When I first heard about Elena of Avalor in 2016 I was excited. This was the first time there was going to be a Latina princess on the Disney Channel with her own show. My daughter was excited too because this was another show that she could watch with a Disney princess on it. Now two years later the show still continues to delight us with fun stories and great messages about family and responsibility.

If you are unfamiliar with Elena, it is a story about a 16-year-old Latina princess who is learning about her role as a leader and all that it entails. Elena at times does not take the advice of those around her and at times does what she wants, which ends up in her learning valuable lessons in what it takes to be a leader.

Elena was imprisoned in a magical amulet by Shuriki, voiced by Jane Fonda, and when released she gained the power to use magic when holding her royal scepter and she can also see and talk to spirit animals. Seeing the jaquins help Elena and her friend on their adventures is pretty cool and the jaquins guide and support Elena.

This is a great show for all children because the lessons of being thoughtful and showing compassion for others is universal. It is also great to see this young lady be the ruler of this kingdom and still have some flaws in how to be a good leader.  I also think the songs that are sung in the show are pretty catchy and will have you singing them once the show is over.

In the Realm of the Jaquins, Elena is challenged by some old foes, must stop a mythical forest sprite from destroying her kingdom and gain the trust of the leader of the jaquins.

Here is the official word about Elena of Avalor: Realm of the Jaquins.

Join Crown Princess Elena as she soars through a hidden gateway into Vallestrella, the mysterious, dazzling domain of the jaquins. On the way there, she accidentally releases a mythical forest sprite that could endanger Avalor! Now Elena must find the jaquins’ magical, legendary Sunbird Oracle to save the kingdom!
