Disney’s newest princess comes to DVD with the release of Elena of Avalor: Ready to Rule just in time for the Holidays! Includes four full episodes and a FREE exclusive projecting scepter which makes a great holiday gift for little princesses.
Set in the enchanted fairytale land of Avalor, “Elena of Avalor” tells the story of Elena, a brave and adventurous teenager who has saved her kingdom from an evil sorceress and must now learn to rule as crown princess until she is old enough to be queen.

Elena of Avalor is a super cute show and my 5 year old daughter became an instant fan. Lil Sis goes around the house singing the songs and playing with her own pretend “scepter.” I highly suggest watching episode 1 to get the backstory to this new princess. She is strong and a great role model to little girls everywhere.
