Channel 5’s Milkshake commissions new “Little Princess”

// Hot off the Press


Channel 5 today announced that they have commissioned season four of pre-school series, Little Princess from The Illuminated Film Company. The order of 35, 11-minute episodes of the animated series will begin production later this year and will air on Channel 5’s hugely popular pre-school block, Milkshake! in 2018.

Milkshake is committed to giving viewers the best in pre-school content and we have a strong track record when it comes to developing and launching successful UK series. Little Princess is one of Milkshake’s many successful original commissions and I’m sure that our audiences will be charmed by the stories and adventures within the new series.

-Sarah Muller, Head of Children’s, Channel 5

Starring Julian Clary and Jane Horrocks and based on the original picture books by Tony Ross, Little Princess follows the adventures of the only child in a royal household and has been BAFTA nominated four-times. The series first premiered on Milkshake! in October 2006 and currently airs every day on Milkshake! Fans of the series can watch full episodes on My5 while Little Princess games and activities are available at

As Little Princess would say: ‘Hello, I’m back again!’ And because of her catchy enthusiasm for every aspect of life, we are equally excited to be ‘managing’ her again. Prepare for more surprises and adventures with all the ‘gang’!

-Iain Harvey, Producer, Little Princess
