There’s a lot of channels showing kids show now so you expect a little bit of diversity with the characters. We live in a time when you can expect to not only identify, but be inspired by the characters on your TV screen. For the last few years Nick Jr. has aired Mike the Knight about a prince who goes off and does knightly duties. But what if you’re a girl and want a little inspiration? Well luckily there’s no Nella the Princess Knight. She’s a princess who also wants to do more than be a royal figure. Nella wants to slap on the armor and get mixed up in adventures. Like Mike, she doesn’t completely do it along. She rides on her faithful unicorn Trinket (Samantha Hahn). She’s the one she truly confides in. Along for the fun is her pal Sir Garrett (Micah Gursoy) and his horse Clod (voiced by Matthew Gumley) who for some reason has two horns like a goat. The group do their best to help those in distress around the kingdom. Nella the Princess Knight contains the first 8 episodes of the first season.
Here’s Josie’s Review of the dvd:
The video is 1.78:1 anamorphic. The transfer brings out the racial diversity in Nella’s kingdom. There is a series for people who want their royals less pasty than Prince Harry. The audio is Dolby Digital 2.0. Things sound fine as adventure heightens. The episodes are Closed Captioned.
No bonus features.
Nickelodeon DVD present Nella the Princess Knight. Created by: Christine Ricci. Starring: Akira Golz, Samantha Hahn, Micah Gursoy & Matthew Gumley. Boxset Contents: 8 episodes on 1 DVD. Released: January 30, 2018.
