BREAKING: Disney’s Princess Sofía is not Latina; Just a Regular non-Latina Fake Princess

Ay, caramba!

I just got word from Alex Nogales over at the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) and this is what he had to say about the whole Disney Latin Princess Non-News News:

“Yesterday we met with Nancy Kanter, Senior Vice President, Original Programming & General Manager, Disney Junior Worldwide, to discuss Disney Junior’s “Sofia the First.” She shared that “Sofia the First” is in fact not a Latina character and that the producer of the television program misspoke. We accept the clarification and celebrate the good news that Disney Junior has an exciting project in early development that does have a Latina as the heroine of the show. NHMC has agreed to share its writers alumni list from the prestigious NHMC/NLMC writers program in an effort to help create authentic, three-dimensional Latino characters. We appreciate Disney/ABC’s commitment to diversity and look forward to seeing more Latino lead characters as the stars of their shows.”

As Dra. Polo would say: Case is Closed!
