I wonder what this means for the planned live-action re-quel.
Disney Junior has begun production on "The Rocketeer," a new animated adventure series for young kids and their families slated to debut in 2019. Inspired by Dave Stevens' popular comic book series, "The Rocketeer" follows Kit, a young girl who receives a surprise package on her birthday revealing she's next in line to become the Rocketeer, a legendary superhero who has the ability to fly with the help of a rocket-powered jet pack. Armed with her cool new gear and secret identity, Kit is ready to take flight and save the day with her gadget-minded best friend, Tesh, and airplane mechanic uncle, Ambrose, who join her on her epic adventures.Source: http://www.thefutoncritic.com/news/2018 ... 7disney01/
The announcement was made today by Joe D'Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming, Disney Junior. D'Ambrosia said, "We are very excited to introduce 'The Rocketeer' to our young Disney Junior audience. The vast storytelling found in the original comic books provides the perfect opportunity to create an exciting new adventure series told from a young girl superhero perspective that the whole family can enjoy together."
Geared towards kids 2-7 and their families, each episode of "The Rocketeer" will feature two 11-minute stories and include an original song. Nicole Dubuc ("Transformers: Rescue Bots") is executive producer. The series will be produced by Wild Canary in association with Disney Junior.
A new “Rocketeer” project had been rumored for the past two years, but confirmed in February when Disney announced that the 1930s comics are being reimagined for the 2-5 year-old audience for Disney Jr.Source: https://variety.com/2018/tv/festivals/d ... 202843108/
The CGI series will be set in the contemporary world and, according to Kanter, depart substantially from the original comics “But it’s a piece of IP that is very alive at Disney,” she explained, “and we imagined who could be the Rocketeer for this generation of kids.”
An early animation test was screened for the audience who got to see the series lead, six-year-old Kit Seacourt, trying out her new gear, which ended with a line that seems likely to be repeated, “Never fear, I’m the Rocketeer!”
