The series follows the adventures of Sofia, a young and kind-hearted girl who becomes a princess after her mother marries King Roland II. As a result, Sofia becomes a member of the royal family and must learn to adapt to her new life as a princess, navigating the challenges and responsibilities that come with her new title.

Throughout the show, Sofia attends the Royal Prep Academy, where she receives guidance from her wise and whimsical fairy godmother, Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather (the three fairies from “Sleeping Beauty“), and other Disney Princesses. Each episode features lessons on kindness, courage, and other moral values as Sofia learns to be a compassionate and strong leader.
