There’s a new princess in town! Actress Jamie-Lynn Sigler (who you probably remember from The Sopranos fame) recently tweeted that she’ll voice the first Jewish Disney princess in Elena of Avalor’s third season.
In a tweet early this week Sigler wrote, “I am so excited to voice Disney’s first Jewish princess.” While Sigler didn’t give much more info, the actress’s character will reportedly make her grand debut in a Hanukkah-themed episode.
The still-yet-unnamed princess will visit from a “Latino Jewish kingdom” and is already getting plenty of praise via social media.
One Twitter user wrote, “This representation is so powerful, because I honestly have never seen a Latinx Jewish person represented on anything…ever” and another tweeted, “It’s about time!!! Mazel Tov!!”
As of now, there’s no release date for Sigler’s debut, but the third season of Elena of Avalor does launch on the Disney Channel and Disney Now on Oct. 7.
