Elena of Avalor Ready To Rule Review + Give Away

A few months ago, I had the opportunity to interview Aimee Carrero to talk about her new role as the voice of the new Disney Princess, Elena of Avalor. I knew that the show would be a hit with little Latina girls but now I see that little girls of all walks of life love her too! I’ve seen many of Ji’s classmates proudly wearing Elena of Avalor attire and Ji loves her very much too. I know this because we recently received a copy of Elena of Avalor: Ready To Rule to review and Ji has it on repeat! I don’t mind because she’ll ask to watch it in English and then a second time in Spanish.

Interview with Aimee Carrero- Princess ELENA OF AVALOR

A few weeks ago, I was invited to a press junket to interview Aimee Carrero, whom I know and love from the hit series Young and Hungry. She is promoting her latest project, ELENA OF AVALOR, a new animated series on the Disney Channel, where she voices Elena, the first Latina Disney princess. I quickly agreed! She’s making history and I wanted to meet the voice behind the princess that I know my daughter will grow up loving. Actually, let me take that back. Ji already loves Elena.

LAM: How does it feel to be the first Latina Disney Princess? 

AC: It’s a pinch me moment. All the time! 

LAM: You did some singing in the series. Who are your favorite Latin artist? 

AC: I grew up listening to Juan Luis Guerra, a lot of Marc Anthony. I’m from Miami, so Celia Cruz and I also grew up listening to Gloria Estefan (another Miami girl). 

LAM: What’s the one message you want all the little girls, especially the Latina girls to take away from Elena? 

AC: That you can be Latina and do it all.  I hope that Elena will make it a little bit easier for them as they grow up.
