  • I know the show hasn't started and their not going to focus on it, but since we have a discussion about sofia and shipping I thought to ask about her. Should she get one later eventually? Who could it be?

    • I think it should be prince alonso.

        Loading editor
    • I think it's Gabe. They seem to have playful dynamics, things that recent Disney couples have had. Gabe also would make sure Elena doesn't take costly risks, and Elena would help him become more carefree and embrace being open to learning. Mateo seems too young, and judging by him attending school with Naomi and being closer in age to her, they seem like a good pair. As Alonso's debut episode is called "Prince Too Charming," I have a bad feeling about him.

        Loading editor
    • I like the idea, Mateo is the same age as her, but seems more innocent then she is. Then again, chronologically, Elena is only 57 years old.

      Alonso seems like he's very arrogent from the trailer. Will she turn into a Sofia and try to reform him?

    • I think its Gabe because he always makes sure that she doesn't get hurt. In heat up when Elena was going to visit the rock monster, she only said for Gabe to come so she wouldn't be alone. And he give her a smile like a weird smile something like that.Also, in prince to chaming when prince Alonso was holding Elena hand, Gabe was jealous and he didn't like when Elena want with prince Alonso. At the end of the episode when Gabe told the coachman to take them to the port, Elena said to ignore that order and they both should deserve a little break and have fun and they both laugh together. I do like Mateo but hes not good couple with Elena because she always care for him like a brother. In the scepter of light when Elena only told Mateo to stay, she hold his hand and thank him for helping her and carrying her to the palace. She said that hes more than a royal wizard, hes a friend to her. But I think that Mateo and Naomi are a good couple because they both go to the same school and they age are close.

    • I believe it should be Gabe who becomes Elena's love interest. Elena and Mateo both see 1 another as more brother+sister-like friends; you know, a platonic relationship. as for Alonso, he's basically the Prince Hans of the Southern Isles to Elena's Princess Anna of Arendelle. the main reason I think Gabe should be the one who becomes Elena's love interest is because he's the guy in her life who likes as a heck of a lot more than just a friend. Gabe's practically in love with Elena.

    • Gabe has been hinted to like Elena as more than just a friend, but I think Elena might like Gabe as just a friend; and something new has come to my attention about Gabe liking Elena in such a way. even if Elena did like Gabe the same way he likes her, she might not even be capable of marrying him. isn't it within the law that only a prince can marry a princess? I'm not leaning towards Prince Alonso being Elena's love interest, if anyone thinks that. Prince Alonso was far too arrogant to be a real love interest for Elena. he reminded me far too much of Prince Hans from "Frozen".

      Well, Elena is also the Crown Princess--maybe she'll be able to wed down after her coronation. After all, the only one in her way is Esteban, who will lose a lot of power when Elena becomes queen.

      There probably isn't a law about her marrying a prince. Look at half of the disney princesses only three of them were royal pairs on both of their ends. And possibly two are on the nobility end. 

      Which brings me to say that reasoning is one reason why I don't ship Mateo and Elena. If he does end up with her, it means he's going to have to give up part of himself. Magic is really important to him and if he becomes a king, he's going to have to give that up to take on new responsibilites and duties that he might not be comfortable with. I'd like to keep Mateo like himself and not lose that magic and a part of him. If this show was set in a time where there weren't standards like this, I'd be a hardcore shipper. 

      Gabe, kind of makes more sense, now hear me out. He's not giving much up, he's just taking on more responsibility. He can already lead a guard, he'd just be adding more to what he is already doing. He hasn't been giving as much as a personality as Naomi or Mateo, which makes him more flexible to think about and what kind of person he is. Then if being a prince is an issue, he kind of has a noble status, due to a high rank in a position of authority. Having that role means that he could be very well prepared for it. 

      Both of them are a good choice for a love interest. If she must end up with someone end game, you've got to think about their futures.

      Makes sense--I think if Mateo's family wants to be part of Elena's, they'll need two kids--one for the consort post, one for the Sorcerer post.

      then again, in the Navidad episode, Gabe did help Elena out a lot. heck, in that episode, Gabe seemed to be the only 1 who was actually in the right!

