For weeks now my girl has been asking me every day if today is the day when Sofia the First starts airing on Disney Junior. I kept saying “Todavía no,” but reminding her that she would get to watch the movie, Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess, in an actual theater at the Walt Disney Studios lot. I’m sure she really has no grasp at just how special and exciting that is, but she felt it once last Saturday came around and the three of us (including papá) headed out to the Disney lot in Burbank, CA to find our own spot in the Lavender Carpet and get our chance to interview celebrities as they walked by.

Of course, being it that I had the cutest 5-year-old little assistant at the premiere, we were lucky to get interviews with Sara Ramirez (voice of Queen Miranda), Lou Diamond Phillips, Darcy Rose Byrnes (voice of Princess Amber) and many more, including a very special fan-moment for my girl!

Watch our star-studded Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess movie premiere and storybook launch moments and interviews below. There are so many cute moments and we even got to talk to Sara Ramirez about the importance of being bilingual.

Be sure to check out my post on Babble Voices for a whole bunch of pictures from the event, plus what we thought about the movie (Hint: We LOVED it and want the TV show to start YA!)

Tune into the Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess movie premiere on November 18 on the Disney Channel and November 22 on Disney Junior to be enchanted!
