This month, Nickelodeon is premiering a brand new show for preschoolers and it’s all Ella has talked about. The 20-episode series follows twin genies-in-training, Shimmer and Shine, who grant wishes for their friend Leah. Of course, their wishes lead to surprising mishaps, but they always find out a way to make the mistakes turn out great.
What a great lesson for kids of all ages!
Shimmer and Shine features a social-emotional curriculum highlighting the importance of teamwork, resilience and overcoming obstacles. The series is created by Farnaz Esnaashari-Charmatz (post-production supervisor for Dora the Explorer, Go, Diego, Go!) and produced at Nickelodeon Animation Studios in Burbank, Calif.
“The beautiful fantasy world of Shimmer and Shine offers endless possibilities for magical adventures and preschoolers will love the genies’ playful humor and enthusiasm,” said Russell Hicks, Nickelodeon’s President of Content Development and Production.
Leading up to the linear series premiere of Shimmer and Shine, NickJr.com and the Nick Jr. App will roll out all-new full-length episodes and short-form content. The Aug. 24 linear series premiere will be available on NickJr.com, Nick Jr. App and Nick VOD beginning Aug. 25.
