Get ready to meet Disney’s newest princess — Elena of Avalor!
Disney’s first Latina Princess is set to make her debut around the Disney Parks this coming August, according to the Disney Parks blog. Elena will appear in Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort.
She’ll also make her debut on television this year on Sofia the First, before getting her own series.
In the animated series 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.
