Karen Gillan is also attached to voice Rhona in the series and will also be an executive producer on the series. She has previously starred in “Dr Who”, “Jumanji” and “Guardians Of The Galaxy”.
Danny Elfman will also be creating and overseeing the music on the series. He will also be an executive producer on the show.
Ayo Davis, president of Disney Branded Television said in a statement:
“We’re so pleased that Emily and Karen chose Disney Branded as their home. They’re exceptional at creating characters that embody powerful moments of anticipation, humor, and warmth. Along with Danny, a music visionary who sees all the magic that’s possible in a story, we know that we are in great hands.”
