For the parents, kids, and children aged 99 and below who love watching anything Disney, Sofia the First will not be the last addition to the growing list of princesses.
The list already includes crowd favorites such as Cinderella, Jasmine, Belle, Ariel, Aurora, Snow White, Mulan, Rapunzel, and the later additions Tiana (The Princess and the Frog, 2009) and Merida (Brave, 2009) before Sofia the First’s release in late 2012. Of course, we can’t forget Anna and Elsa of Frozen (2013).
For the benefit of the few who haven’t watched her series, Sofia the First is the cute eight-year-old overnight princess whose commoner mother marries the King.
While this little darling seems to steal the viewers’ hearts, we are expecting two more in a few days or weeks. Here are two Disney princesses to watch out for this year.
1. Elena of Avalor
She has apparently debuted on TV in some countries in July 2016, via demand in Canada. Disney is launching a television movie this November entitled, Elena and the Secret of Avalor.
Elena, a sixteen-yar-old heiress to the throne, will be the first Latina Disney princess ever to come on screen. Her magic-filled character will not have any love interest unlike the others but will be singing on each and every episode.
Moana is the definitely the first Polynesian princess to join the Disney’s growing list of royal heroines. She won’t have a love interest in the movie either and will be on a journey to save her beloved family. She denies being a princess and will have animal sidekicks.
Hawaiian mythology will come to play, as shown by the demi-God Maui voiced by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, who is expected to sing and rap on the upcoming movie.
Kids and grown-ups alike are waiting for these two and future princesses to join the Disney Kingdom.
