My girls are huge fans of Mia and Me so they were thrilled to find out three of their favorite episodes are now on DVD! When I opened up the package my 4 year old literally screamed out loud, grabbed the DVD, and ran away with it. I had to explain to her that I could not put it on unless she handed it back over to me. We watched it all the way through (twice) the day that it came. I love Mia and Me because it is a great way for my girls to learn about the power of teamwork (something they need help on sometimes) and how to discover their inner hero. Mia and Me follows 12 year old Mia as she discovers a portal to the magical land of Centopia. She has to team up with friends to save it from the evil Queen Panthea. It is a mix of live action and animation. This show is fun for all ages – I admit, I enjoy watching it as well. Pre-order your copy here.
Mia & Me: Friends to the Rescue features episodes four, five, and six of the series.
A scuffle with Violetta leaves Mia worried about having her secret exposed and Vincent frustrated with once again being left in the dark. In Centopia, the unusually grim oracle leads Mia to rescue Lyria in the Valley of Vapors, where she becomes lost – and in need of rescuing herself. Though Yuko and Mo find her in time, the invaluable Trumptus is left behind accidentally for Panthea to fulfill the oracle’s ominous prophecy.
“The Golden Son”
A quick-thinking Vincent helps Mia evade Violetta and her cronies, who are determined to get their hands on Mia’s mysterious book. Still unsure if she can trust Vincent with the truth, Mia disappears to Centopia in time to find Lyria in need of urgent help. With the help of the Water and Wind Unicorns, Mia and her friends are able to get Lyria the help she needs. Mia later witnesses an amazing event: the birth of a golden-horned unicorn who may be the key to restoring hope to Centopia.
On a field trip to a museum, Mia and Vincent avoid Paula, the latest of Violetta’s accomplices recruited to spy on Mia. When she finally escapes to Centopia, the excitement over Onchao’s ability to restore dead lands and to locate Trumptus pieces is short-lived when Lyria is taken captive by Gargona and her Munculus army. A newly determined Mia vows to protect Onchao with all her might and to find all of the pieces of the Trumptus so the safety of Centopia can be restored.
