Elena of Avalor (TV show) title character
"Elena of Avalor' is an animated television series on Disney Junior that is a spin-off of "Sofia the First."

Princess Elena of Avalor is a confident and compassionate teenager in an enchanted fairytale kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore. The role of 16-year-old Princess Elena, the bold, caring, funny and clever ascendant to the throne in the fairytale kingdom of Avalor, is voiced by Aimee Carrero ("Young & Hungry").

 Princess Elena's journey began long ago when her parents and kingdom were taken from her by the evil sorceress, Shuriki. Elena bravely faced the sorceress to protect her little sister, Princess Isabel, and grandparents but in the process, her magical amulet pulled her inside its enchanted jewel, saving her life but imprisoning her at the same time. Decades later, Princess Sofia of Enchancia discovers the truth about the amulet she has worn since joining her royal family and sets out to restore Elena to her human form and help her return to the kingdom of Avalor.

While Elena is the rightful heir to the throne, she is only age 16 so she will rule Avalor with the help of a Grand Council comprised of her Grandfather Tito, Grandmother Cici and Royal Advisor, Duke Esteban.

With some magical friends by her side — Mateo, a wizard-in-training, and Skylar, a magical flying creature — Princess Elena's further adventures will lead her to understand that her new role requires thoughtfulness, resilience and compassion, the traits of all truly great leaders.

The stories are guided by an established curriculum that nurtures multiple areas of child development: physical, emotional, social and cognitive; thinking and creative skills, as well as moral and ethical development. Created for kids age 2-7 and their families, the stories are designed to communicate positive messages and life lessons that are applicable to young children about leadership, resilience, diversity, compassion and the importance of family and family traditions.

The voice cast also includes Jenna Ortega ("Jane the Virgin," "Stuck in the Middle") as Elena's younger sister, Princess Isabel; Chris Parnell ("Saturday Night Live," "Archer"), Yvette Nicole Brown ("Community") and Carlos Alazraqui (Disney Junior's "Sheriff Callie's Wild West") as Migs, Luna and Skylar respectively, magical flying creatures called Jaquins who support Elena as she learns how to rule her kingdom; Emiliano D�ez ("George Lopez") as Elena's grandfather Francisco; Julia Vera ("General Hospital") as her grandmother Luisa; Christian Lanz ("Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles") as Elena's uncle and Royal Advisor Duke Esteban; Jillian Rose Reed ("Awkward.") as Elena's best friend Naomi; Joseph Haro ("Awkward.") as another of Elena's close friends, Mateo, a wizard-in-training; Jorge Diaz ("Days of our Lives") as Elena's friend and rising star of the Royal Guard, Gabe; Keith Ferguson ("Sofia the First") as Zuzo, a mysterious and wily spirit animal that acts as a link between the human and spirit worlds; and Joe Nunez ("Bridesmaids") as Armando, a frazzled palace servant who helps Elena on her journey to the throne.

"Elena of Avalor" is a production of Disney Television Animation and is executive-produced by Craig Gerber ("Sofia the First"). Silvia Cardenas Olivas ("Moesha," "The Brothers Garcia"), an alumna of the National Hispanic Media Coalition's Television Writers Program, is the story editor, and Elliot M. Bour ("The Little Engine That Could") is the supervising director. The series' cultural advisors are Doris Sommer, Harvard University professor and Director of Graduate Studies in Spanish; and Marcela Davison Aviles, Managing Director and Executive Producer, El Camino Project, an international Latino arts initiative.
