Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) will voice the yet to be named princess in a Hanukkah-themed episode of the hit series Elena of Avalor. The Hanukkah-themed episode will see Elena visits a Latinx Jewish kingdom. Writer Rachel Ruderman provided a little more context about the princess’s debut. “A little over a year ago, I had the honor of writing an Elena of Avalor episode featuring Disney’s first Jewish princess. Jamie Lynn Sigler knocks the role out of the park (wait ’till you hear her song!),” Rachel tweeted.
The excited actress confirmed the big news on Twitter. “I am so excited to voice Disney’s first Jewish princess,” she shared with her followers.
She’ll be the first Jewish princess Disney has introduced in its 82-year history of the royal characters, which began with Snow White back in 1937.
