Kiran Vara: “We think that the magazines market is ready for a girl just like Nella.”

According to Egmont, Nella is an eight-year old picture-perfect princess, but that’s only part of her story. She's more than a princess, and more than a knight. She’s a princess knight! With the help of her friends, Sir Garrett, Trinket, and Clod, Nella breaks barriers, challenges expectations, and fights for justice during every adventure. A hero unlike any other, Nella always stays true to herself through determination and courage. The television show focusses on problem-solving and heroism with heart. Its messaging empowers children to be more like Nella, a self-confident girl who defends her kingdom with kindness.

As well as having proven very popular on TV, the pre-school property has also amassed over 2.5 million installs of the app, Nella the Princess Knight: Kingdom Adventures. The positive portrayal of a strong heroine who breaks the fairy tale norm has also been praised, say the publishers, for its refreshing spin on traditional gender roles.

This exclusive issue of Showcase magazine will introduce readers to Nella’s kingdom through stories, snap cards, Princess-themed puzzles, colouring and more to make, do and read. The issue is also accompanied by over 30 stickers and a free playset, featuring a figurine of Nella’s trusty 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, VP Consumer products UK and Northern and Eastern Europe says, “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!”

Showcase: Nella the Princess Knight goes on sale on 29th May, priced at £3.99.
