BREAKING NEWS!!!!! This one is for all my little Disney bébés out there (That’s a fancy word for babies!).
Harper Collins plucky little, curly haired girl, Fancy Nancy is being ever so fancy! Being in books is no longer enough for our little Nancy. She now needs to move to a bigger stage and reach out to more children. She will soon be brought to life by our very own Disney Junior.
The series, set to screen sometime in 2017, is aimed primarily at children ages 2 to 7 years. The popular children’s book has inspired over 60 different stories showing Fancy Nancy being fancy in every aspect of her life. After all she is magnifique (that is a fancy word for ‘magnificent’).
Author, Jane O’Connor, and Illustrator, Robin Preiss Glasser, believe Disney Junior is the perfect home for Fancy Nancy. Glasser says “After the thrill of seeing my two dimensional drawings of Nancy and her world come alive in spinoff musicals and ballet, the opportunity to see her animated by Disney is a dream I never would have dared to dream.” O’Connor states “This is definitely one of those ‘pinch me’ moments!”
Children love to do things that inspire them and express themselves in different ways. Disney Junior is here to encourage that behavior by bringing Fancy Nancy into our homes.
A movie and a series are currently in the works (exact dates unknown.) Stay tuned to Magical DIStractions as we will bring you all details on Fancy Nancy as they are released. I think Nancy would say that this is fantastique (That’s a fancy word for ‘fantastic’).
