The casting information can be a historic second, as Zegler, who’s Colombian-American, would be the newest Disney princess of colour. The primary Latina Disney princess was Elena on the animated sequence Elena of Avalor, and most not too long ago, Halle Bailey was forged as Ariel within the live-action model of The Little Mermaid, which is at the moment filming in Italy. We actually cannot wait to see Zegler within the function (and discover out who will play the prince and the Evil Queen!).
