Disney Princess Sofia

Whether it’s Snow White, Belle or Cinderella, Disney’s princesses have always looked to be about 15-years-old. But a new princess has joined the fairy tale crew and she’s aimed at kids 2 to 7!

It’s about time! The New York Times is reporting that Walt Disney Co. is adding a new beautifully jeweled princess to their lineup and her name is Sofia! The adorable princess will make her debut in a TV movie and series called Sofia the First.

So who will voice this coveted role? Just Jared Jr., is reporting that Modern Family‘s Ariel Winter will play the role of the animated princess. Sofia will have a storyline similar to one we’ve heard before, her mom will marry a king and she’ll have step-siblings — uh oh!

Instead of the show and movie being all about finding your prince, Disney is opting to try something different and focus on kindess, sibling rivalry and generosity. But don’t worry, Disney’s general manager says she’ll still be a total princess and have “plenty of dresses and sparkly shoes.”
