Disney Junior will debut a new intergalactic adventure series, Miles from Tomorrowland, on Friday, February 6, on Disney Channel. The launch will comprise four back-to-back episodes which will introduce viewers to cool space and science facts as they get to know young explorer Miles Callisto and his family on their outer space missions.
The show follows Miles (voiced by Cullen McCarthy), his ship captain mom Phoebe (Olivia Munn), mechanical engineer dad Leo (Tom Kenny), tech-savvy sis Loretta (Fiona Bishop) and pet robo-ostrich Merc (Dee Bradley Baker). Together, they explore new galaxies filled with peculiar beings, space-age vehicles and high-tech gadgets as they help connect these distant corners on behalf of the Tomorrowland Transit Authority. Recurring guest stars will include Adrian Grenier, Mark Hamill, George Takei, Bill Nye, Wil Wheaton, Alton Brown and Brenda Song.
The producers consult space, science and technology experts from NASA, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the Space Tourism Society and Google to develop the show’s STEM curriculum. This is augmented by the Miles from Tomorrowland: Missions app for iOS and Android launching in late January, and a game incorporating a 3D virtual reality space simulator coming to the WATCH Disney Junior app. More info, videos and activities can be found at disneyjunior.com/miles.
