Did you really think today’s D23 Expo 2022 sessions were going to wrap up for the day without a look at a project that we’ve been excited about since it was first announced? That’s right, The Disney Channel, Disney + & executive producer Laurence Fishburne‘s upcoming Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. And while we’ve enjoyed all of the previews and behind-the-scenes looks, we have to admit that today kinda edges the rest of them out because not only do we have a new teaser trailer for the Diamond White (13-year-old genius Lunella Lafayette aka Moon Girl) -starring series, but we also have a confirmed February premiere date.
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur stars Diamond White as Lunella (aka Moon Girl); Alfre Woodard as Lunella’s grandmother, Mimi; Libe Barer as Lunella’s best friend and manager, Casey; Sasheer Zamata as Lunella’s mom, Adria; Jermaine Fowler as Lunella’s dad, James Jr .; Gary Anthony Williams as Lunella’s grandfather, Pops; and series executive producer Laurence Fishburne in the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster. Now here’s a look at the latest teaser trailer for the animated series, set to hit our screens on February 10th on The Disney Channel (and shortly after, on Disney +):
