Join Nella’s quest to save her Kingdom when Nick Jr. welcomes the unconventional Princess on Monday 15th May at 5:30pm

London, 24th April 2017 - Brand new pre-school show Nella the Princess Knight is set to premiere on Monday 15th May at 5:30pm on Nick Jr. The animation follows the adventures of an 8 year old heroine Nella, who is far from your average Princess… she can also transform into a Princess Knight to save her kingdom. With the compassion and grace required of a royal mixed with the courage and determination that comes with Knighthood, Nella embodies the perfect Princess Knight.

She enjoys dancing at extravagant balls just as much as meeting fire-breathing dragons and her ability to transform into a Princess Knight transcends the traditional roles and expectations of a Princess. Alongside her friends: Trinket, Nella’s glamorous unicorn and best friend; Sir Garrett, a loyal and adventurous knight; and Clod, Garrett’s trusty steed, Nella embarks on heroic quests to protect the kingdom and help her friends.

Robert Vargas (Zack and Quack) serves as an executive producer on Nella the Princess Knight and the series is created by Christine Ricci (Blaze and the Monster Machines, Dora the Explorer). It is the newest show to join Nick Jr’s top-ranked pre-school properties, airing alongside PAW Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines and Shimmer and Shine.

Online at, parents and children can meet the characters, discover activities, watch clips and sing along to the theme tune. For any fans that can’t wait until 15th May, a sneak peek of the first episode will be available to watch exclusively online a week before the Nick Jr. premiere.
