DISNEY CHANNEL GREENLIGHTS ‘MARVEL’S MOON GIRL AND DEVIL DINOSAUR,’ AN ORIGINAL ANIMATED SERIES BASED ON MARVEL’S HIT COMIC BOOKS, FROM DISNEY TELEVISION ANIMATION

Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions, Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, and Steve Loter to Executive-Produce

Disney Channel has ordered “Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur,” an original animated series based on Marvel’s hit comic books, from Disney Television Animation. Executive produced by Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC’s “black-ish”), Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment, and Emmy® Award-winner Steve Loter (Disney’s “Kim Possible”), 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.

The news was announced by Laurence Fishburne during Disney Television Animation’s panel at Disney’s D23 Expo. Fishburne said, “As an avid comic book fan, I am thrilled to be involved with ‘Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.’ 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.”

Meredith Roberts, senior vice president, Animation Strategy, Disney Channels said, “Disney TV Animation is thrilled to collaborate with renowned producers Laurence, Helen and Steve and the talented Marvel Animation team to bring this modern-day roller-skating, gadget-wielding tween superhero, and her larger-than-life partner to Disney Channel.”

Cort Lane, senior vice president, Marvel Animation & Family Entertainment said, “Lunella doesn’t know she is the smartest person on the planet, but audiences will soon know how very cool Moon Girl is. Her adventures with a giant buddy, Devil Dinosaur, are filled with so much wonder and joy, and this historic partnership with Disney Television Animation and Cinema Gypsy Productions proved the right formula to bring them to television.”

Jeff Howard (“Planes”) and Kate Kondell (“The Pirate Fairy”) serve as co-producers and story editors.
