The Disney Channel has ordered Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, an original animated series based on Marvel’s comic book series, from Disney Television Animation. Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC’s Black-ish), Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, and Emmy winner Steve Loter (Disney’s Kim Possible) will executive produce.
EP Fishburne is known to MCU fans as Ant-Man and the Wasp’s Dr. Bill Foster, who in the comics later became Goliath and Giant-Man. The news was announced by Fishburne during Disney Television Animation’s panel at Disney’s D23 Expo.
The series follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her ten-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.
