Disney has green lit the second season of the popular animated show, “Elena of Avalor.”
The storyline follows sixteen year old Princess Elena’s brave journey to save her family from evil sorceress, Shuriki. The episodic series takes place in the same tangent as “Sofia the First.”
Becoming a leader will be her greatest adventure.
As more and more new princesses emerge on screen, it is refreshing to see a new approach on an old tradition. The story of Elena is very much different from the “damsel in distress” persona’s that is resonated with the Disney brand. Elena must overcome bravery, ambition and believing in herself in order to fully function as the Princess of Avalor.
The princess is the first-ever Latina princess to be introduced in Disney’s franchise and is voiced by Aimee Carrero. The series premiered on the Disney channel in the U.S. on July 22, 2016.
Currently, “Elena of Avalor” airs on the Disney channel Friday’s at 7 p.m.
