Following the summer debut of Disney’s first Latina princess in the all-new animated Disney Channel series Elena of Avalor, the character will be featured at Walt Disney World Resort’s Magic Kingdom in August and at Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure in the fall.

Produced by Disney Television Animation and targeting two to sevens, the series follows the adventures of funny and brave 16-year-old Princess Elena (voiced by Aimee Carrero) as she learns resilience and compassion after saving her kingdom from an evil sorceress.

The series is set to air in 33 languages across 163 countries on Disney Channels worldwide. Craig Gerber (Sofia the First) is executive producing with Silvia Cardenas Olivas (Moesha, The Brothers Garcia) as story editor and Elliot Bour (The Little Engine That Could) as supervising director.

Meanwhile, following the summer premiere of the 100th Disney Channel Original Movie (DCOM)—a reimagined version of the classic 1980s film Adventures in Babysitting—a special programming event will run from May 27 featuring a four-day marathon of the 51 most popular DCOMs.

Sponsored by Great Wolf Lodge and Moose Toys’ Shopkins, the event will also feature encore presentations through June across Disney Channel, the Disney Channel app and VOD of every DCOM ever made.

Among the list of most popular DCOMs are Disney’s first original movie Under Wraps, 2007′s record-breaking High School Musical 2 and last year’s phenomenon Descendants.

iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and Google Play will also make all 100 movies available for digital purchase throughout the summer.
