Today we’ve learned a bit more about the unique pair of heroes at the center of the highly anticipated animated series Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. Our friends at Disney Channel have shared a first look at new concept art and a logo for Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and they’ve revealed the series’ talented voice cast.
Actress and singer Diamond White, whose credits include The Bold and the Beautiful and Disney’s The Lion Guard, will star in Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur as the brilliant Lunella Lafayette (aka Moon Girl). She’ll be joined by 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 (Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins) as Lunella’s grandfather, Pops. In addition, Laurence Fishburne—who is also series executive producer—will voice the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster.
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, which is based on Marvel’s hit comic books, is slated to premiere in 2022. The 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.
From Disney Television Animation, the series is executive produced by Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC’s black-ish and mixed-ish, Freeform’s grown-ish) and Emmy® Award winner Steve Loter (Disney’s Kim Possible). Emmy Award winner Rodney Clouden (Futurama) is supervising producer, Jeffrey M. Howard (Planes) and Emmy Award-winner Kate Kondell (The Pirate Fairy) are co-producers and story editors, and Pilar Flynn (Elena of Avalor) is producer.
