The new season will premiere on Friday 4th November 2022 at 11:00 a.m. EDT on Disney Channel and Disney Junior, timed to Mickey’s birthday month. The episodes will stream on Disney+ early next year.

Season two finds Mickey and the gang visiting a variety of magical lands—such as Pirate World, Underwater Ocean World, Prehistoric World and Herotropolis—where they become powerful superheroes. Funny also turns into a modern-day jet, helping the pals explore real-world cultures, from observing Lunar New Year in Seoul to celebrating Día de los Muertos in Mexico City.
The upcoming season features the return of John Stamos (“Big Shot”) as Captain Salty Bones and introduces new characters voiced by Yvette Nicole Brown (Disney Junior’s “Firebuds”) as Pepper Lemon, a rival pirate to Captain Salty Bones; Lois Chimimba (“The One”) as the Tooth Fairy; Alice Lee (“Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist”) as Ye Eun, a girl who works at a Korean folk village; Yasmine Al Massri (“Quantico”) as Bast, an Egyptian cat-like statue; and Jee Young Han (“Perry Mason”) as Cho Sook, a Korean gumiho.
