Marvel has released the first look at some concept art that was created for their upcoming Disney Channel animated series Moon Girl and Dinosaur. They’ve also announced the voice cast for the series.
The series is based on Marvel’s hit comic book series, and the story follows the adventures of a 13-year-old super-genius named 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.”
The series stars actress and singer Diamond White (The Bold and the Beautiful, The Lion Guard) as Lunella Lafayette (aka Moon Girl); Alfre Woodard (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.
Marvel‘s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is being produced by Black-ish and Grown-ish executive producers Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland and it’s slated to premiere in 2022.
