Arlington, Va. – September XX, 2017 – Today, PBS Distribution announced the DVD release of “SUPER WHY!: SLEEPING BEAUTY AND OTHER FAIRYTALE ADVENTURES.” The new DVD from the hit PBS KIDS series takes the Super Readers on four classic fairytale adventures.
First, the Super Readers soar into the tale of Sleeping Beauty. When Sleeping Beauty just wants to snooze all day instead of playing outside with her friends, Super Why and the gang use their literacy powers to encourage her to try new things. Then, the Super Readers help a princess and a frog learn how to compromise and play together. Super Why and his friends also discover the secrets of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, and more.
“SUPER WHY!: SLEEPING BEAUTY AND OTHER FAIRYTALE ADVENTURES” ($9.99 SRP) will be available on DVD beginning October 31, 2017 and has a run time of approximately 113 minutes. Episodes included on the DVD are also available for digital download.
The episodes on this DVD include:
The Super Readers travel into the famous story of Sleeping Beauty to speak with a Princess who loves sleeping just as much as Princess Pea loves tea parties! The Super Readers apply their literacy powers to wake Sleeping Beauty…and wake her…and wake her again! Can they convince their new friend that there’s more to life than snoozing or will she always find other activities a big snore?
“The Frog Prince”
Princess Pea wants to do ballet, and Spider wants to spin webs, so how will these two friends play together? To find some answers, the Super Readers check out The Frog Prince and meet another Princess who can’t see eye to eye with her friend. Will the Super Readers be able to help the Princess and the Frog kiss and make up?
“The Twelve Dancing Princesses”
Whyatt’s family is acting very sneaky and he wants to know why! The Super Readers waltz into the story of the Twelve Dancing Princesses – who are acting just as secretive. The Super Readers may be hot on the trail of the Princesses to discover what they’re concealing, but will Whyatt uncover what his family is hiding?
“Princess Gwennie Saves the Day”
Princess Pea is feeling dramatic (as usual) and she and Red are staging a play. Princess is pretending she’s a queen but Red doesn’t know what to be! The Super Readers fly into the story of a princess with a silly sense of humor and a big job to do. They help Gwennie use her talents to save the day, and Red discovers her own special gifts.
SUPER WHY! helps kids learn the fundamentals of reading through interactive storybook adventures. The program features a team of superhero characters with reading powers who jump into books to find answers to everyday preschool challenges. SUPER WHY! airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).
