The special debuts April 14 at 12:00 a.m. PDT on Disney+, 7:00 a.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Junior and 7:30 a.m. EDT/PDT on Disney Channel.

In “The Sign,” Dave McCormack and Melanie Zanetti reprise their roles as the voices of Bandit and Chilli Heeler, and Patrick Brammall returns as the voice of Uncle Rad, Claudia O’Doherty as Frisky, alongside Megan Washington as Calypso, Myf Warhurst as Trixie, and Rose Byrne as Aunt Brandy.

Bluey tells the story of Bluey and her family with new episodes showcasing the joyful simplicity that can be found in families, turning everyday events of family life, like making a cubby house (blanket fort) or a trip to the beach, into unique adventures that bring to life how children learn and grow through play.

Jointly commissioned by ABC Children’s and BBC Studios Kids & Family, Bluey is created and written by Brumm and produced by multi-Emmy Award-winning Ludo Studio in association with Screen Queensland and Screen Australia. The series streams to U.S. and global audiences (outside of Australia, New Zealand, and China) across Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney+ through a global broadcasting deal between BBC Studios Kids & Family and Disney Branded Television.

Bluey has won numerous awards, including the International Kids Emmy Awards, a Critics Choice Award nomination, the Television Critics Association Award, and BAFTA Children & Young People Awards.
