Ask anyone to rattle off the names of Latinx Disney characters and you might find them thinking hard and stammering. While we're by no means totally there when it comes to Latinx representation from Disney and beyond, Latinx have actually appeared in more than a handful of Disney's movies and TV shows (and we're not counting those who were not actually portrayed by Latinx, like Lizzie McGuire's Miranda Sanchez, played by a Filipina, or High School Musical's Gabriella Montez).
