Exclusive First Look: Anika Noni Rose as Princess Tiana on 'Sofia the First'

In Princess Tiana's debut appearance on Disney Junior's Emmy-winning series Sofia the First (Dec. 12),  Anika Noni Rose reprises her role from the feature film The Princess and the Frog. She helps Sofia and her new friend, Winter (Alyson Hannigan), a young faun who has been cursed by an Ice Witch (Phylicia Rashad), learn that a true gift comes from the heart.
 

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] So what's troubling you, Sophia? Well, if we don't come up with a special gift to give the mountain witch, then winter will have to spend another year all alone, and clover will be stuck inside this ice. Oh, that does sound like a rough day. Tell me about it. There's not enough time to find another special gift. Are you sure, Sophia? The gift I'm giving my family this year is a special meal I'm cooking just for them [MUSIC] Made with a whole lot of love, you see, when it comes to finding the perfect gift, it doesn't matter if it's large or small, it doesn't matter what the color is at all, a gift you find inside a store high on a shelf [MUSIC]
