Nickelodeon has lined up the all-new animated preschool series Nella the Princess Knight, about an unconventional royal.

Nella

Nella the Princess Knight will premiere on Monday, February 6, at 10 a.m. Following its U.S. launch, Nella the Princess Knight will debut internationally in spring 2017. The show tells the story of 8-year-old Nella, who is compassionate and graceful like a princess, and courageous and determined like a knight. Whenever a problem arises, she sets out on daring quests to save her kingdom, transforming into Nella the Princess Knight. The 40×30-minute series aims to teach preschoolers self-confidence, inclusiveness and compassion for others.

Leading up to the premiere of Nella the Princess Knight, exclusive content will be featured on the Nick Jr. website and app. The exclusive materials include a full-length episode, as well as original short-form content. The Nick Jr. app and website will also launch a brand-new game inspired by the show, in which players ride through the kingdom with Nella and help return sleeping dragons to their homes.

Robert Vargas (Zack and Quack) serves as an executive producer on Nella the Princess Knight. The series was created by Christine Ricci (Blaze and the Monster Machines, Dora the Explorer). It is the newest show to join Nick’s preschool roster, airing alongside hit series like PAW Patrol, Blaze and the Monster Machines and Shimmer and Shine.
