Disney Announces its Very First Latina Princess – PHOTO
The very first Latina Princess (ever) is coming to Disney in 2016.
Princess Elena of the kingdom of Avalor will make her triumphant debut on an episode of the Disney Junior television show Sofia the First, which is aimed at preschoolers.
From there, she will spin-off to become the star of her own series: Elena of Avalor.
16-year-old Elena was described by Disney in a statement as “a confident and compassionate teenager in an enchanted fairy tale kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore.”
As expected of the network, Elena will be accompanied by a creature of some sort. This indeterminate creature will be named Skylar and as the name suggests, it can fly.
Princess Elena also has a sister named Isabel and is pals with Mateo, who happens to be a wizard in training.
She will be voiced by Aimee Carrero, who you can catch on the ABC Family show Young & Hungry.
