Sofia is a young girl who becomes a princess when her mother marries the king of Enchancia. With the help of the three fairies in charge of the Royal Training Academy Sofia learns that looking like a princess is not all that hard, but behaving like one must come from the heart. Sofia will wear plenty of pretty sparkly and colourful gowns and shoes, but the stories will focus on the idea that what makes a real princess is what's on the inside. Sofia learns about character qualities such as kindness, generosity, loyalty, honesty, and grace. She has the incredibly powerful magical Amulet of Avalor that grants her the ability to talk to and understand animals, but is coveted by the evil sorcerer Cedric who wants to steal its great magical power so he can use it to take over the kingdom.
