❤️ The Very First Latina Disney Princess Might Be Coming To The Big Screen — And This Megastar Could Have A Role In Its Creation

If you’re the kind of gal who grew up admiring Disney Princesses like Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas and Belle, and in your adult years have put your little loved ones onto Moana and Tiana, rejoice, because our very own Latina Princess might soon be accompanying our fave cartoon royalty on the big screen.

Last March, Disney Animated Studios announced four films coming out in the next four years, including “Frozen 2.” There haven’t been any clues on the additional three films, until now.

According to Page Six, one of the films could center on a Latina princess, and Lin-Manuel Miranda might have a role in creating the star.

“He is talking to Disney about a sequel to Moana, but the movie would be about a Latina princess,” Luis Miranda, the Hamilton creator’s dad, told Page Six.

Disney reps didn’t get back to the outlet with more deets, particularly clarifying if the princess will make her appearance in a Moana sequel or if Miranda would be working with the studio for a second time by co-writing the first Latina Princess film.

Miranda has collaborated with the animation studio in the past, working on Moana and composing the music for the film.

While the Latinx community welcomed its very first Disney Princess in 2016, by way of the courageous Elena of Avalor, we have yet to have Latina royalty on the big screen, and girls of color around the country are ecstatic about the prospect.

Since Miranda is allegedly currently only in talks with Disney, it’s doubtful we’ll get a glimpse of the new princess anytime soon — but, really, can we just get a confirmation? We’re ready to celebrate with a marathon of all our fave Disney Princess movies.

What Disney Character Are You Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Who are we kidding: Disney movies were basically our entire childhood. And to be completely honest, they’re still a part of being an adult, too. It’s a well-known fact that anyone who tells you they’re not looking forward to the latest Disney movie release is probably lying.

And, anyone who says they’re not curious about what Disney character they would be according to their star sign is probably also lying. Find your zodiac sign in the list below, and see who is your Disney counterpart, and what your fairytale romance would be like …

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Disney

Aries, your bold attitude makes you the perfect Princess Jasmine. Your strong will and dependable work ethic means that you’re not the type to give up, even in the face of living as a street rat. Since you’ve got a lot of energy to burn off, you’re definitely the best person to face off against the deviousness of Jafar.

Disney

Romancing you is pretty tricky, which is a good thing. You deserve respect and  to be doted on. Nothing would stop your ambition from taking you to the Cave of Wonders!

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Disney

With your determined attitude, Taurus, you are definitely Jane. You have the fortitude to see yourself learn to tree-surf like a pro, and fight off would-be poachers. Your stamina is unparalleled, and you have a generous personality.

Disney

Your lovers are lucky, since they know you have a real appreciation for beauty – and you wouldn’t be with them if you didn’t think they were gorgeous! However, you can have trouble communicating your feelings, so they do have to be patient with you.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Instagram: @vario_colores__j

Gemini, your versatility is what defines you as Mulan. New situations don’t scare you, since you’re good at thinking on your feet. Your smarts are why people want you around when they’re caught in a sticky situation. Remember: you’re as swift as the coursing river, with all the force of a great typhoon, you have the strength of a raging fire, and you’re as mysterious as the dark side of the moon.

Instagram: @cosmo_con

Your ideal partner would have to understand that you can’t just sit at home and play the homemaker. That would be boring. You would rather spend your time crossdressing, saving the country from violent invaders, and making your family proud.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Instagram: @theeverafterpurplewall

Snow White is your Disney counterpart, Cancer. You have such a large heart, and you care for the people around you. We know – it can be a bit overwhelming at times. You crave stability in your home life, so that you can feel secure, safe and comfortable. Just make sure your housemates don’t take your kindness for granted!

Instagram: @imperodisney

Someday your prince will come, and they’ll be understanding of your absent father and evil stepmother issues. Beware, though, since they might have a chronic habit of disturbing your sleep.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Disney

Leo, your sign is the queen of the jungle, so who could you be, but Nala? You’re a good, strong leader, which is just as well when everything the light touches is your kingdom. Leo, you have a great sense of judgment, which is why you can easily make friends with the likes of meerkats and warthogs. Hakuna matata, right?

Disney

Your loved one must be comfortable with your penchant for drama. While it seems to centre on you, you’d swear it’s not always your fault. It’s not like you can help that your uncle’s the jealous, murderous type.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Instagram: @queenelsa1995

With your ability to keep your emotions reigned in, Virgo, you are the quintessential Elsa. Rather than risk making yourself vulnerable, you try to focus your attention on what you’re doing rather than on who you are as a person. You can sometimes be overly self-critical, because you always demand the best from yourself. But, you need to learn to let it go.

Instagram: @disneyfans_1

Virgo, your ideal partner is someone who can accept you for who you are, and will love you unconditionally. And hopefully they can teach you how to love yourself, too.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Instagram: @mmdisney200

Libra, you find yourself in Pocahontas. You have a great capacity for charming others into cooperation, but you’re not the best at dealing with confrontation. In fact, you have a fear of other people getting hurt, and this can keep you from reaching your goals.

Instagram: @magie_hodge

You can be your best self with someone who understands your passion for justice and equality. Since you have the ability to see beauty in lots of things, your loved one must be able to appreciate the colours of the wind.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Instagram: @polynesia_love

With your entrepreneurial attitude, Scorpio, you have an innate ability to overcome massive obstacles, just like your Disney counterpart, Moana. You’re not satisfied with spending forever on a tiny island. You’d rather a bigger, bolder lifestyle, exploring the world.

Instagram: @cinemartistry

Finding that special someone for you means finding a person who can keep up with you in a heated debate. You can’t help it if you feel passionate about something! In fact, more often than you bring that same passion into the bedroom with you.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Instagram: @haleyraecannell

Sagittarius, have you ever considered how much you have in common with Rapunzel? You have a real desire for freedom, but you also like the idea of having a place, or kingdom, to call home. Your ability to adapt in hairy situations means you’ll get your happy ending, eventually.

Instagram: @disneysbook

True love for you is being with a Flynn Rider who accepts you and your passion for travel. And, who won’t mind if you do wildly spontaneous things, like cutting all of your hair off at the drop of a hat.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Instagram: @dolce_lavanda84

Remember Lilo and Stitch, Capricorn? Well, you’re definitely the Lilo in this equation. You make a great companion, and life-long friend, which is just as well if your number one amigo is an alien. Watch out for the Nani in your life, since you need someone to provide rules and structure for you to function well.

Instagram: @tkme4ard

Your soulmate is someone who understands that your stoicism makes you pretty closed-mouthed when it comes to talking about your emotions. 

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Instagram: @labellaylabestialatino

Aquarius, with your unorthodox, unconventional soul, you are certainly Belle. People know you for always having your nose in a book. And, since you are well-read, it makes you a pretty intelligent person. You tend to make friends with an eclectic bunch – yes, being friends with household belongings is a little strange. 

Instagram: @serenaserenenji

You’re not worried about the way someone looks when you’re in a relationship, Aquarius. You’d rather know that they have a good heart, and care about humanitarian issues like you do.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Instagram: @razinger_z_

Pisces, let’s face it: you’re Ariel. You’re a real fish out of water. You can be shy at the best of times, which makes you adept at imitating the mannerisms of other people while you hide your true personality … or mermaid heritage. 

Instagram: @fallenangel16.6

Your Prince Eric knows that you make a devoted lover and friend, and that you’re selfless to a fault. With your deeply emotional nature, you make a sensitive soul to be around.
