The first official teaser for Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur has been unleashed, with a special video intro from executive producer and voice star Laurence Fishburne. Based on Marvel’s hit comics, the highly-anticipated series follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City via a time vortex, the duo works together to protect the city’s Lower East Side from danger.
This first glimpse promises a frenetic, hyper-color actioner with strong notes of comic-book linework, ’90s cartoon classics and girl power. The series is being produced by Disney Television Animation for a Summer 2022 premiere.
Actress and singer Diamond White (The Bold and the Beautiful, The Lion Guard) will star as Lunella Lafayette (a.k.a. Moon Girl) alongside Alfre Woodard (Marvel’s Luke Cage) as Lunella’s grandmother, Mimi; Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete) as Lunella’s best friend and manager, Casey; Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live) as Lunella’s mom, Adria; Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts) as Lunella’s dad, James Jr.; Fred Tatasciore (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as the one-and-only Devil Dinosaur; and Gary Anthony Williams (Doc McStuffins) as Lunella’s grandfather, Pops. Fishburne will voice the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster.
From Disney Television Animation, the series is executive produced by Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (black-ish, mixed-ish, grown-ish) and Emmy Award winner Steve Loter (Kim Possible).
