The 27-year-old actress voices the title character in the upcoming Disney Junior series.
In the animated series, which is a spinoff from Sofia The First, centers on Elena, whose journey began long ago when her parents and kingdom were taken from her by the evil sorceress Shuriki.
She bravely faced the sorceress to protect her little sister, Princess Isabel (Jenna Ortega), and grandparents but in the process, her magical amulet pulled her inside its enchanted jewel, saving her life but imprisoning her at the same time.
Decades later, Princess Sofia of Enchancia (Ariel Winter) discovers the truth about the amulet she has worn since joining her royal family and sets out to restore Elena to her human form and help her return to the kingdom of Avalor.
Elena of Avalor will premiere later this year on Disney Junior.
Alyson Stoner twirls around in these gorgeous new shots from her feature in the new issue of Cliche magazine.
The 22-year-old actress and singer opened up with the mag about her new music, looking ahead to new projects and more. Check it:
On being thankful for her past projects: “To be blunt, I’ve been a pawn on many chessboards. I do not regret or resent any of my early entertainment experience—that’s my launch pad and the first chapters of my story—but I am ready to take the driver’s seat of my artistic journey and share a piece of myself—my fingerprint, my heartbeat—with fans. I’m ready to be vulnerable about my humanity in hopes that it connects to and inspires others.”
On her music: “There’s strength, vigor, passion, and authenticity in the lyrics and melodies. We use universal rhythms and international grooves in the production. It’s spontaneous and powerful, and it moves each listener differently. I learned about music through movement, actually. What a gift…As I create in the studio, I stand up and dance to see how my body responds to sounds and rhythms.”
On the Missy Elliott tribute video: “I was returning home from a film premiere when I received 400 messages asking why I wasn’t at the Super Bowl with Missy Elliott. The following day, media outlets were asking me to comment about her performance. I wanted to show honor and gratitude in a fun way, so I got my friends together and within three days, choreographed, filmed, edited, and released the tribute for the world. Who knew all this would happen?”
Alyson‘s new single, “Woman” is out NEXT Friday, February 19th.
Stuck In The Middle‘s Kayla Maisonet will be taking over JJJ’s Instagram and Twitter on SUNDAY, February 14th for the preview of her new show on Disney Channel. Be sure to follow along with #KaylaJJJTakeover!
Arthur Darvill keeps a low profile while touching down at the airport on Monday (February 8) in Vancouver, Canada.
The 33-year-old actor is back in town to continue filming his hit show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
“What appealed to me the most is that [Rip Hunter is] such an interesting character,” Arthur recently told Collider.com. “He’s arrogant and he’s cocky, but he’s also a bit hurt. He thinks that he can be the thing to change the world and right all the wrongs of his time, and then he realizes that he can’t really. Only with everyone’s help, can he do it. It’s a complicated journey that he’s on, and that’s what really appealed to me about doing this.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursdays @ 8PM on The CW.
