A spell is cast over Disney Junior this November with the premiere of the one-hour animated special Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Ivy. Debuting Saturday, November 29 at 6 p.m. ET the star-studded family event features the voice of film, television and Broadway actress Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) as the wicked Princess Ivy, who is set out to rule Enchancia, as well as Mandy Moore, who reprises her role as Rapunzel from Disney’s Tangled. In anticipation of the exciting adventure, Disney Junior will be playing Classic Disney Princess-themed episodes of Sofia the First from November 24 – November 28 at 6 p.m. ET daily.
Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Ivy follows sisters, Sofia and Amber, as they embark on an incredible journey to save their kingdom after Amber accidentally unlocks a curse that summons an evil princess. With a little help from their friend Rapunzel, the sisters must work together to stop Princess Ivy who threatens to destroy Sofia’s amulet and take over Enchancia, removing all the colour from the kingdom. In addition to Camp
and Moore, special guest stars include John Michael Higgins (Pitch Perfect) as Flambeau, the self-appointed leader of an all-dragon A capella group, and Oliver Platt (The West Wing) as Enchancia’s oldest-living dragon, Everburn.