    • Hey seeing that the Gabe/Elena shipping is in the minority, how many things do you supposed we can get fanoned? Less people means more ideas can be agreed in the majority.

    • I thought everyone was shipping Elena and Gabe. Well, obviously I was wrong but no matter, I'm used to shipping ships that most people don't like anyway.

      I'm all for Elena and Gabe. I ship them from the very first moment I saw Gabe (perhaps it's because I usually like royal guards), Mateo seems to be like a friend and a brother to Elena and I can't imagine him being more than that. If it's about Gabe not being smart, well perhaps he is, because logically he should be given his high rank. If it's about status, then I believe he can someday be knighted or do something to earn the title 'lord', to show the citizens and nobles that he's more worthy of Elena or something. I like that he's having a crush on her, although some people don't (maybe it's because I ship them together). And maybe his crush for her is obvious enough to everyone else in the show because I remember in The Scepter of Light when Mateo looked at Gabe when Elena asked to speak with him alone, and the Gabe smiled and nodded. I looked at my TV suspiciously at the time because it was like Mateo was silently asking if that's okay ... but it was probably just me imagining things since I really like these together.

      Prince Alenso (what was his name again?), on the other hand ... I can't believe I'm even considering him to be Elena's love interest, lol. I don't actually consider him similar to Prince Hans Westergard (because believe it or not, I like Hans).

      I agree with you because in " The Scepter of Light" when Elena told Mateo to stay for a minute, Gabe was surprised to hear that and Mateo look at Gabe to make should that if he was ok with it. Gabe smiled that him and nodded at him that it was ok for him to stay with her. I gust Mateo knows that Gabe likes Elena or something like that. Also, Gabe, in Olaball when Elena said that if its importaGabe, then it's important to her. Elena was the only one who supports Gabe when he was about to quick olaball. She trains him too, I mean Noami can support him or help him train support but she didn't. At the end of the episode of Olaball when Elena gives Gabe the trophy, he touch her hand and thank her for everything she did for him.

    • I was watching Harry Potter yesterday and I couldn't help but compare the trio of Harry, Hermione and Ron to the foursome of Elena, Naomi, Mateo and Gabe. What's interesting is that although there were love interests for the characters in HP it never took away from the friendship and overall story and journey. I'm hoping that EOA will be the same way. I think if the characters have love interests that they will still all remain the closest of friends and it won't interfere with what Elena needs to do on her journey of leadership!

      Also, Elena and Mateo have a very similar friendship as Harry and Hermione. They love, adore and admire each other SO much but it isn't anything romantic. AND their friendship is more in the spotlight than Harry and Ginny's and is much more imprtant to the overall story and I think that in EOA Elena and Mateo's friendship is THE most important relationship that Elena has in order to figure out what she needs to and that's something the creators really want to focus on. That boys and girls CAN be just friends! If Elena and Gabe have romantic feelings going on (which I very much think they do) that relationship is definitely going to take a backseat to the friendships and overall story.

      Just some of my thoughts for anyone who's a fan of both HP & Elena!

      I love all of this, I'm a huge Potterhead (it was my very first fandom). I hope the friendships stay very strong and remain throughout the story and more people cared about it. I'd love to talk more about both.

AND their friendship is more in the spotlight than Harry and Ginny's and is much more imprtant to the overall story and I think that in EOA Elena and Mateo's friendship is THE most important relationship that Elena has in order to figure out what she needs to and that's something the creators really want to focus on. That boys and girls CAN be just friends! If Elena and Gabe have romantic feelings going on (which I very much think they do) that relationship is definitely going to take a backseat to the friendships and overall story.

      Just some of my thoughts for anyone who's a fan of both HP & Elena!

      I love all of this, I'm a huge Potterhead (it was my very first fandom). I hope the friendships stay very strong and remain throughout the story and more people cared about it. I'd love to talk more about both. 

