Who are Lunella Lafayette and Devil Dinosaur
Lunella Lafayette is a 13-year-old super-genius and Devil Dinosaur is a 10-ton T-Rex out of time. This cohesive contrasting duo was first introduced in the first issue of their comic book released in 2015. Lunella first meets Devil DInosaur as he hops through a portal from the Savage Land in order to avenge his former partner, Moon Boy, and reclaim the Nightstone which winds up in Lunella’s possession. She intended to use it to help remove her Inhuman DNA in fear of changing from Terrigensis. It is unclear how close to the original origin story the series will be, as Terrigenises did grant Lunella the ability to switch with Devil.
However, the series doesn’t look like it will need that aspect and looks to be focusing and emphasizing the contrasts of the characters and the bond they build despite their differences.
Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Soundtrack by Raphael Saadiq
Outside of the visual, performance, and awesome source material to be inspired by, the series boasts an incredible infusion of music. With Executive Music Producer and three-time Grammy Award winner Raphael Saadiq as the series composer, it should come as no surprise. The soundtrack for the series will release on the same day as the series premiere and can now be pre-saved on Spotify and Apple Music.
Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur premieres on the Disney Channel on February 10, 2023, as will the soundtrack. Then the first six episodes will become available on Disney+ on February 15, 2023!
