At the red carpet, Carrero said about the role, “There like a few little girls dressed in Elena costumes that will never get old for me.” It was also her birthday and they celebrated around an Elena cake. Phillips said, “Elena is a very positive role model.” Trejo also spoke about voicing the character, “For me, it’s so much fun because I’m so used to playing other characters that they can’t watch.” Brown said, “This means so much to me because this is the first Latina Disney princess. I remember when Princess and the Frog came out and it was the first African American princess I know what that meant to my community so I can only imagine what it will mean to the Latina girls so I’m so excited to be a part of it.” Here’s the press release:
