The prime time television movie event "Elena of Avalor: Song of the Sirenas," based on the Emmy(R) and Imagen Award-winning series featuring Disney's first princess inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore, will debut on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 (7:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Junior and the DisneyNOW app. The all-star guest voice cast for the special includes Gina Rodriguez, Edward James Olmos, Rita Moreno, Prince Royce and Rosario Dawson as sirenas, mysterious underwater creatures.

In the special, Elena travels to Nueva Vista, a place that she used to visit when she was a child, and reconnects with her cousin Duke Cristóbal, who has been keeping watch over the city. While there, she encounters a group of mermaid-like sea creatures called sirenas and learns about their complicated history with humans. In an attempt to make amends, Elena befriends the sirenas and enlists their help to defeat evil sorceress Shuriki.

Rodriguez and Royce guest star as twin sirenas, Princess Marisa and Prince Marzel. Olmos and Moreno voice their parents, King Pescoro and Queen Camila. Dawson voices the role of sirena royal guard, Daria. Jane Fonda recurs as Shuriki.

Following the premiere of the television movie, Disney Junior will debut a series of shorts titled "Elena of Avalor: The Secret Life of Sirenas" which delves deeper into the everyday lives of the sirenas. Additional extensions themed to the sirenas storyline include a storybook based on the television movie, which Disney Publishing released earlier this summer, as well as toys, dolls and role-play items from key licensees which will hit shelves on August 1.
