Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur animated series is getting a second season pickup ahead of its February 2023 debut, and in the meantime Disney also revealed the show’s title sequence Saturday during New York Comic Con.
The Moon Girl animated series stars Lunella (Diamond White), a 13-year-old who accidentally brings the 10-ton Devil Dinosaur (Fred Tatasciore) into the present day. She and the dinosaur partner up and protect Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The show is based on the comic series that debuted in 2015.
The title sequence shows off a comic-inspired animation style, including characters and scenery that have a hand-drawn appearance, as Lunella roller-skates through the city with her dinosaur. The sequence also features a bouncy theme song written and produced by three-time Grammy Award winner Raphael Saadiq, who will be the show’s executive music producer.
The show’s regular cast will also include Libe Barer as Casey, Alfre Woodard as Mimi, Sasheer Zamata as Adria, Jermaine Fowler as James Jr. and Gary Anthony Williams as Pops. Actor Laurence Fishburne recurs as the Beyonder and also serves as an executive producer on the show along with Helen Sugland.
It’s been a long road for the Moon Girl series, which was first officially announced in 2019 for the Disney Channel. The show will still debut on the network and will also stream on Disney Plus.
“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,” Fishburne said in 2019 when the show was announced.