      I agree with that--I think the show is about how Elena, Gabe, Mateo, and Naomi grow to all rule Avalor together.

      I was watching Harry Potter yesterday and I couldn't help but compare the trio of Harry, Hermione and Ron to the foursome of Elena, Naomi, Mateo and Gabe. What's interesting is that although there were love interests for the characters in HP it never took away from the friendship and overall story and journey. I'm hoping that EOA will be the same way.

      Pretty much depending on how they rule and bounce off each other.

      I think its Gabe because he always makes sure that she doesn't get hurt. In heat up when Elena was going to visit the rock monster, she only said for Gabe to come so she wouldn't be alone. And he give her a smile like a weird smile something like that.Also, in prince to chaming when prince Alonso was holding Elena hand, Gabe was jealous and he didn't like when Elena want with prince Alonso. At the end of the episode when Gabe told the coachman to take them to the port, Elena said to ignore that order and they both should deserve a little break and have fun and they both laugh together. I do like Mateo but hes not good couple with Elena because she always care for him like a brother. In the scepter of light when Elena only told Mateo to stay, she hold his hand and thank him for helping her and carrying her to the palace. She said that hes more than a royal wizard, hes a friend to her. But I think that Mateo and Naomi are a good couple because they both go to the same school and they age are close.
      Agreed. 

      I completely agree! Gabe was very worried about Elena in both episodes. the worries he had about her safety towards Charoca may have been a little not-as-valid-as-they-appeared, but those same worries about her towards Prince Not-Very-Charming-At-All were right on the money. Charoca was just getting constantly irratated at the village children for taking his things! Prince Alonso was an actual danger not just to Elena, but also to his own kingdom of Cordoba. I mean, he deliberately ignored the threat of the Yacalli, even when his own soldier informed the 3 of them that the Yacallli had not only awoken and turned out to be real after all, but had also destroyed the building equipment for the bridge. the reason I say the 3 of them is because Gabe had followed Princess Elena like always.

      First off, that's nice with your friend- wish I had that.

      There is going to be that wedge there: duties as a husband, a father eventually, a king, and then a wizard. Something is going to give and that's likely going to be magic on his own Accor. He can't pass off all of his duties to other people, that makes him look bad and negative vibes. Then someone else is going to take over as a wizard having all of the fun instead of him. Even consorts have duties and responsibilities. Mateo wants to be a wizard and a great one like his grandfather, that is going to be stalled. And then is being a ruler his thing? Does he want to be in charge of people? Tell them what to do? Help make major decisions? Lead an army? There's a lot that goes into this, that attempted a fan fic on lol.

      Sorry for the grammar/spelling mistakes I'm on my phone.

      ha-ha! check it out! absolutely no one voted for Prince Alonso to be her love interest! even Naomi got more votes for this, and her being Elena's love interest would make the crown princess gay! and in all honesty, the only princesses I can actually see being homos are Merida of "Brave" and Queen Elsa of Arendelle from "Frozen"! 

      I voted for Gabe, by the way!

    • Elena's love interest is Gabe. Even if they never do anything with it, it's pretty clear that it's Gabe. There will not be anyone else. Why do I think this? Well mostly because it's already been confirmed that Gabe has a crush on Elena and since this is a Disney Junior / Channel show that does NOT want to focus on Elena's love life, it is pretty unlikely that they are going to break poor Gabe's heart by having Elena fall in love with anyone but him. There is just no place in the show for an episode that would deal with that sort of thing. Also, I think it's pretty clear that Elena also has feelings for Gabe and I think it gets more and more clear as the show goes on. Which is cute cause you can see the progression of her sizing him up in the first few episodes, to him gaining her trust, to a very close friendship, to them just giving each other goo goo eyes all the time.


