Nickelodeon UK To Premiere "Regal Academy" On Saturday 7th January 2017

Digiguide is reporting the exciting news that Nickelodeon UK and Ireland/HD, the number one commercial kids TV network in the UK, will start to premiere and show Regal Academy every Saturday and Sunday at 8:00am from Saturday 7th January 2017!

Regal Academy is a brand-new funny and exciting animated series (26 episodes X 26') from Winx Club creator Rainbow that brings classic fairy tale characters into the modern world. Using a a mixture of comedy, music and innovative animation techniques, the new show takes the familiar world of fairy tales and turns it upside down by adding a delicious and charming twist.

The action takes place through the eyes of Rose Cinderella, a average teenage girl who's as obsessed with shoes as she is fairy tales. But when she finds a key that unlocks a magical new world, she learns that fairy tales are not just in storybooks!

When Rose tumbles into Fairy Tale Land, she discovers something even greater--her own magical family legacy! Her grandmother Cinderella is headmistress of Regal Academy, where five famous fairy tale families come together to teach the next generation of princes and princesses how to become heroes... with a lot of help from their legendary grandparents.

Now Rose and her new best friends – Astoria Rapunzel, Joy Le Frog, Travis Beast, LingLing Iron Fan and Hawk Snowwhite, all of whom belong to the school's founding families – figure out how to fly dragons and outsmart witches, all while learning to use their magic and live up to their famous family names. Can they make the grade?

In the series premiere of Regal Academy, "A School for Fairy Tales" (#101), when Rose falls into Fairy Tale Land, she begins her new adventure at her new school, Regal Academy, with classmates who are all grandchildren of fairy tales!
