New Morphle Series to Debut on Disney Junior & Disney+


Morphle and the Magic Pets, from Moonbug Entertainment and Disney Branded Television, has been slated to premiere on Disney Junior and Disney+ in the U.S. on March 20.

As an extension of the original My Magic Pet Morphle YouTube series, the new show features an updated look and more in-depth storytelling. It follows Mila, her stepbrother and her magical and loyal pet Morphle as they use their skills to find matches for new magical pets, keep them out of mischief and solve problems.

Morphle and the Magic Pets will includes 52 seven-minute episodes, as well as 50 three-minute shorts.

Arthur van Merwijk is the creator of My Magic Pet Morphle. Morphle and the Magic Pets is co-developed by Mark Palmer (Hello Ninja) and consulting producer Jill Sanford (Go! Go! Cory Carson).

The new series will begin rolling out globally, excluding China, on Disney+ and Disney Junior at a later date.

“We are very excited to expand Morphle’s fantastical world in close partnership with Disney,” said Olivia Chausson, general manager of Morphle at Moonbug Entertainment. “We have big aspirations for the franchise, fueled by Morphle’s transformational powers and the richness of the magic pet universe. This year we are supercharging growth across new audience touchpoints and are delighted to share Morphle and the Magic Pets with families across the globe.”

Alyssa Sapire, senior VP of development, series and strategy at Disney Junior, added, “At Disney Junior, we are always looking for new ways to connect with our young audience of preschoolers and their families. We knew Morphle was already a big hit on YouTube with our core audience of kids 3 to 5 and were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Moonbug team to build out the world and characters.”
