Hear 'Mad Men' star Kiernan Shipka guest on 'Sofia the First'

Posted on

Sofia The First
Disney Junior

In this Sunday’s Sofia the First primetime special, Princess Sofia (Modern Family‘s Ariel Winter) will make a very special new friend: Sally Draper.

Okay, not really. But Sofia’s new pal Oona the mermaid is voiced by a familiar TV presence — Kiernan Shipka, best known for playing Don Draper’s increasingly angsty daughter on Mad Men. Sofia meets Oona while on vacation with her family. (The royals get away from it all by heading to their floating palace on the sea. As you do.) After helping out Oona, Sofia finds that she’s sprouted a mermaid tale of her own — setting the stage for a new adventure that will include a special appearance by Ariel, the Little Mermaid herself. (Attention, all Disney obsessives: Ariel’s iconic voice is performed by original voice actress Jodi Benson.)

Catch a glimpse at Sofia and Oona in the clip below. Sofia the First: The Floating Palace airs Sunday, Nov. 24 at 7 p.m.on Disney Junior.
