During today’s Disney Junior Fun Fest event, which was held at the Disney California Adventure theme park, a brand new animated series called “Kindergarten: The Musical” was announced, which will be released across Disney+ and Disney Junior platforms through 2024.
“Kindergarten: The Musical” is an animated musical series about navigating all of the “firsts” young kids experience while attending kindergarten. Whether having your own set of school supplies for the first time, finding a place to sit in the lunchroom or making a new friend, kindergartners can feel so many feelings that are sometimes hard to express with just words; singing about it feels more comforting and expressive.
The series follows 5-year-old Birdy, who, with the help of her amazing teacher and new friends, uses her imagination to express her fears, excitement and joy through big Broadway-style song and dance numbers, proving that kindergarten is just like a big stage and there is nothing a good song can’t fix.
Disney Branded Television President Ayo Davis said during the Disney Junior Fun Fest event:
“Disney Junior is already home to some of the most beloved preschool programming, and today, we have unveiled the next slate of content that is sure to entertain preschool kids for years to come,. As with Disney Junior’s current slate, each of these projects is unique, inspiring and encompasses all of the brand values that have come to represent Disney Junior over the last decade — storytelling with heart that resonates with both kids and parents. From beloved icons such as Mickey and Spidey to new stories and characters, this slate further solidifies Disney Junior as THE home for preschoolers.”

It’s being created by Michelle Lewis and Charlton Pettus, with executive producers Tom Warburton, Michelle Lewis, Kay Hanley, Charlton Pettus and Dan Petty. Laurie Israel will also be a co-Executive Producer/Story Editor.
