For years I craved a Disney Princess I could identify with... and with time, Disney's made improvements to their princess lineup. But they've never explicitly come out with a Latina princess. Until now! Elena of Avalor, Disney’s first Latina princess has arrived and she will get her own TV series on the network starting July 22.
They have also said that the series will be filled with culturally rich music like salsa and Chilean hip-hop and original songs. “It’s not a secret that the Hispanic and Latino communities have been waiting and hoping and looking forward to our introduction of a princess that reflected their culture,” said Disney exec Nancy Kanter to the New York Times.
