Laurence Fishburn executive produces the story of a genius little girl and her pet tyrannosaurus rex.
After years of rumors and development, we have finally gotten our first look at the Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur cartoon — based on the comic book of the same name.
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her 10-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.
Actress and singer Diamond White (The Bold and the Beautiful, The Lion Guard) will star as Lunella Lafayette (a.k.a. Moon Girl) alongside Alfre Woodard (Marvel’s Luke Cage) as Lunella’s grandmother, Mimi; Libe Barer (Sneaky Pete) as Lunella’s best friend and manager, Casey; Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live) as Lunella’s mom, Adria; Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts) as Lunella’s dad, James Jr.; Fred Tatasciore (Marvel’s Avengers Assemble) as the one-and-only Devil Dinosaur; and Gary Anthony Williams (Doc McStuffins) as Lunella’s grandfather, Pops. Laurence Fishburne will voice the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster.
From Disney Television Animation, the series is executive produced by Fishburne and Helen Sugland’s Cinema Gypsy Productions (black-ish, mixed-ish, grown-ish) and Emmy Award winner Steve Loter (Kim Possible).
Lunella, A.K.A. Moon Girl, was created by Brandon Montclare, Amy Reeder, and Natacha Bustos (and colored by Tamra Bonvillain) in 2015.
