This coming Monday 8th August at 6.30pm, Nickelodeon will bring together a world of mythical creatures, magical beings and high school teens with the premiere of The Other Kingdom. The live-action series follows the journey of Fairy Princess Astral who has to choose between being a fairy princess or becoming human, as she is set to inherit the crown of her royal kingdom of Athenia. The Other Kingdom will air weekdays at 6:30pm.
Astral is a 14-year-old princess from Athenia! She has always dreamed of living in the human world with the “Others” and she finally convinces her parents to let her go. Astral enrolls at Theseus High School, where she gets to know her human crush Tristan, becomes friends with Morgan and Devon, and butts heads with Hailey. Looking at her journey through human teen-dom is full of laughs, self-discovery and romance, until a sinister plot threatens the fate of her fairy kingdom. With her time in the human world running out, she is torn between saving her homeland and choosing her new life—and she only has 90 days to decide.

This new magical series is suitable for girls aged 6 onwards. Each episode is approx. 22 minutes long. This is Ms C’s first time watching it and she was engrossed right from the beginning. I think this is because the show mixes magic and real life. The main characters are fun to watch and Ms C loves how Astral is so genuinely innocent and of course her fairy costume. This show will definitely appeal to young girls.
