Marvel’s Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur has been one of the quiet delights of the company’s comic book output for a few years now, an all-ages book all about the importance of confidence, trust, and having a giant dinosaur on hand to help you fight off a crush-stricken alien nerd boy or a rampaging Doctor Doom. Drawn by Natacha Bustos, and written at various points by Amy Reeder and Brandon Montclare, the series—centered on the adventures of pre-teen super genius Lunella Lafayette and her bumbling dino companion—is now getting the TV adaptation treatment, courtesy of Laurence Fishburne and Marvel animation

Per Deadline, the series is the latest Marvel property to be adapted into a TV series, with Fishburne’s Cinema Gypsy production company working with Marvel Animation and Disney to bring Lunella’s adventures to life. Marvel’s animation team has been making a major push to tap into the popularity of some of the company’s younger (mostly female) badasses of late; the studio is also currently working on an animated series, Marvel Rising, based on beloved teen characters like Squirrel Girl and Kamala “Ms. Marvel” Khan, who’ve developed devoted fan followings on the internet even if they’ve yet to break out into the mainstream MCU.
