Disney Junior's latest project is going to make a lot of kids very happy! The beloved Fancy Nancy children's book series, which has inspired over 60 installments, is set to hit the screen as a new TV show for kids age 2 through 7. Focused on a precocious little girl with a penchant for all things "fancy," Fancy Nancy encourages kids to express themselves in ways that make them happy and inspired — which is exactly why the series creators found Disney Junior such a perfect fit for adapting their books.
"We knew instantly that Disney Junior was the plus-perfect home for Fancy Nancy," author Jane O'Connor said of the project, which illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser also described as "a dream I never would have dared to dream."
So if your kids love all things fancy, prepare for them to adore this new show! Set to premiere in 2017, Nancy might just become one of your favorites, too.
