The Disney princesses have their first Latina member! Princess Elena of Avalor will make her debut in the Disney Channel series “Sofia the First” before starring in her own series on the Disney channel. Disney says she is “a confident and compassionate teenager in an enchanted fairytale kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore.” Her voice will be provided by Dominican Republic-born Aimee Carrero of ABC Family’s Young & Hungry. I’m really looking forward to it.
