Disney is kickin’ off a HUGE celebration — and it’s all about princesses!
It seems like there’s always a party going on at Disney, from Celebrate HER Story for Women’s History Month to Disneyland Paris’ big virtual celebration. And now, there’s something new: a year-long tribute to all of our favorite Disney princesses.
Today, Disney announced the Ultimate Princess Celebration, which spotlights the “courage and kindness these Disney heroines inspire in fans all around the world.” And there are TONS of parts to this event!
First of all, we’re getting a brand-new song — and the celebration’s “anthem” — called “Starting Now.” It’ll be sung by Brandy, who played Cinderella in The Wonderful World of Disney, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, and it debuts on May 21st! There will also be a music video, which Brandy will reveal in Disney Princess Remixed — An Ultimate Princess Celebration. That show will be on Disney Channel this August and on Disney+ after!
Disney has also released Tales of Courage and Kindness for free download through the end of August. The book features 14 original stories to celebrate princesses’ kindness and courage! You can also purchase 5 Minute Princess Stories, which makes the perfect bedtime tale!
Beginning November 1st, 2021, you’ll be able to catch Disney Princess — The Concert. It’s a nationwide tour with an “all-star quartet of Broadway” — and you can expect lots of amazing music! Tony nominee Susan Egan, two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes, Grammy nominee Courtney Reed, and rising star Aisha Jackson are all starring in the show.
Disney is also giving back! The company has a historic partnership with children’s hospitals, and for this celebration, it’s teaming up with Starlight Children’s Foundation to donate princess-themed hospital gowns. These donations, in addition to toys, books, and games, provide comfort and normalcy to children.
Lastly, we’re getting PLENTY of new princess products! That includes toys, accessories, home decor, books, and more — including new princess Lokai bracelets that are debuting tomorrow. We’re constantly keeping you in the loop with new Disney finds, so we’ll be sure to keep you posted with all the new merch!
Lastly, World Princess Week will kick off on August 23rd — and there will be even MORE festivities! We’ll also keep an eye on things as this celebration continues and let you know ALL the details. Stay tuned to DFB!
