Preschoolers will set off on thrilling adventures in a kingdom far away where there lives a... Princess Knight! Nickelodeon's brand-new animated preschool series, Nella the Princess Knight, follows Nella, an unconventional 8-year-old who possesses the royal qualities of a princess, like compassion and grace, while also embodying the courage and determination of a brave knight. Whenever a problem arises, Nella embarks on daring quests to save her kingdom through her unique ability to transform from a princess into Nella the Princess Knight. Premiering on Nick Jr. Australia and New Zealand on Monday 1st May 2017 at 5:00pm (AU), Nella the Princess Knight (40 half-hour episodes) features a social-emotional curriculum promoting self-confidence, inclusiveness and compassion for others. Following the series premiere, Nick Jr. Australia and New Zealand will continue to air new episodes of Nella the Princess Knight weekdays at 5:00pm (AU).
Nella is a confident 8-year-old princess who likes dancing at extravagant balls just as much as she likes meeting fire-breathing dragons. She transcends traditional roles and expectations through her ability to transform into Nella the Princess Knight, protecting her kingdom with the help of her friends: Trinket, Nella’s glamorous unicorn and best friend; Sir Garrett, a loyal and adventurous knight; and Clod, Garrett’s trusty steed.
In the series premiere, "Princess Nella's Orc-hestra/The Blaine Game" (#101), a wild orc disrupts Nella's concert, then later, Blaine thinks he can do everything better than Nella and sets out to prove it by finding the famous Pink Polka Dotted Dragon Egg! Then, in "Sir Clod/Up All Knight," Clod loses his invitation to the Royal Cafe Breakfast Buffet and must find it by lunchtime or everyone misses out. Under Nella’s leadership, they brave Gotcha Falls, dodge through a field of poppleberries and traverse the bubbly Sudsycano in order to find it. Also in the episode, a luminous phoenix shines brightly across the kingdom causing Blaine and the rest of Castlehaven to lose sleep. After the phoenix is locked up in the knight brigade tower, Nella must use her knightly skills to free the bird and convince everyone to come together as a group to solve their problem.
