It will premiere in the U.S. on March 20, and on Disney Channel India on March 22.

A music video featuring a mashup of the series’ main title song and Mira’s song, “We’re on the Case,” will debut on February 21, on DisneyMusicVevo and in the DisneyNOW app, with Walt Disney Records releasing a digital soundtrack with 20 songs from the series on March 20. Further, the DisneyNOW app will debut a hidden object game in which players are invited to help Mira solve mysteries by following a trail of clues in an immersive 3D environment.
