Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

Black Panther is currently dominating headlines with its record-breaking worldwide debut last weekend, but let’s not forget there’s Marvel magic gracing the smaller screen too.

Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur (working title) has been announced as Marvel’s latest animated TV project. Based on the popular comic book series, the story follows a nine-year-old African American super genius named Lunella Lafayette and her crimson-colored dinosaur.

The show is being developed for Disney Channels Worldwide, but it’s not yet determined which Disney television outlet (Disney Channel, Disney XD, or Disney Junior) will be getting the series if it is officially green-lit.

Marvel Animation and Cinema Gypsy Productions are producing, with Titmouse, Inc. providing visual development and animation.

Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland, executive producers of the TV shows black-ish and Freeform spinoff grown-ish, will be leading the efforts. Under a deal between Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy Productions and ABC Studios, Fishburne and Sugland will be developing new projects for the studio.

There’s no final word yet on whether the show will go through, but with Black Panther proving the power and importance of representation, the chances look good.

  • I have never read this comic, but I’ve read a lot about it, and I have been hoping for a feature adaptation! A TV series is just as good, if not better! I’m really looking forward to this one!
