We are excited to bring the poor, unfortunate souls who weren’t able to cram into Disney XD’s Wander Over Yonder panel at Comic-Con International today this first look at the upcoming season two. Presented at the panel, which was moderated by series composer Andy Bean and featured Craig McCracken and stars Jack McBrayer, April Winchell, Tom Kenny and Fred Tatasciore, the season two Sizzle Reel offers a first glimpse at Jon Hamm and Noel Well’s characters joining the cast.
The second season of the Annie-winning animated comedy will debut Monday, August 3 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD. In their new adventures, Wander and his quick-tempered steed Sylvia will encounter a new villain, Lord Dominator — a formidable rival who threatens Lord Hater’s existence as the Greatest in the Galaxy. The half-hour season premiere “The Greater Hater” marks Dominator’s arrival, which turns Wander’s optimistic worldview upside down. This will be the first of a four-part story arc, which includes a musical episode written by composer Andy Bean.
In addition to Mad Men star Jon Hamm and SNL’s Noel Wells, other notable guest stars this season include “Weird Al” Yankovic, June Squibb (Nebraska), Sabrina Carpenter (Girl Meets World), Rob Riggle (Modern Family), Ken Marino (Children’s Hospital), Andy Daly (Modern Family) and Calum Worthy (Austin & Ally).
In advance of the new season, 11 one-minute Wander shorts will debut July 20 on Disney XD, WATCH Disney XD and the XD YouTube channel, rolling out daily Monday through Friday up to the season premiere.
