Princess Sarah is a 2007 Philippine television series based on the 1985 Japanese anime series of the same title, produced by Nippon Animation and based on Frances Hodgson Burnett's novel A Little Princess. It is topbilled by Sharlene San Pedro as Sarah Crewe.[1] The series was aired on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida evening block and worldwide on The Filipino Channel from November 12, 2007 to December 21, 2007, replacing Kokey.

The series was shot in Camp John Hay in Baguio City and the Coconut Palace in Manila. Unlike the 1995 Filipino film and the Japanese anime series it was based from, which in turn was based on Burnett's original novel, the Teleserye adaptation took even more creative liberties from the original story, with Ram Dass being depicted as a female sorceress, Lavinia as Miss Minchin's daughter, and fantasy elements being introduced in the story.


Sarah Crewe studies in a boarding school for rich girls. Although motherless, Sarah is rich in love showered by her father, Captain Cristopher Crewe. But one day her father has to leave for an expedition and is lost and presumed dead.

The sufferings of Sarah begin, as she was reduced to poverty and was forced to live a life as a servant in Miss Minchin's seminary.
