Disney Has Finally Created A Latina Princess

The 16-year-old princess will have her own Disney Junior show in 2016.

Here's a look at Disney's first Latina princess. Hi Elena!

Viewers will meet her for the first time in an upcoming episode of Sofia the First.

Here's what we know about Elena:

- She's 16.

- She comes from the Kingdom of Avalor.

- She is, according to Disney, "inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore."

- She'll be introduced in a special episode of the Disney Junior series Sofia the First in 2016.

- She'll have her own series, Elena of Avalor, also kicking off in 2016.

- She battled an evil sorceress named Shuriki.

- She has a little sister, Princess Isabel, her grandfather Tito, and her grandmother Cici.

- In trying to save her family from Shuriki, she was pulled into her own magical amulet. You know, princess stuff.

- Princess Sofia, who now wears the amulet, restores Elena to her human form and helps her return to Avalor.

- Elena's best friends are Mateo, who is training to be a wizard, and Skylar, a flying creature.

And she's voiced by actress Aimee Carrero.

Can't wait to meet you, Elena!
