The Oscar-nominated actor voices bad guy villain Molecule Man in the next season of the Marvel comic-inspired animated series that follows 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur, who accidentally travels through time to present-day New York City.
Disney Branded TV has announced Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Season 2 gets a new bad guy, with Academy Award-nominee Edward James Olmos lending his powerful voice to Molecule Man, who must face off with The Beyonder (voiced by Laurence Fishburne).
In the show, Molecule Man is a powerful being able to manipulate non-living organic matter. Often feeling like there was no place for him, he escaped to a whole new planet and used his powers to create an incredible world of natural wonder, soon making it a popular destination for aliens and beings across the multiverse! Molecule Man first appeared in Marvel Comics’ “Fantastic Four” #20 (November 1963).
Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City, the duo works together to protect the city's Lower East Side from danger.
The show stars Diamond White as Lunella (aka Moon Girl); Alfre Woodard as Lunella's grandmother, Mimi; Libe Barer as Lunella's best friend and manager, Casey; Sasheer Zamata as Lunella's mom, Adria; Jermaine Fowler as Lunella's dad, James Jr.; Gary Anthony Williams as Lunella's grandfather, Pops; and series executive producer Fishburne in the recurring role of The Beyonder, a curious and mischievous trickster.
Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series is executive produced by Fishburne and Helen Sugland's Cinema Gypsy Productions (ABC's black-ish and mixed-ish, Freeform's grown-ish) and Steve Loter (Disney's Kim Possible).
Grammy Award-winning Raphael Saadiq serves as the series' executive music producer. The songwriting and music highlight the many cultures and communities of New York City (hip-hop, pop, R&B, jazz, Jamaican, funk, Latin, etc.).
