Marvel heroes are some of the most recognizable and iconic characters in movie history. In the field of animation, we assist Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur as Marvel’s next animated project.

The perfect show for all ages
Like all Marvel projects so far, Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil’s Dinosaur has its title characters based on characters in the comics. We all love a friendly neighborhood hero, and 13-year-old Lunella Lafayette is ready to steal your hearts. Lunella, a young and ambitious genius lives with her family who owns one of the last roller rinks on New York’s Lower East Side. She gets to work with a dangerous time vortex, and everything gets a little out of control. She ends up bringing a T-Rex (Devil Dinosaur) to New York. It’s probably time for them to team up, and Lunella and Devil Dinosaur help protect the community.
The extension of the MCU
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been excellent at developing a dedicated fan base. However, over time, growth is important for any franchise, especially one as massive as Marvel. Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil’s Dinosaur is like a breath of fresh air for Marvel fans. While we all love intricate action sequences and seeing our favorite heroes onscreen, there’s something magical and fun about the kind of comic book-style animation that Marvel shows off in this series. Having projects like this under the Marvel brand really shows how they cover all the entertainment bases. This point of growth on Marvel’s part is also the perfect opportunity to introduce audiences to younger, eccentric, and enigmatic heroes. Either way, Marvel fans definitely need to check this one out!
