Nella the Princess Knight Special Issue

The animated preschool series focusses on problem-solving and heroism and this messaging will be carried through the exclusive issue of Showcase’s latest magazine.

The issue will introduce readers to Nella’s kingdom through stories, snap cards, princess-themed puzzles and colouring. The magazine will also be accompanied by more than 30 stickers and a free play-set, featuring a figurine of Nella’s unicorn sidekick, Trinket.

Kiran Vara, publisher at Egmont, said, “We’re so excited to be partnering with Nickelodeon in bringing Nella and her friends to print and we’re sure that our readers will love learning more about their favourite Princess Knight through the magazine’s engaging activities. We think that the magazines market is ready for a girl just like Nella, who will empower our young audience to be their own hero.”

Marianne James, Vice President for Consumer Products at Viacom Nickelodeon Consumer Products (VNCP) for the UK & Ireland, Nordics, Central and Eastern Europe and Russia (UKNEE) cluster, added: “We’re looking forward to expanding our longstanding partnership with Egmont to introduce our favourite Princess Knight to the magazine market. Nella is a uniquely heroic character in the pre-school space and we can’t wait for readers enjoy the engaging new content and own their very own sidekick in Trinket.”

The special edition Nella the Princess Knight Showcase magazine goes on sale on Wednesday 29th May 2019, with an rrp of £3.99.

Nella the Princess Knight made its debut on Nick Jr. UK & Ireland on Monday 15th May 2017, and 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).

The Nella issue of Showcase follows the success of Egmont's Top Wing issue of the popular preschool magazine in April 2019.
