An Uncanon Marvel Series Receives A Perfect Score on Rotten Tomatoes

Marvel’s Phase 5 is starting to build momentum with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania scoring its first positive reactions ahead of its worldwide release on the 18th. Fans should not be surprised given that MCU always tends to provide impressive big-screen outputs. Marvel’s television offerings rarely get the same successful reactions as their movies, but a recent un-canon MCU series received a perfect 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, and fans are intrigued by what the reason could be.

Marvel’s animated series Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur did not make much noise upon its Disney Channel debut, but as the information emerged that Rotten Tomatoes gave the MCU series an impressive 100%, fans began to tune in. Being positively compared to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse's animation style, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur provided exciting and vibrant cinematic elements that those who have seen them can’t get enough of.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is based on the same-named comic book characters and will center on a 13-year-old brilliant young girl named Lunella Lafayette (voiced by Diamond White), who discovers a powerful, 10-ton T-Rex named Devil Dinosaur (voiced by Fred Tatasciore). They work together to solve problems in modern-day New York City, trying to save the world. The producers of the series include Disney Television Animation, Marvel Animation, Titmouse, and Cinema Gypsy Productions, with Flying Bark Productions providing animation services.

The animated series is also praised for its representation, as it will feature Marvel's first black female teenage hero, Moon Girl. “I was having a conversation with my brother the other day and he was like, ‘Diamond, you know, this is, like, really big.’ And I was like, ‘I dunno, I'm scared,’ White narrated to the PEOPLE Everyday podcast. “But I'm just excited to finally see a superhero that has my skin tone and looks like me. That is so important to me.”

“I'm a big fan of Superman but I couldn't connect to Superman because he's, you know, a white guy,” she continued. “Now that I'm voicing this character, [my favorite superhero is] definitely Moon Girl because she's what I wanted to see on my screen growing up.”

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur's first six episodes will air on Disney+ starting February 15, 2023.
