filled the air, when the actors and actresses walked the red carpet with their family. Some of the children seemed shy at first, but then later felt more comfortable. They seem to be enjoying themselves. The three headmistresses escorted some of the actors and actresses, down the carpet for photographers to get a group picture. They were very delighted and happy.
