Princess Elena of Avalor will make her royal debut in the highly anticipated animated series “Elena of Avalor,” with a one-hour premiere event FRIDAY, JULY 22 (7:00-8:00 p.m., EDT), on Disney Channel. The theme song is performed by Gaby Moreno, Latin Grammy Award winner for Best New Artist, and Elena’s anthem “My Time” is performed by Aimee Carrero.
As highlighted earlier today on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America,’ Disney’s newest princess is Elena of Avalor, a 16 year old latina princess who is destined to rule the land of Avalor. At this year’s New York International Toy Fair, we previewed new lines of dolls, toys and role play outfits and accessories from companies such as Hasbro, JAKKS Pacific and Just Play, which you can explore today in both photos as well as videos.
Just ahead of the New York International Toy Fair which kicks off Saturday, Febuary 13, Disney and Hasbro have shared a first look at the ‘Elena of Avalor’ doll being produced in support of the new animated Disney Junior series. The doll is seen here, held by Aimee Carrero, who voices the title character.
‘Elena of Avalor’ will first appear as part of a crossover episode on ‘Sofia the First’ before launching its own series. It was recently announced that Jenna Ortega will also star as Elena’s younger sister, Princess Isabel; and Chris Parnell, Yvette Nicole Brown and Carlos Alazraqui will voice Migs, Luna and Skylar respectively, magical flying creatures called Jaquins who support Elena as she learns how to rule her kingdom.
Later this year, Princess Elena of Avalor, the first Disney princess inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore, will make her debut in a special episode of Disney Junior’s hit series “Sofia the First,” followed shortly thereafter by the launch of the animated series “Elena of Avalor.” As previously announced, the series will follow Elena (voiced by Aimee Carrero of Freeform’s “Young & Hungry”), a 16-year-old ascendant to the throne of the fairytale kingdom of Avalor.
