All Disney Princesses have their origin stories, and most are found in story books and fairy tales we all grew up with. But Elena of Avalor is a different kind of princess, based on a mixture of different Latinx cultures and folklore, Elena brings a new twist on the traditional princess model. Elena is training to become a queen of her own kingdom, and doesn’t need to be saved, instead works together with her friends and family and the show focuses heavily on the message of teamwork and friendship.
Elena’s story began on a made for TV movie Elena and the Secret of Avalor, which is now on DVD, and fans fell in love with this strong princess character. The movie also brings in Princess Sofia (Sofia the First) and helps launch the episodic adventures of Elena that you can now find on Disney Junior. The show has become such a hit with fans, that now you can find a ton of Elena products for your own little princess. Disney sent us a variety of new items to check out, and share with our readers.
