Disney Junior Launches First Spanish-Language Appisode with "Sofia the First: the Great Aunt-Venture"

A Spanish-language version of the "Sofia the First: the Great Aunt-Venture" appisode is now live in the App Store for $4.99 on the groundbreaking Disney Junior Appisodes app, which allows fans ages 2-7 to touch, tap, swipe, tilt, shake and talk their way through various fun-filled activities embedded into full episodes of some of their favorite Disney Junior shows.

In "Sofia the First: the Great Aunt-Venture," Sofia reluctantly agrees to help her Aunt Tilly bake a pie, but this is no dull day in the kitchen. In search of the perfect apples, Sofia and Aunt Tilly end up on a journey full of unexpected obstacles that kids can help Sofia navigate, including the following:

· Trying on magic jumping shoes

· Soaring through the sunflower maze

· Flying through the air on a magic kite

· Crossing a giant's gorge to discover the Arabella Orchard

· Speaking the secret phrase so that the Locus Pocus Map will reveal the Wombeast's lair

The Disney Junior Appisodes app currently includes a free download of the original "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally" Appisode, as well as additional appisodes for such popular shows as "Sofia the First," "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" and "Doc McStuffins," all of which are available for $4.99. Well received by both fans and the industry, the Disney Junior Appisode app topped iTunes charts for weeks - making it to #1 on the Overall Free list - and won the 2012 Mobile Excellence Award for Best Content Extension Made for Mobile, as well as the iKids award for Best Web/App Series.

Disney Junior also recently launched Disney Junior en Español on the industry-defining WATCH Disney Junior app, marking the first time the network has made an entire block of programming available in Spanish on mobile devices. Disney Junior en Español kicked off May 30 with the world premiere of the new "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" episode "Donald Jr." and includes Spanish-language versions of such popular shows as "Sofia the First," "Doc McStuffins," "Jake and the Never Land Pirates," "Mickey Mouse Clubhouse" and "Henry Hugglemonster," as well as short-form series "Minnie's Bow-Toons" and "The Doc Files." Android and Kindle Fire users can also draw, paint and color pages from their favorite Disney Junior shows with Disney Junior Color! en Español.

Developed by Disney/ABC Television Group, WATCH Disney Junior is part of the company's ground-breaking WATCH services, which make it possible for fans to watch popular shows anytime, anywhere on demand via desktops, connected TVs, smartphones and tablets. Fans who verify with a participating TV provider can access a live stream of Disney Junior, as well as exclusive programming events and the all-new Radio Disney Junior.
