Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur headed to Disney Channel in 2020

Moon Girl and the Devil Dinosaur

Story by Jack Foley

MARVEL Entertainment’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is headed to Disney Channel in 2020.

Adapted from the 2016 Marvel comic book series of the same name, the story follows the adventures of 13-year-old named Lunella Lafayette, described as one of the smartest people in the world (although not everyone believes her), and her pet dinosaur, Devil, who arrived in the present day thanks to an accidental time vortex.

The concept is an updated take on Captain America and X-Men co-creator Jack Kirby’s 1978 Devil Dinosaur comic book series.

The new animated series will come from Disney Television Animation, with Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions as executive producers.

Fishburne said in a statement: “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 light-hearted adventures of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur.”
