Sofia The First

Any info on this character and if it's actually going to become a show? If so, does anyone know when?

I wasn't even sure who she was. But the show doesn't go on the air for over a year.

I think you will have wait until then.

We recently saw the preview for this upcoming Disney Junior show on TV. My DD is super excited about this newest princess! I am curious if anyone has heard rumors of possible meet and greets at WDW with Sofia. Also any rumors on if Disney will be putting out merchandise of Sofia? Thanks for everyone's info and expertise on this subject!!!

My DD is also excited about her. I think that meet and greets would be problematic. All the princesses are face characters, and Sofia is a child, so I'm not sure how they would work that out.

If Sofia has M&Gs before Doc McStuffins I will not be a happy camper!

I was just going to say that Doc doesn't even have a M&G yet so I hope she has one before Sofia. But we are excited to see the new Sofia movie on Disney Jr!

I can't see how they would do a M&G with Sofia. She looks like she's about 8 years old and I can't see them trying to use a child or adult to fill the part.

I have feeling if they would, since she's from Disney Junior, maybe have her like they have Jake and the Little Einsteins. (which my DD never questioned about Jake - only mentioned that he's alot taller than she imagined! - she's 4)

In terms of logistics of the M&G--Jake and the Little Einsteins are all children and they are used in M&Gs so they could definitely do Sofia and Doc in the M&G format just like they do Handy Manny and Jake.

My guess would be the addition of Sophia the First and / or Doc McStuffins into the Disney Jr Live on Stage show like they did with Jake. Not sure that M&Gs would work well for either of them, but I could see Disney putting them into the stage show as puppet versions of themselves.
