A new magical live action series, The Other Kingdom premieres in the UK on 8th August on Nickelodeon at 6.30pm. It brings together the world of mythical creatures, magical beings and high school teens as the series follows the journey of Fairy Princess Astral (Esther Zynn) 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.
Leaving her fairy world behind to pursue her ultimate dream of life as a mortal, Astral’s adventures begin when she enrolls into Theseus High School as a freshmen exchange student. With the help of her new friends Tristan (Callan Potter), Morgan (Celina Martin) and Devon (Taylor Adams) and magical spells and fairy dust, 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.
My daughter Miss M, has been lucky to preview the first episode of The Other Kingdom and I have to say she was glued, eager to find out what happens next. She was also sent a box of goodies to help her transform into a fairy princess inspired by the style of Astral.
She couldn’t wait to dress up and try out the fairy inspired tattoos and had an afternoon of fun trying out the various items. It also helped her get into the mood and feel of the program leaving her feeling magical and inspired but a world you can only dream about.
Miss M is 8 yrs old and this series is perfect for her age. She found it interesting, different to other series she watches and fell straight into the world of The Other Kingdom wanted to know what happens next. I think it’s great when a series grabs your attention like that and shows that it has a good storyline.
We can’t wait to watch more episodes – make sure you catch the first episode on Nickelodeon 6.30pm Monday 8th August!
We received some fairy inspired goodies for sharing the show information with you.
