Elena of Avalor Will Be Disney's First Latina Princess!

Disney has found its first Hispanic princess in Elena of Avalor and we are already loving her!

The character will make her debut in 2016 on the Disney Junior show, Sofia the First.

Elena is described as “a confident and compassionate teenager in an enchanted fairy tale kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore,” according to a statement from the network.

The character will be brought to life by Aimee Carrero of ABC Family’s Young & Hungry.

After debuting on Sofia the First, Princess Elena will get her own spin-off series that same year.

    Latina and Hispanic are not interchangeable. Latina/Latino is a person who lives in Mexico, Central America or South America. They can be Hispanic, or non-Hispanic, Black, White, Asian etc.
    Hispanic is a person with some or all Spanish heritage. So which is she?
