Move over, Old Lace — we've got a brand-new dinosaur ready to take over our screens!

We previously revealed that the Disney Channel announced Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur animated series at D23 2019. We're now excited to share that they've found their cast!

Actress and singer Diamond White will star as Lunella Lafayette (aka Moon Girl) in the channel's highly anticipated animated series, slated to premiere in 2022.

But that's not all; also joining the lead cast are:

  • Alfre Woodard (Marvel's Luke Cage) 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.
  • Fred Tatasciore (Marvel's Avengers Assemble) as the one-and-only Devil Dinosaur
  • Gary Anthony Williams as Lunella's grandfather, Pops.


Series executive producer Laurence Fishburne (Ant-Man and The Wasp) will voice the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster.

Based on Marvel's hit comic books, Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City via a time vortex, the duo works together to protect the city's Lower East Side from danger.

From Disney Television Animation, the series is executive produced by Fishburne and Helen Sugland's Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC's "black-ish" and "mixed-ish," Freeform's "grown-ish") and Emmy® Award-winner Steve Loter (Disney's "Kim Possible"). Emmy Award-winner Rodney Clouden ("Futurama") is supervising producer, Jeffrey M. Howard ("Planes") and Emmy Award-winner Kate Kondell ("The Pirate Fairy") are co-producers and story editors, and Pilar Flynn ("Elena of Avalor") is producer.
