A new trailer for Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur has arrived. The new animated series comes from Disney Branded Television, and stars Diamond White as Lunella Lafayette and Fred Tatasciore as Devil Dinosaur, with Laurence Fishburne executive producing and voicing The Beyonder. Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur‘s teaser trailer is filled with energy and “Moon Girl Magic,” with Lunella pulling double-duty as a hero protecting New York’s Lower East Side, while also juggling her civilian duties as a 13-year-old super genius who has a 10-ton T-Rex dinosaur as a sidekick.
Viewers are quickly introduced to Moon Girl’s family and friends, before supervillains start destroying the city. When someone recommends calling the Avengers, her family questions if Earth’s Mightiest Heroes even patrol below 14th Street. We also see the moment Devil Dinosaur is teleported into Moon Girl’s lab to form one formidable team.
