Oh yeah – I am also going to be playing Marvel comic book character, Lunella Lafayette (aka Moon Girl) in an upcoming Disney Channel animated series called Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. This is going to be a different acting experience this time around. I have a great cast and crew of talent, love Lunella’s character, and am thrilled my team is allowing me to have a heavy influence on the creative direction of her style!
I wonder what would be different about this than other voice acting gigs for her.

I thought she was talking about how she and Devil Dinosaur switch minds because of her Inhuman ability, so she'd have to play Devil Dinosaur in her body .Maybe she has a bit of creative control on how the character is portrayed, like if she asked for Lunella to be a singer like her.
That feels like something we would see the crew of a Disney Animation show do.Laurence Fishburne represented the show on a TCA Press Tour panel about Diversity in Children’s Animation. Though I haven't noticed any summaries of the panel or recordings yet.
Minor but the show's crew also visited the Avengers Campus attraction.
Set to premiere in 2022, Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is based on a comic series about a 13-year-old super-genius named Lunella Lafayette who accidentally brings a 10-ton T-Rex to present-day New York City, naming him Devil Dinosaur. “I’m somebody who'd collected comic books, both DC and Marvel, and I used to read Moon-Boy and Devil Dinosaur, which is the original book created by Jack Kirby way back in the day,” explained legendary actor Laurence Fishburne, who serves as executive producer on the show. “When they updated it, I went to meet with Louis D’Esposito and the other cats over at Marvel, and we were trying to figure out a way for me to sort of enter into their world. And they showed me that book and they said, ‘What about this?”’ I was like, “‘Yeah, okay, we know what to do with that.’”
“You can't be what you can't see,” Fishburne added, referring to the importance of having characters that kids can connect with in mainstream media. “As a child, it's very important for you to be able to see examples of what you want to be, and to have the opportunity to do that here, to be able to create that for yourself.” With Disney Channel’s huge audience and Marvel’s gigantic fanbase, there seems to be infinite possibilities with this series. “Our animation team has been working really hard on trying to create a look that is kind of fresh and something that is going to catch the eye of the viewer.”
Yep, here's the poster.It looks like the show might be coming out in February 2022.
Bleeding Cool noted yesterday that there would be some big Marvel Comics news coming today, including for Daredevil with Chip Zdarsky and Marco Checchettobleedingcool.com
