For those who may be unfamiliar with Disney’s first Latina Princesa, here is a synopsis for the series: “Princess Elena is on a journey that began years earlier when evil sorceress Shuriki took her parents and kingdom from her. Now, having defeated Shuriki, the royal teenager is due to take her place on the throne but needs help ruling Avalor — that assistance comes in the form of the Grand Council, made up of Grandfather Tito, Grandmother Cici and royal adviser Duke Esteban. Princess Elena goes on adventures — with wizard-in-training Mateo and magical Skylar at her side — that help her understand the traits that make a good leader.” Elena of Avalor is a spin-off series from Disney Junior’s Sofia the First.
We can’t wait to see the first images of this mysterious Jewish Princess, and to see Elena at her royal coronation!
