During a Disney Animation Panel at San Diego Comic Con, a new sneak peek was shown of a new animation series, “The Rocketeer”, which is coming soon to Disney Junior.
Inspired by Dave Stevens’ popular comic book series, “The Rocketeer” follows Kit, a young girl who receives a surprise package on her birthday revealing she’s next in line to become the Rocketeer, a legendary superhero who has the ability to fly with the help of a rocket-powered jet pack. Armed with her cool new gear and secret identity, Kit is ready to take flight and save the day with her gadget-minded best friend, Tesh and Butch the bulldog by her side. Geared towards kids 2-7 and their families, each episode of “The Rocketeer” features two 11-minute stories and includes an original song.
Expect “The Rocketeer” to head to Disney+ as well, though nothing has officially been announced yet.
