Disney has announced that another batch of new episodes of the hit animated series, “Hamster & Gretel”, will be coming to Disney+ on Wednesday, 15th February 2023. The new batch drop will include five episodes from the first season.
“Hamster & Gretel” introduces Kevin and his younger sister, Gretel, who are about to be bestowed superpowers by space aliens. But something goes awry, and it’s Gretel and her pet hamster (named Hamster) who suddenly have new abilities. Now, protective older brother Kevin must figure out how to work with both Gretel and her pet, Hamster, to protect their city from mysterious dangers.
Starring in the series is newcomer Meli Povenmire as Gretel; Michael Cimino (“Love, Victor”) as Gretel’s older brother, Kevin; Beck Bennett (“SNL”) as Gretel’s pet hamster, Hamster; Joey King (“Kissing Booth”) as her tech-savvy cousin, Fred; Matt Jones (“Bob Hearts Abishola”) as the siblings’ easygoing father, Dave; and Carolina Ravassa (“Maya and the Three”) as their charismatic mother, Carolina.
Created by Dan Povenmire (of the Emmy Award-winning global hit series “Phineas and Ferb”), “Hamster and Gretel” is produced by Disney Television Animation and is inspired by Povenmire’s relationship with his significantly younger sister. Brandi Young (“Milo Murphy’s Law”) serves as producer; Joanna Hausmann (“Bill Nye Saves the World”) will serve as co-producer/story editor, and Dorothea Gerassimova (“Mira, Royal Detective”) is the art director.
The first ten episodes of “Hamster & Gretel” are available to stream on Disney+ now, and recently, it was announced that the show would be returning for a second season.
