Development

Development of Princess Power began in 2018 after it was optioned by Atomic Cartoons.[3]

It was important for the show to examine the aspects embodied by traditional animated princesses and look at how it might be possible to preserve the elements that draw so many people towards them, especially young children, but evolve that definition to prioritize being more active, empathetic, and to also just be yourself.[4][5]

The fundamental DNA of the show revolves around the understanding that "Princess is a verb, not a noun". This crystallization came from showrunner Elise Allen after reading Princesses Wear Pants. The core message of the show is that "it's not what you wear but what you do that makes all the difference".[6]

For executive producer Savannah Guthrie, It was important that, "You don't have to see a carbon copy of yourself. You just have to see an aspect that you can connect with and that tells you you're accepted". One example of this in the show is by Princess Beatrice having gay dads.[7]

Soundtrack

On January 27, 2023, songs from the first season were released on multiple streaming services.[8]

All tracks are written by JP Rende, Kathryn Raio-Rende, and Alana Da Fonseca