      Here's something I wrote a few months ago in a response on my message wall reguarding Elena and Gabe: I love their dynamic. I think that they are probably going to be the best Disney couple ever because you get to see them fall in love in a very real way. Not just a love at first sight now we get married kind of thing like in Disney movies. And despite what some people say, It's already happening. They are slowly and subtly growing closer and and closer and it's adorable to watch. Everyone always talks about how Gabe looks at Elena but Elena looks at Gabe in the same way and as the episodes go on it's more and more obvious. Plus I love that Gabe loves and adores Elena no matter what. He isn't going to get in the way of her being a leader, he's going to stand by her and follow her and I think it's great to show a strong manly type guy completely admire a strong woman and not be intimidated by her. They are great role models for girls AND boys.

      I think that the writers of the show are doing it right! Their story is about Elena becoming a leader but being a leader and a strong woman doesn't mean that you can't fall in love too. Love is just taking a back seat to Elena's goals and a guy like Gabe (who, like Elena, also takes his job seriously) will understand that and knows that Elena is worth waiting for.

      I could probably go on and on about these two! But that's the gist of it I guess!

      heck, nearly every source imaginable on the subject had confirmed it to be the truth! so, I don't know why all the nay-sayers of the relationship known as Gabelena are so insistent that Gabe is married to his job as the royal guard lieutenant.

    • Well even there won't be romance, I'd love to see the Jaquins making new friendship with characters older than Sofia since that would give them more choices of what to do for fun. I've even made my own discussion questions and answers page to share what sort characters I'd let them meet and I'm thinking Lilo would be one of the addiltional friends not yet on the list. Oh My They're So Fun To Follow Or Ride On Who Shall The Jaquin Meet, that's the page I created using imagination.


      Lilo and Stitch being one of the new friends for the Jaquins to meet isn't only since both girl play guitair and live near a stream, it's also because I'd like to try to do something that would interest the admin Graywolf2 who clearly mentions Lilo and Stitch as favorites.

      In the Essential Guide it states that Gabe has a crush on her since the day they met. There might be some story line with him and Elena as a love interest, but highly not likely. This show mostly focuses on Elena becoming of age in order to be the Queen of Avalor.

      Have to agree there, it doesn't seem very lucky that they would touch on it in the show. I think it's a good thing that they won't touch on it personally. Although, I'm guessing you voted on Gabe too?

    • I actually disagree with you guys! I think that since it's in the essential guide that they WILL eventually mention it. Otherwise, what's the point? I mean, I agree with the premise of the show being her becoming a leader and learning how to rule and that her family comes first. They're definitely doing it right but i would be very! disappointed if they didn't EVER give her a love interest. Im not asking for it to be a big thing, i actually wouldnt want that cause like Craig has said, its not about that.

      family love and love between friends is the greatest and should be priority, BUT romantic love is one of the most beautiful aspects of life. They touch on all sorts of relationships between all the characters, there's no reason it too cant have a SMALL place in the show.  I think it's important to teach young girls that they can be strong, leaders and powerful in this world without having to sacrifice being in love. It's also equally important to show young boys that they don't need some damsel in distress. They need to see strong men loving strong women rather than being intimidated by them or being pushed aside by them. I would NEVER teach my daughter that romantic love is silly, nonsense, something to be pushed aside or something that is a waste of time. and I would never want my son to see a strong woman that he admires and walk away from love because he thinks she doesn't have time for him. And of course Elena doesn't "need" a man but that's not what love is anyways. True love doesn't make you weaker or silly, it lifts you up and makes you even stronger. Seriously important for kids to see if you want them to develop healthy relationships, which eventually no matter how much you take it out of tv and movies, they WILL develop relationships. With Elena being my daughter's idol, I would like to see Elena find someone who is her equal, supports her goals and makes her even stronger!

    • That is true, why bring it up if it's never going to be mentioned? Maybe we will but I'm hoping it's not for Elena to turn him down. That would just be disappointing and one reason why I'd hate for it to be mentioned at all. It doesn't need to be a huge thing or some kind of filler episode.

      If there is one thing I love about the tangled series it's that they show it's okay to have a love interest. Rapunzel and Eugene are in a very loving relationship and they don't have to change each other and she's still a strong female lead. I'd love it if they show that with Elena eventually.

