It's really ridiculous to not include Pocahontas and come up with those skimpy excuses. Why not coming clean and admitting that she's not popular enough?

Remarkable that Olaf is appearing instead of the sisters. Could it be due to them actually not being on the lineup?

Seems like excuses because they know Pocahontas is the least popular princess. Or maybe they're worried about some sort of historical backlash although the boat has sailed on that.

I think it's a little bit of both. Regardless, it still seems odd of them not to include her when they already introduced a native, Pocahontas-like character called Lani and foreshadowed Pocahontas' appearance in the The Secret Library episode where Sofia passes through the realms of all the official Disney princesses including Pocahontas'.

That's what I believe but the creator claims otherwise.

Quote:
Q: Why Olaf and not Anna and or Elsa?

Craig Gerber: Because Anna and/or Elsa would be more predictable. And we figured we could have more fun with Olaf.

Q: Well, they are not 'official' Disney Princesses, maybe that's why.

Craig Gerber: That's not why. We just chose not to use them. We could have if we wanted to.

Q: Will we eventually see the two?

Craig Gerber: I would imagine so, but no time soon.

Q: I know we've had Olaf on Sofia the First but we all want princess Anna and Elsa! When will you have them on Sofia the First?

Craig Gerber: There was a window where we could have included Elsa & Anna but it closed when Frozen 2 was announced.

Well, regarding the historical issue, why didn't Disney thought of that back in 1995? :P

Really? The rest of the princess didn't have a good story (tiana for example) ¬¬

This tweet doesn't mean that she's not going to appear. I think that is only an excuse but maybe one day se'll appear....

I'm very dissapointed witht that :(

Hold on a sec, none of the Princesses had particular story roles to fulfil ? The links were tenuous at best ... seems more of an excuse more than anything, to say its the story that isn't working. Real shame.

Pocahontas is in my opinion one of the easiest princesses to include in a Sofia story. Maybe have a episode where someone maybe a classmate or Amber, not caring about the nature, or have another story where Sofia should learn to be open about other people's apperances and see that they have alot in common even if they don't look like her.

Sofia the First is ending. Season 4 is going to be the show's last. It will consist of 26 episodes total (24 half-hour episodes and 2 one-hour movies).

Quote:
Q: So, is season 4 going to be the last one?

Craig Gerber: Don't know yet. Just like Doc, we'll have to wait and see. But if either show gets S5, it is exception to the rule.

Q: Is season 4 the last season of Sofia the First?

Craig Gerber: We are not working on anything beyond that yet. But who knows....

Q: Sofia is close to finally find out what being royal is all about. Something she sings on her main theme.

Craig Gerber: You are right. She is getting closer.

Quote:
Q: When you say "wrapping-up" on Sofia the First, do you mean just season 4 or the whole show? Has it been cancelled?

Steve Hulett: My understanding was the show was at (or near) the end of its run. But my understanding may be out of date. I no longer have all the facts at my fingertips.

Quote:
What's the status on Sofia the First? You didn't specify.

Steve Hulett: It's now listed as "ongoing"...with a caveat. This show was supposedly wrapping when I was still gainfully employed but it seems to be going on. If I get further info to the contrary, I will update.

Sofia model sheet for pose reference. She looks much more appealing in 2D.

Agreed. I'd have to say that about all the female 3D characters though. Those big huge eyes look normal on 2D concept sketches of Rapunzel, Elsa, Anna, Moana, etc. but in CG (especially the former three) it's really disorienting. Not sure why that is except for maybe familiarity with 2D.

Archimedes made his first appearance on the show in the episode "The Mystic Isles: The Great Pretender" (season 4, episode 15). He never talked during the episode.
