From big budget billboard ads to the simple word of mouth that it’s been generating, you’ve probably already heard about the recent Disney Channel debut of Marvel’s Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur.
The show, a graffiti-animated cartoon series that incorporates NYC’s Lower East Side as its backdrop, is the latest in a new wave of Black animated shows complimented by the likes of Disney+’s reboot of The Proud Family and HBO Max’s Velma — the latter puts an ethnic spin on the classic Scooby Doo gang character, voiced by Mindy Kaling.
With Moon Girl, artistic elements that take inspo from the work of late art legend Jean-Michel Basquiat and even music production being handled by Raphael Saadiq really puts this one in a category of its own. Thankfully, we were lucky to get an exclusive on the show from lead stars Diamond White and Laurence Fishburne.
We’ll give you a hint on who they play on the show, respectively:

While on the press run, we got a minute to speak with Fishburne and White separately and get their individual takes on what makes Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur so special. We also got a few other good questions in as well, one especially for seasoned vet Fishburne when it comes to his opinion on Hollywood horror reboots. You see, his character from the 1987 Krueger slasher A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors never actually died. Could Max Daniels make an official return in a future Freddy film? He answered it!