    • I don't think they're going to give her a love interest at all. I love it when characters have love interests, but I guess Disney probably thinks, "If Moana didn't have one, why should Elena?"

      When Frozen came out, there was an article which read (rather obnoxiously, in my opinion), "Frozen teaches Girls that they don't need Prince Charming." I think because of this, Disney is trying to avoid giving characters Love interests and instead make them "empowering".

      (Ironic that they'd do this, when clearly Elsa wore a sparkly dress that didn't even show her ankles, and that tons of little girls are wearing copies of the dress).

      Don't take this the wrong way. I'm all for empowered female characters, but when Disney does them, at least nowadays, they just hammer it in, like they're saying, "Look, this princess is fighting the bad guy herself! Look, this princess doesn't need a man! Get it? GET IT?!"

      Also, they try to make female characters "sassy". By "sassy", I mean they have characters sass talk and crack one-liners. I don't think sass-talk is as entertaining as people think it is. I think it's rude and obnoxious (Watch and episode of any Disney Channel show and you'll know what I'm talking about).

      I remember seeing that article and it just made me mad too. I don't get it either, because even though I don't mind characters getting one I wonder what is wrong with the idea of a princess getting a love interest anyway. I'm all for it too but Disney is doing it all wrong I think. I said in a rant before but I mean seriously what is wrong with the idea of a princess having a crush or a boyfriend? There is nothing wrong with that. She’s not automatically going to become some kind of damsel or change herself for a boy. I don't know why there's this whole argument why it's bad to have a man around.

      I'm glad someone agrees with me, here. And also, you mentioned the prospect of a girl becoming a damsel or changing herself for a boy. Ariel, for instance, didn't just become human for Eric. Even before she met him, she decided she wanted to be a human. And even if it was because she wanted Eric, it would seem like the logical way to go. I mean, did they even say how merpeople do it (You know, intimately)?

      Me too, I don't know why it's a big deal myself either. Yea Ariel is just an example of how progressive the disney princesses have become. I feel as if people don't watch the movie and just blame the princesses without thinking of it. 

      When it comes down to it. I don't mind if Elena has a love interest. Clearly that's not her goal and likely won't happen in the show. If his crush ever comes out in the show I hope it's not just for her to break his heart. If anything I see it as a good opportunity if it happens, from a writing and character development perspective. That just be a step in a good direction? Showing relationships in a healthy manner and that a boy doesn't define a girl? I just don't understand why if she does get one and it's seen as the worst possible thing ever.

      (Ironic that they'd do this, when clearly Elsa wore a sparkly dress that didn't even show her ankles, and that tons of little girls are wearing copies of the dress).

      Don't take this the wrong way. I'm all for empowered female characters, but when Disney does them, at least nowadays, they just hammer it in, like they're saying, "Look, this princess is fighting the bad guy herself! Look, this princess doesn't need a man! Get it? GET IT?!"

      Also, they try to make female characters "sassy". By "sassy", I mean they have characters sass talk and crack one-liners. I don't think sass-talk is as entertaining as people think it is. I think it's rude and obnoxious (Watch and episode of any Disney Channel show and you'll know what I'm talking about).

      I think most of us know that she is not gettting a love interest, I just made it because there was a whole thread talking about Sofia getting one for some reason. So I just thought of it. 

      I remember seeing that article and it just made me mad too. I don't get it either, because even though I don't mind characters getting one I wonder what is wrong with the idea of a princess getting a love interest anyway. I'm all for it too but Disney is doing it all wrong I think. I said in a rant before but I mean seriously what is wrong with the idea of a princess having a crush or a boyfriend? There is nothing wrong with that. She’s not automatically going to become some kind of damsel or change herself for a boy. I don't know why there's this whole argument why it's bad to have a man around. 

