Disney Channel has dropped the official trailer – shown below - for its upcoming 2D animated sibling superhero comedy Hamster & Gretel. From Disney Branded Television and produced by Disney Television Animation, the series introduces Kevin and his younger sister Gretel, who are prepped and readied to become a superhero sibling duo. The series hits the streamer on August 12.
In the show, the super siblings are about to receive superpowers from space aliens. But alas, things do NOT go as planned, and Gretel’s pet hamster, who happens to be named ‘Hamster,’ suddenly has new abilities. So now Kevin must figure out how to work with Gretel and Hamster to protect their city from mysterious dangers.
Newcomer Meli Povenmire stars as Gretel; Michael Cimino (Love, Victor) as Gretel's older brother, Kevin; Beck Bennett (SNL) as Gretel's pet hamster, Hamster; Joey King (Kissing Booth) as her tech-savvy cousin, Fred; Matt Jones (Bob Hearts Abishola) as the siblings' easygoing father, Dave; and Carolina Ravassa (Maya and the Three) as their charismatic mother, Carolina.
Joining the cast as recurring characters are Priah Ferguson (Stranger Things) as Gretel’s best friend, Bailey; Liza Koshy (Liza on Demand) as news reporter Veronica Hill; Alyson Stoner (Phineas and Ferb) and Brock Powell (Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe) as the evil sibling duo Lauren and Lyle a.k.a The Destructress and FistPuncher, respectively; and rapper Akintoye as Kevin’s confident buddy, Anthony. Guest stars are Jenny Lorenzo (Victor and Valentino) as Carolina’s mother, Abuelita; Latin pop artist Karina La Voz as the tear-jerking La Cebolla; Thomas Sanders (Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe) as frat guy horse-man Neighslayer; Casey Hamilton (@MrHamilton) as Gretel’s mild-mannered substitute teacher, Mr. Chabner; and Adam Rose (Merry Happy Whatever) as evil jingle writer The Earworm.
