Disney Junior Readies ‘Sofia the First’ Spinoff


“Sofia the First” is getting a second — sort of.

Disney Junior is preparing to launch “Elena of Avalor,” featuring a teenaged Latina princess who has been trapped for decades in the signature jeweled amulet that is one of the best-known elements of the current kiddie series. The character of Elena will debut in a special episode of “Sofia the First” that is beginning production now and set to air in 2016. She will then be the center of the new series, produced by Disney Television Animation and slated to debut in the same year.
