Disney Channel will be adapting Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur as into an original animated series.
The series is about the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her 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.
“As an avid comic book fan, I am thrilled to be involved with Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur,” Fishburne said. “Disney Channel is the perfect platform to explore this pint-sized female African American superhero, and I can’t wait for their audience to enjoy the lighthearted adventures of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur.”
The series will be executive produced by Cinema Gypsy Productions, Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, and Loter. Jeff Howard (Planes) and Kate Kondell (The Pirate Fairy) serve as co-producers and story editors.
