Sophia the First: Witchcraft 101

Disney Junior’s Sophia the First is yet another deliberate attempt by Disney to turn kids away from God altogether.

While watching the show with my young daughters, it wasn’t long before the words I overheard started ringing alarm bells: ‘Magic amulet’, ‘sorcerer’, ‘witches’, ‘hexes’, and a song called ‘A good little witch’! All these things are forbidden by God.

Disney has always celebrated magic. Magic is just another name for witchcraft. In Disney’s Magic Kingdom,”dreams come true” not by praying to God but by various guises of magic.

Disney’s Big Lie: Good and Bad witches.

Sofia’s Song ‘ Good little Witch’:

Friendships don’t mix
With hexes and tricks,
And that’s why the kids turn and run.
So if I were you
Here’s what I do,
I fix all the bad things I’ve done…

Cause you wanna be
A good little witch,
They’ll give you a chance
If you make a switch.
You’ll make lots of friends
Without any hitch,
If you could be a good…
Little Witch.

The Bible is quite clear: there are no good witches or wizards:

In Deuteronomy 18:10-12, sorcery is listed among the sinful practices of the nations surrounding Israel. God calls it an abomination: “There shall not be found among you . . . anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD. And because of these abominations the LORD your God is driving them out before you.”

What does God say about people who use amulets? “They are full of superstitions from the East; they practice divination like the Philistines and clasp hands with pagans” (Isaiah 2:6, NIV). The Bible further warns us, “In that day, the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, headbands, crescent ornaments, dangling earrings, bracelets, veils, headdresses, ankle chains, sashes, perfume boxes [and] amulets” (Isaiah 3:18-20, NAS).

Satan is playing a very nasty trick on our children. Disney is presenting two kinds of witches and wizards: evil ones and good ones. The books and movies offer a “built-in” contrast so that no one looks elsewhere for a contrast. That is, the “good” witches look very good compared to the “evil” witches. The psychological effect is that the mind of the reader or viewer becomes satisfied with the “fair balance” and sees no reason to look outside the movie or book for more accurate information. Consequently, millions of people will read a Harry Potter book and never read the Bible to see what God says about witches and wizards.

Magic according to Disney:

Magic seems to be a natural force and as such, it does not care about good or evil. Magic is used through spells, which can be either potions or verbal or non-verbal incantations, which turns real the users’ desire but often breaks the laws of nature in the process.
Sophia the First characters include:
Lucinda (The closest female name to Lucifer?)

Lucinda caused trouble in the kingdom a few months after Sofia became a Princess, and hexed every single kid in Enchancia. But thanks to her first friend Sofia, she became a good witch and made up for her hexing and now uses her magic the good of others.
Lucinda comes from a family of witches (her parents, grandparents, even her great-grandparents were all witches), and since all they did was hex people, it was all she knew how to do.

Lucinda has show to be an uncommonly powerful witch for someone her age, though her mother is stronger due to experience. However, witches and sorcerers may be more naturally talented at magic than common people, such as most of the students at Royal Prep.

Lucinda is able to undo her hexes, dispelling any spells she casts on someone. Interestingly, when she hexes something or someone, her magic is blue. When she undoes her hexes or something nice, her magic is pink. This is similar to how Cedric’s magic is blue when he is feeling positive and green when he is feeling negative. She is unable to unhex something another witch does, because she’s not a full grown witch yet.

Lucinda is also a skilled Conjuror, able to magically make things appear out of thin air, such as wrapped presents, an entire dinner, fireworks, etc.

Lucinda is also able to move things without touching them, an ability called telekinesis.

And of course, she is able to fly on her broomstick.

Marla, a witch and Lucinda’s mother.

She is a witch and  Lucinda’s mother and just like her daughter before she became a good little witch, she is a wicked witch who likes to hex people and cause trouble. She embraces the family legacy and takes great pleasure from hexing people. Her favorite holiday is Mother’s Day because she spends it with Lucinda making bigger and bigger hexes. She was shocked when Lucinda announced she was a good witch and had friends. To make Lucinda happy she undid her floating island hex and joined the Royal Family for lunch. She is willing to support Lucinda’s change of heart, but hopes its only a phase.

As an older witch, Marla can cast more powerful spells than her daughter can, ones that are much too powerful for a younger witch to undo.
Using her wand (like her daughter’s, looks like a long, leafy twig), she is able to cast hexes to play tricks on people. A lot of her hexes appear very dangerous, like summoning huge rapids or causing an entire island to float out of the water.

Cedric the Sorcerer
Cedric is a bumbling sorcerer whose spells often don’t work very well, though he takes great pride in, and often brags about, his abilities. He wants to steal Sofia’s Amulet of Avalor, hoping to use it to take over the kingdom and reign as a dictator-like king. In order to achieve this, he often tries to trick Sofia into giving it to him, though his attempts usually fail, due to his bumbling nature.

Goodwin the great

Goodwin the Great is a great sorcerer and the father of Cedric the Sorcerer in the Disney Junior series Sofia the First.
He has apparently retired as the Kingdom’s Royal Sorcerer, his son succeeding him, and he and his wife, Winifred, are living in Mystic Meadows a retirement home for sorcerers. However, he left his son a painting of himself and Winifred that enables them to come to Cedric any time.

Cedric’s father, Goodwin the Great, was the Royal Sorcerer of Enchancia before him, and was considered the greatest sorcerer the kingdom had ever had, saving King Roland I’s life many times (nine-and-a-half). While Goodwin was honest and moralistic, his wife Winifred, Cedric’s mother, was vain and ambitious while doting on her son, encouraging Cedric to make the wrong decisions. Cedric seems to get along better with his mother, while having a more hostile relationship with his father. This is likely due to the fact that his mother coddles him, while his father tries to push him in the right direction. His relationship with his father may also be the result of how often Cedric is compared to him and frequently said to not be as good as he was.

Amulet of Avalor
“With each deed performed, for better or worse, a power is granted, a blessing or curse.”
―Cedric’s spellbook about the Amulet of Avalor

The Amulet of Avalor is an enchanted necklace that appears in the Disney Junior series Sofia the First, that bestows upon its wearer magical abilities depending on either a good or bad deed. It can be assumed that the wearer’s good deeds bestows magical abilities; whereas misdeeds cause the wearer to be cursed. Also, according to Cinderella, the Amulet connects all of the princesses that ever existed.

The Amulet was a welcoming gift from King Roland II to his new daughter, Sofia, though he briefly thought about giving her a ruby necklace, because he remembered that it was rumored to guide and watch over its princess, therefore something a new princess would need.

Conclusion:

With this show Disney is preparing the younger viewers to graduate to even higher levels of witchcraft indoctrination such as the new Teen book series W.I.T.C.H.

The books are about five teenage girls (ages 13-14) who practice witchcraft. Disney is not only selling witchcraft, they are selling lust and astrology – to children!

    What about the fact that “Cedric the Sorcerer” dresses and acts about as GAY or EFFEMINATE as any “male” of that time period could possibly look without actually coming out and saying that he is? And that he has never been seen with a wife or a girlfriend despite being plenty old enough to have one?

Why is Disney (and other networks like it) always promoting weak, inadequate, or effeminate males next to strong, dominant, super-intelligent females? Why, in so many children’s shows, is the BROTHER the younger, smaller, or less intelligent/mature of the two kids in a family, and why aren’t men/dads more protective and charge-taking when problems arise?
