The adventures of a nine-year-old girl and her dinosaur will soon be coming to a small screen near you. Marvel just announced that it’s moving forward on an animated show based on the comic Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, which was created by Brandon Montclare, Amy Reeder, and Natacha Bustos. Ushering the fan-favorite book to television are black-ish and grown-ish executive producers Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland.


The show is being developed for one of Disney’s signature TV networks, which include Disney Channel, Disney XD, and Disney Junior. Marvel Animation is producing along with Cinema Gypsy Productions. One half of that team is legendary actor Fishburne, who’ll appear in this summer’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Fishburne was teasing another Marvel project not too long ago—saying he hoped it would “change the world”—now I guess we know what it was!

There’s not much more than that at the moment as things are very early in development. But can you think of a better duo to see in animation than super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her dinosaur?

It’s a shame it’s not going to be live action.
