C’est magnifique! Fancy Nancy on Disney Junior! Are you ready to get worldly with Fancy Nancy?! Mai Oui! Yes! I am! We had the opportunity to speak to Producer/Director Jamie Mitchell and Story Editor Krista Tucker. Thanks to Disney and Marvel for inviting me for this #DisneyFancyNancy press event, all opinions are my own. I can’t wait for all of you to enjoy it when Fancy Nancy premieres tomorrow, July 13 at 11 am ET on Disney Junior and the DisneyNOW app.
From the Pages to the Screen
Every story in the show is original. While Disney now owns the rights to the Fancy Nancy franchise, Tucker and Mitchell stressed the importantce of keeping the origins of the books true. “One of the great things about Nancy is that she’s flawed,” says Tucker. Her flaws lend themselves to comedy and conflict. The themes the show covers are Nancy’s creativity and her want of changing the world into what she wants it be. As a situational comedy, the show puts Nancy and her friends into different scenarios in order to provide humor and teach lessons to children ages 2-7.
She’s so Fancy
Yes! Nancy is totally fancy. Your kids will learn a little bit of French watching the series, so pull out the text books from high school! I absolutely love looking at the vibrant stills, don’t agree? Here’s a cool bit of info on her hair: Fancy Nancy’s hair is made out of 236 pieces and you can appreciate strands of hair on her head. The way it moves reminded me of Moana.
We screened the first episode and it was so cute! With each episode the characters will develop more and you’re going to love the girls and the boys! Yes, it’s a show that also includes boys. Everything takes place in the cul de sac forthe kids to have a safe environment. Nancy has a baby brother that you are going to just love.
Check out the beautiful merchandise coming to a retailer near you! I hope to be receiving some merch for a giveaway too! So come back and leave a comment if you loved the show.
