Step aside, Avengers, we’ve got a new 13-year-old super-genius in town. Earlier today, during Marvel’s D23 Expo Panel, we got our first teaser trailer for the upcoming animated series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. The series is set to air first on the Disney Channel before making its way over to Disney Plus. Laurence Fishburne will be serving as the series executive producer.
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur follows Lunella Lafayette – genius, devoted daughter and loyal friend. And what does a super-intelligent, dedicated daughter and loyal friend do? She transports Devil Dinosaur into the present day. Who would have guessed having a giant red dinosaur would also bring on a slew of supervillains knocking on your door? Pure coincidence if you ask us. Now to save herself from having to move to New Jersey (which honestly, we think is a fantastic choice, tyvm), she needs to battle the villain to make her streets safe again.
The teaser trailer is exciting, action-packed and reminds us heavily of other animated Disney series, which is perfect. We can see where it can delve into more serious tones while remaining lighthearted and fun for younger audiences. Plus, Lunella Lafayette is, to put it simply, freaking awesome. We can’t wait to see her in action. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur stars Diamond White as Lunella, Alfre Woodard as Lunella’s grandmother Mimi and Libe Barer as Lunella’s best friend and manager Casey. We will also hear the voice talents of Sasheer Zamata, Jermaine Fowler and Gary Anthony Williams. Fishburne will also be voicing the recurring role of The Beyonder.
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur will debut on February 10, 2022. Check out the new teaser trailer below! Are you excited about this new animated series? Let us know in the comments below and on social media!
