The folks at Disney Channel have given us a sneak peek at the opening credits to Craig McCracken’s much-anticipated new series Wander Over Yonder, which will premiere on Friday, August 16 at 9 p.m., following the premieres of Phineas and Ferb: Mission Marvel (at 8 p.m.). The song was written and performed by contemporary folk duo Two Man Gentleman; band member Andy Bean is the composer for the series. By the way, the opener actually features 62 different backgrounds during its 41-second run!
The toon features the voice talents of Jack McBrayer (30 Rock, Wreck-It Ralph, Phineas and Ferb) as free-spirited Wander, April Winchell as Wander’s true-blue stallion and best friend Sylvia, Tom Kenny as Commander Peepers, the leader of the Watchdog Army, and Keith Ferguson as evil villain Lord Hater. Series guest stars include James Marsden, Aziz Ansari and Edie McClurg.
Wander Over Yonder is executive produced by series creator Craig McCracken. Lauren Faust (Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic) is co-producer and story editor. The show will begin its official run on Friday, Sept. 13 at 9 p.m. on Disney Channel.
