Tales of Empowerment Power a Ñew Generation

Disney's first Latina Princess Elena of Avalor

Disney’s Elena of Avalor animated television series launched to overwhelming applause for the program’s ground-breaking embrace of Latino culture. From the start, her creative wizards at Disney Channel were inspired by Latino culture, customs and heritage as their journey began to create a new world for a new Disney princess. Season two will begin airing this month and a third season is in production – which says something about a kid’s program where the qualities of leadership, empathy and love of family share equal billing. Learn more about the making of this wonderful series.
