It's no secret that Disney has been striving to add more inclusive content to their repertoire as of late but, this new offering just might be their cutest yet! The new series stars Ruth Righi (star of Sudney to the Max). Renée Elise Goldsberry (who played Angelica in Hamilton!), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Birdbox) and Javier Muñoz.
Eureka (Righi), a young inventor in the prehistoric town of Rocky Falls. Goldsberry and Howery will voice her mother and father, Roxy and Rollo. Muñoz will voice Eureka's teacher Ohm.
Check out the description!
"Eureka!" tells the story of a young girl inventor who is way ahead of her time. Utilizing creative out-of-the-box thinking, she designs inventions and contraptions in the hopes of making the world a better place and moving her prehistoric community into a more modern era. With the help of her supportive parents, teacher, best friends—Pepper and Barry—and beloved pet mammoth Murphy, Eureka is learning to embrace that she is not ordinary … she's extraordinary.
"Eureka!" comes from the same animation studio as child favorite Doc McStuffins, Brown Bag Films.
"Eureka is an inspiring young girl with a big imagination and even bigger heart," said Disney Junior's senior VP of original programming and general manager Joe D'Ambrosia. "Through her creative inventions and friendships, she brings her prehistoric town together and helps others learn to look at the world from different perspectives. We like to think of her as our very first Disney Imagineer."
Eureka! is set to debut on Disney Junior later in 2021.
We love a good series that showcases a healthy dose of #BlackGirlMagic!
