We love all things Disney as I’m sure you do too. When I come to hear of anything amazing coming to the big screen or the small screen, I always like to share it with you – to keep the anticipation going.
This Spring Disney Junior will be featuring some favourites from the movies.
For the first time ever, Disney’s “Frozen” will be presented on Disney Junior, in Spring 2016. From Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Frozen” is the highest grossing animated feature film ever and has won multiple awards including two Academy Awards®, a Golden Globe® and two Grammy® Awards.
Fan favourite Olaf then makes a special appearance on the hit series for kids age 2-7, “Sofia the First,” in Spring 2016 on Disney Junior.
Josh Gad is the voice of Olaf in the “Sofia the First” special titled “The Secret Library: Olaf and the Tale of Miss Nettle,” the second episode of a four-part story arc. Megan Mullally returns as the voice of Miss Nettle, a role for which she received an Emmy Award nomination earlier this year. Eric Stonestreet and Hugh Bonneville recur as Sofia’s flying horse Minimus and the Narrator, respectively.
And later on in the year –
Princess Elena of Avalor, the first Disney princess inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore, will make her debut in a special episode of Disney Junior’s hit series “Sofia the First,” followed shortly thereafter by the launch of the animated series “Elena of Avalor.” As previously announced, the series will follow Elena (voiced by Aimee Carrero of Freeform’s “Young & Hungry”), a 16-year-old ascendant to the throne of the fairytale kingdom of Avalor.
Additional casting was recently announced. Jenna Ortega (“Jane the Virgin,” Disney Channel’s upcoming series “Stuck in the Middle”) will star as Elena’s younger sister, Princess Isabel; and Chris Parnell (“Saturday Night Live,” “Archer”), Yvette Nicole Brown (“Community”) and Carlos Alazraqui (Disney Junior’s “Sheriff Callie’s Wild West”) voice Migs, Luna and Skylar respectively, magical flying creatures called Jaquins who support Elena as she learns how to rule her kingdom.
Also joining the cast are: Emiliano Díez (“George Lopez”) as Elena’s grandfather Francisco; Julia Vera (“General Hospital”) as her grandmother Luisa; Christian Lanz (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) as Elena’s uncle and Royal Advisor Duke Esteban; Jillian Rose Reed (“Awkward.”) as Elena’s best friend Naomi; Joseph Haro (“Awkward.”) as another of Elena’s close friends Mateo, a wizard-in-training; Jorge Diaz (“Days of our Lives”) as Elena’s friend and rising star of the Royal Guard Gabe; Keith Ferguson (Disney Junior’s “Sofia the First”) as Zuzo, a mysterious and wily spirit animal that acts as a link between the human and spirit worlds; and Joe Nunez (“Bridesmaids”) as Armando, a frazzled palace servant who helps Elena on her journey to the throne.
We can’t wait to welcome that lovable snowman into our homes and we are also very excited about the new series Elena of Avalor.
