More adventures awaits the crown princess of Avalor, Elena in the new special episode of Elena of Avalor on Disney Channel.
Princess Elena is back with a new adventure in Elena of Avalor: Realm of the Jaquins on Saturday 10 February at 08:35 on Disney Channel and streaming on DStv Now.
This special episode was originally meant to be the finale of the series, but ended up being its own stand-alone event. Elena gets raveled up in all sorts of drama after she travels to the mystical realm of the Jacquins where she accidently releases a mythical forest sprite that could endanger the kingdom of Avalor.
Get ready to jump into the action and magic but before we do, let’s find out a bit more about Disney’s feisty princess of Avalor, Elena and the popular series.
Elena was trapped in the Amulet of Avalor - which you may recognize as being princess Sofia's amulet from Sofia the First. After quite an adventure, Sofia is the reason behind Elena getting freed.
- Elena is voiced by Aimee Carrero - she stars in Young and Hungry where her bubbly character shares the same name as Sofia! It was clearly all meant to be!
- Elena's singing voice is provided by Emily Deschanel - yes, New Girl star Zooey Deschanel's sister!
- If we want to be technical, Elena is the second oldest Disney princess: she's 58 years-old while being biologically 17 years old. Kida from Atlantis: The Lost Empire takes the first spot by being over 8000 years old!
- Wondering what Elena's name means? It loosely translates into “Shining Light”. We know she's a shining light to her kingdom of Avalor.
- Elena is Disney's first Latina princess and draws from various Latina cultures to make up the princess we know and love today.
Watch Elena of Avalor: Realm of the Jaquins on Saturday 10 February at 08:35 on Disney Channel and streaming on DStv Now.
