Marvel’s First Black Girl Superhero, Moon Girl, Debuts at Disney California Adventure Park

Disneyland Resort announced for a limited time beginning February 15th at Hollywood Land in Disney California Adventure Park, guests will have the opportunity to encounter Moon Girl from the newest Disney series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, which debuted on Disney Channel February 19th and on Disney+ on February 15th.

The series follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette (aka Moon Girl) and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur, whom she accidentally brings into present-day New York City. The duo works together to protect the Lower East Side neighborhood in New York City from danger.
