At the Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Disney has announced a brand new animated series called, “Dragon Striker”, which will be released on Disney+ and other Disney-owned platforms in 2023 and beyond.

When the world’s most popular sport combines with magic, awesomeness escalates quicker than a dragon-powered strike! In this action-packed adventure full of comedy and high-stakes sports drama, elite players have a magical signature move they can use on the pitch. Twelve-year-old Key is a farm boy fanboy who can only dream of entering the famous school where the greatest players train before joining the big leagues—until he discovers he has his own ultra-powerful spell and may even be the legendary “Dragon Striker.” Key joins a team of hapless underdogs who band together to take on the school champions, all the while fighting to prevent an ancient evil from resurfacing.

Orion Ross, vice president of Animation, Disney EMEA, said in a statement:

“‘The Doomies’ and ‘Dragon Striker’ are the first part of a new slate of animated originals we’re developing in EMEA for global family audiences on Disney Channel and Disney+. These ambitious, premium series will introduce the work of leading creators from our region to the world, and we are both honored and inspired to be working with this new generation of storytellers.”

Here’s a first look at this new series:

Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television, said in a statement:

“The announcements out of Annecy today further cement Disney as THE leader in animation.  These new series represent the very best from our teams at Disney Television Animation and Disney Junior. They build upon Disney Branded Television’s commitment to work with incredible storytellers, whose diverse voices not only allow our young audiences to see themselves reflected on screen but help them better navigate their world.”


The series is being created by Cybergroup Studios and La Chouette Compagnie for Disney EMEA
