Everything We Know About Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur
Although Moon Girl was originally conceived by Marvel Comics in 2015, Devil Dinosaur first appeared in his own comic book series in 1978. At the time he was partnered with Moon-Boy, an ape-like friend who went on adventures with the titular dinosaur in a parallel universe known as “Dinosaur World.” In 2015, Moon-Boy was killed by a pair of Killer Folk who attempted to steal a valuable object known as the Nightstone. However, one of Lunella’s experiments opens up a portal, transporting both the Nightstone and Devil Dinosaur to present-day New York City.
The Bold and the Beautiful and Boo! A Madea Halloween star, Diamond White, voices a 13-year-old Lunella in the upcoming Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur adaptation. She is joined by Golden Globe-winning actor Alfre Woodard as Lunella’s grandmother Mimi, Saturday Night Live-alum Sasheer Zamata as Lunella’s mother Andria, Coming 2 America star Jermaine Fowler as James Jr. Lunella’s father, and The Matrix‘s Laurence Fishburne as The Beyonder. The extensive cast features the likes of Alison Brie, Andy Cohen, Daveed Diggs, Maya Hawke, Colbie Smulders, Jennifer Hudson, Luis Guzman, Wesley Snipes, and even renowned former NASA astronaut, Mae Jemison.
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur will premiere on the Disney Channel February 10, and stream on Disney+ shortly thereafter. Season 1 of the animated series will consist of six episodes with the show having already been renewed for season 2. As the series’ premiere is less than one month away, fans do not have to wait much longer to finally see Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur‘s television debut.
