Based on the 2015 comic by creative team Brandon Montclare and Amy Reeder, Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur introduced us to Lunalla Lafeyette, a nine year-old New York City girl who happens to be the smartest individual in the entire Marvel Universe. Her runaway genius leads to all sorts of adventures, most importantly teaming up with the titanic Savage Land inhabitant, Devil Dinosaur. As an Inhuman, Lunella possesses the ability to switch consciousness with the massive beast when she’s angry (or sometimes just really hungry). Dubbed Moon-Girl, Lunalla fights evil and tries to survive New York school system, hiding the monstrous Devil-Dinosaur in her home-made lab.
“Moon-Girl & Devil Dinosaur” is set to hit the Disney Channel in 2022.