      I'm glad someone agrees with me, here. And also, you mentioned the prospect of a girl becoming a damsel or changing herself for a boy. Ariel, for instance, didn't just become human for Eric. Even before she met him, she decided she wanted to be a human. And even if it was because she wanted Eric, it would seem like the logical way to go. I mean, did they even say how merpeople do it (You know, intimately)?
      Me too, I don't know why it's a big deal myself either. Yea Ariel is just an example of how progressive the disney princesses have become. I feel as if people don't watch the movie and just blame the princesses without thinking of it. 

      When it comes down to it. I don't mind if Elena has a love interest. Clearly that's not her goal and likely won't happen in the show. If his crush ever comes out in the show I hope it's not just for her to break his heart. If anything I see it as a good opportunity if it happens, from a writing and character development perspective. That just be a step in a good direction? Showing relationships in a healthy manner and that a boy doesn't define a girl? I just don't understand why if she does get one and it's seen as the worst possible thing ever.  

      I think Elena should feel lucky that a guy like Gabe is crushing on her!

    • Of course, no romance is fine, not every female character needs to have a love interest, but I personally ship Mateo and Elena. They have the most episodes together, and they have the closest relationship out of all her friends. Mateo is also the most plot important of Gabe, himself, and Naomi. Mateo is the royal wizard, he understands Elena's magic better than any other character, he has a connection to Zuzo, and he was also in the movie. He's also in many other episodes that aren't even about him, such as Island of Youth, Jewel of Maru, Curse of El Guapo, etc.

      Another reason I would prefer Elena with Mateo, over Gabe (don't get me wrong, I love Gabe), is because a Mateo/Elena relationship would be so much more interesting and unique. It would be amazing to have the main heroine have a romance, not with the macho, stereotypically masculine, captain of the guards, but with the shy, svelte, sensitive and kind, wizard, who uses magic and his wit as opposed to his brute strength.

      I also find Mateo to be hilarious, with his snark and sass, and he's my favorite character, but this is just my personal opinion. But I honestly feel Elena/Mateo would be the actual best choice for a romance in the show. Sorry Gabelena and Elenaomi shippers.

    • ^ Each to their own :-) I've given my stance on that pair, personally I see Mateo and Elena could be stereotypical and maybe Gabelena is too. Mateo is fun though, I wouldn’t have given him a girl if I didn’t lol. (Also sorry on my phone earlier and just got around to editing). I don’t hate the ship, it’s like my third favorite but I do like them better as friends. He’s her hermione to Elena’s harry. I hope people do enjoy the three mains just as much as I do.

    • Clement1827, I very much agree with you about Mateo being a more prominent character in the show. He is definitely more important in the overall story when compared with Naomi and Gabe and YES he and Elena have an undeniable bond over their magic and they are an amazing team and it's fun to watch them grow and learn together. But all those reasons are exactly why he isn't going to be her love interest and their bond is not a romantic one. Craig Gerber and the team have mentioned more than once they want to show m/f friendship without romantic love and so they won't be likely to make the main pair fall in love.

      Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to hate on the ship. I too love Mateo! He cracks me up and is just the cutiest, I get why people love him so much and would want him to be with the heroine. I'm just saying realistically, don't get your hopes up. Fanfiction stories of Elena/Mateo are great and there is some FANTASTIC fanart for them so go ahead and ship away lol

      I just hope the shippers don't lose sight of the beautiful friendship that Mateo and Elena have in the actual show by trying to make their connection more than what it is.

    • And in defense of Gabe.... a lot of people have called him a stereotype when in actuality he is BEING stereotyped as something he is not just because he is the handsome guard. Gabe is by no means "Macho" ... Strong? yes. Macho? no. Macho has more to do with personality and Gabe's personality is nothing like some fans have characterized him. He is not a macho meathead dopey muscle type guy. He is actually just as sensitive as Mateo and probably more so. He is the all around nice guy who although makes some mistakes (all the characters do btw) just wants to do good. He works hard and earns his place and although he yes uses his strength and is there to "protect" Elena, he usually lets her do her thing and he just hangs back and follows her lead. He supports her more than he tries to "protect" her and does so more and more as the show goes on. Plus, his strength and muscles aren't what Elena responds to. She ignores all that and she shows admiration towards him when he does something sweet or noble or admits when he messed up or when he simply listens to her and supports her. Either way, I don't think any of the characters are stereotypes. It's up to us to not stereotype them based on what they look like :-)

      Thank you for that defense! I think he's a smart character and could actually be a little more sensitive as you thought (he was crying when Naomi was thinking she was leaving) so yes. No characters are going to be perfect of course. It's up to everyone else to not stereotpye each other.

