They’re cute and all, but we’ve been waiting for a Latina princess foreveeerrr.

Finally, we’ll have a Latina princess represented on TV and at a couple of Disney’s theme parks!

La princesa’s show “Elena of Avalor” will premier on the Disney Channel this summer. Elena, who is voiced by Dominican actress Aimee Carrero, will fight to defend her kingdom from evil. Sounds pretty badass, right?

You’ll be able to snap selfies with this princess in her new home at the Florida Disney parks in August, and at California Adventures in the fall.

As for what inspired Elena, Disney says she’ll be the “first princess inspired by diverse Latin cultures.”

Thanks, Disney! That only took about half of century!

After Practicing For A 5K, This 12-Year-Old Murdered A Half Marathon

What do you do when you realize your 5k race has gone well over 3.1 miles?

You keep going.

That’s what 12-year-old LeeAdianez Rodriguez did when she accidentally joined a group of half marathoners instead of her 5k running group at the Rochester Regional Health Flower City Challenge in New York.

At mile 4, she asked a woman who was running next to her how much was left. Being the fierce young lady that she is, she decided to run the 10 extra miles. Yes, 10! She figured it wouldn’t hurt since she has already surpassed the 5K (3.1 miles).

“I knew after a while that I was in the half marathon and I was like I’m going finish this, I’m going to keep going,” she told NBC New York.

Understandably so LeeAddianez’s mother, Brendalee Espada, worried after she didn’t see her daughter at the 5k finish line. Imagining the worst, she searched for her for two hours.

When a cop finally found the young girl running the half, she didn’t hesitate to say she was going to keep going.

“I don’t know how to explain it, it was like time froze,” LeeAdianez said. “I felt like I was on top of the world.”

She finished the 13.1 mile race at 2:42:31.
