“The Rocketeer” Becomes A Disney Jr. Series

Disney Junior has announced the start of production on “The Rocketeer,” a new animated adventure TV series based on the popular comic book and celebrated early 1990s live-action film.

The new take follows Kit, a young girl who receives a surprise package on her birthday revealing she’s next in line to become the Rocketeer – a legendary superhero who has the ability to fly with the help of a rocket-powered jet pack.

Armed with her cool new gear and secret identity, Kit is ready to take flight and save the day with her gadget-minded best friend, Tesh, and airplane mechanic uncle, Ambrose, who join her on her epic adventures.

Geared towards kids 2-7 and their families, each episode features two 11-minute stories and include an original song. Nicole Dubuc (“Transformers: Rescue Bots”) serves as executive producer with the show to premiere in 2019.