    • Yes! His "something in my eye" line lol. And He showed how sensitive and open he is with his feelings in Olaball when talking about his father (also big strong guy being bad at the sport?) and then in Curse of El Guapo how hurt he was when the other guards bullied him. He also shows that he's sensitive to others. In Navidad he was the first to run after Isabel when she went off crying and he was there for Elena when she felt like everything was ruined and in Prince too Charming he was such a softy with Pedro the old slow horse and he "aww"d at the buhitos and he's totally a sweety big brother type to Isa and lets not forget his little fear of lizards! haha! Nothing about Gabe is "macho" or stereotypical of the strong guard type guy.

      Aw yes the something in my eye line lol. I think that was very sweet. I like how open he was with Elena when it came to confessing what was going on in Olaball (very true seems like its a good thing). He's not very macho as you think indeed. He kind of reminds me of a puppy actually warm, loyal, open, and friendly :-)

    • Elena of Avalor,s series will not have so much love interest of Mateo and Gabe towards Elena, Elena also sees Mateo and Gabe just as her friends, Princess Elena is not interested in falling in love, Elena is how Merida and how Elsa does not they need a man to protect themselves, they can defend themselves, the same actress who gives the voice to Elena the actress Aimee Carrero, asked her what if Elena was to have an interest in love for Mateo or for Gabe or for a Prince or for a King when Elena is a Queen but the actress said not what the Elena of Ávalor series is not going to have a loving interest, the actress said that Princess Elena is a Princess how Merida and how Elsa have no love interest for some man, in addition the producer of series of Elena which is the same of series of Princess Sofía said that the series of Elena of Ávalor, is not going to have any loving interest is to say that the plot of the series will be equal to the plot of the Princess Sofía. In addtion Elena of Ávalor is given by Disney Junior and they can not do loving interest because that program is for girls and boys.

    • I see Matteo as a good match for her, and Gabe for Naomi, if we're going by who would make a nice couple.

      That said, she should either marry a foreign prince for an alliance, or her cousin Estoban to consolidate family power. If Estoban marries someone else and has kids, it could eventually lead to inheritance disputes down the line and Avolar could explode in a whole War of the Roses drama. I assume Estoban is a royal cousin, as he doesn't refer to her grandparents as his grandparents. If her living grandparents were the royal ones, they'd be on the throne.

      Given that Estoban is now older than her, he is a threat to her sovereignty and if he wanted to revolt he would likely find allies. Marrying him would neutralize the threat as his children would be her children and they would both want to see them on the throne after her,

      Personally I don’t get the whole Naomi/gabe but it is what is is. That being said though Esteban is not royal. His grandparents are luisa and Francisco too and they're just nobility. So he has no claim to the throne at all. So if he married and had a kid, that child wouldn’t be in line for a throne.

    • I'm going with no. Sure, romance can make things better, and it could potentially work out here, but the show is not about that. The fact that the bonds of the characters can be enhanced without the need for romance is good in my book. Besides, the emotional moments that Elena has with Gabe, Mateo, and Naomi are the same tone wise in that they're equally heartfelt. I mean, Elena encouraging Gabe to play his own way in "Olaball" is similar to her trying to boost Mateo's confidence in "Wizard In Training", which is also similar to her trying to make Naomi feel better in "A Spy In The Palace". Put simply, she has equally emotional moments with all of her friends due to seeing the good in them.

    • For some reason, I really like the look of Mateo and Elena together. I think visually, with the colors of their clothes, it seems like they were paired for each other. However, yeah I have to agree with the majority, personality-wise Gabe makes more sense. They have a great rapport.
