Lunetta Lafayette and Devil Dinosaur are finally making the move to animation.

According to Deadline, Disney Channels Worldwide are developing a new show based around the brilliant young inventor and her dino-sidekick, who currently star in their own comic book series called Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur. Lunella, who holds the Moon Girl mantle, has been declared the smartest character in the current Marvel universe. She shares a mental link with Devil Dinosaur due to her Inhuman lineage.

Also intriguing, the new animated series, which is tentatively called Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, comes in collaboration with black-ish and grown-ish executive producers Laurence Fishburne and Helen Sugland. This new show is part of an overall deal that Fishburne's Cinema Gypsy Productions has inked with ABC Studios.

Late last year, Fishburne let it slip that he was working on a secret project with Marvel, but none of our original MCU speculations actually panned out, if this is indeed the project he was referring to. However, we have been pitching the extensive possibilities of a Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur television show for quite a while now.

The new series is still technically still in development, and there's no word yet on which of Disney Channels Worldwide's networks will be airing it when it officially moves forward -- Disney Channel, Disney XD, or Disney Junior. Either way, it's really exciting to see Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur finally getting their time to shine on-screen.
