Moonbug Entertainment Teams with Disney Branded TV


Moonbug Entertainment and Disney Branded Television have partnered to develop the new CGI series Morphle, based on the hit short-form show My Magic Pet Morphle.

The new series will see Mila and her stepbrother go on adventures with the help of her pet Morphle, who has the power to change into whatever she needs. It is set to debut in 2024 exclusively on Disney+ and Disney Junior globally, excluding China.

Disney will also launch episodes of My Magic Pet Morphle on its platforms. The short-form series was created by Arthur van Merwijk. The new series was co-developed by Mark Palmer (Hello Ninja) and consulting producer Jill Sanford (Go! Go! Cory Carson). Nick Confalone (Helpsters) serves as story editor.

“The agreement with Disney Branded Television is a significant milestone for the Morphle brand and recognizes Moonbug Entertainment’s continued growth within the kids’ market,” said Andy Yeatman, managing director of the Americas and originals at Moonbug Entertainment. “We are excited to expand our original content initiatives and bring the fun and fantastical Morphle universe to more families around the world.”

Jane Gould, executive VP of content research, insights and scheduling at Disney General Entertainment, said, “This inaugural partnership with Moonbug Entertainment for this new iteration of Morphle is a welcome venture for us. The characters and stories from this beloved franchise have delighted and entertained kids and families for more than a decade, and the sensational combination of magic and adventure is the perfect fit for our Disney Junior and Disney+ audiences.”
