Hispanic Disney Princesses

Disney Channel's New Series Features Princess 'Elena of Avalor'

— July 20, 2016 — Pop Culture
The newest Disney Princess, 'Elena of Avalor,' is finally here and is part of a full-fledged Disney Channel TV series. Disney Junior initially indicated Elena would descend from one specific Hispanic culture, but in light of the premiere, there's been a change. The team behind Elena of Avalor ended up developing the kingdom of Avalor and its characters as a representation of all of Latin America.

Disney did extensive research and worked to incorporate music, folklore, traditions, animals and plant life that originate from different Latin countries. The palace is inspired by Caribbean, colonial Spanish and Mexican architecture. The score is diverse with salsa, merengue, Chilean hip-hop and several other Latin genres of music. Many of the animals are hybrids of indigenous Latin American species.

The introduction of Latina Disney princess Elena of Avalor allows Disney to connect with the growing Hispanic population in the US and young girls in South America.
Trend Themes
1. Representation of Diversity in Media - There is an opportunity for other entertainment companies to follow Disney's lead and create more diverse and inclusive characters and storylines.
2. Cultural Integration in Entertainment - By incorporating music, folklore, traditions, and architecture from different cultures, there is potential for entertainment industries to create engaging and immersive experiences for diverse audiences.
3. Targeting Niche Demographics - The success of Elena of Avalor showcases the potential for targeting underrepresented demographics, such as the growing Hispanic population, to tap into new markets and increase brand loyalty.
Industry Implications
1. Entertainment - Entertainment companies can explore opportunities to incorporate diverse cultures and characters to appeal to a wider range of audiences and drive engagement.
2. Media and Broadcasting - Media and broadcasting industries can prioritize the integration of diverse perspectives and stories to better reflect the multicultural society and connect with underserved audiences.
3. Marketing and Advertising - Marketing and advertising professionals can develop targeted campaigns that resonate with specific demographics, such as the Hispanic population, to drive brand awareness and customer loyalty.
