The brand new series tells the story of Princess Elena, a bold, caring, funny and clever 16-year-old who is ascendant to the throne in the fairytale kingdom of Avalor.  The series follows the story of Elena, who saves her kingdom from an evil sorceress and must now learn to rule with the support of her appointed Grand Council and some magical friends by her side. Elena’s adventures will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders, while highlighting the importance of family and family traditions.

I had the privilege to watch a pre screening of the show. It was everything I thought it would be. Growing up I never had a princess that I could relate too, so this was a big deal for Latinas world wide. I really appreciated the fact that Elena was not from a specific country she was a mix of all of us. After the screening the guest were allowd to ask questions. Aimee Carrero (voice of Elena) shared how amazing and honored she felt being part of Elena of Avalor. She shared that growing up she felt like she didn’t see herself represented in the media and now the future latin generation will have that representation.
