This weekend, during a Marvel panel at New York Comic Con 22 (NYCC220), Marvel and Disney Branded Television announced the new animated series “Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur” has received a season two renewal ahead of the first season’s debut.
More News About the Series
In addition to the renewal news, Marvel also released a clip from the theme song, “Moon Girl Magic,” written and produced by executive music producer Raphael Saadiq, and performed by series star Diamond White (voice of Lunella aka Moon Girl).
The video also features animation from the show. Take a look and listen:
It’s got a funky beat, and some of the harmonies remind me of Missy Elliott. I think as a theme song, it sets the tone for the series.
