Disney Junior Begins Production on Two Original Series “Vampirina” and “Puppy Dog Tails”

Disney Junior has ordered production on two new original series – “Vampirina” and “Puppy Dog Tails”. Second seasons have also been ordered for the new hit shows “Lion Guard” and “Goldie & Bear”.

The announcement was made by Nancy Kanter, executive vice president, Original Programming and general manager, Disney Junior Worldwide. Kanter said, “Five years ago, we launched Disney Junior with the goal of providing inspired storytelling and aspirational characters that would resonate with our young audience and their parents and caregivers, while also introducing age appropriate social-emotional concepts and other key learnings relevant to kids age 2-7. Our programming has upheld these values and we are pleased to introduce two new series that are sure to do the same.”

“Vampirina,” is inspired by Disney Publishing’s popular children’s book series “Vampirina Ballerina,” and tells the story of a young vampire girl who faces the joys and trials of being the new kid in town when her family moves from Transylvania to Pennsylvania. Many of the key creative professionals behind Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning series “Doc McStuffins” are at the helm, including executive producer Chris Nee and co- executive producer Norton Virgien. Nicky Phelan (“Granny O’Grimm’s Sleeping Beauty”) is directing the series, and the Academy Award-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films is producing in association with Disney Junior.

“Puppy Dog Tails,” is created by the comedian and actor Harland Williams, and centers on two fun-loving pug puppies, Bingo and Rolly, whose thrill-seeking appetites take them on daily adventures around their neighborhood and beyond. Williams also serves as consulting producer with Sean Coyle (“The Awesomes,” “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse”) as executive producer and Dean Batali (“That ’70s Show”) as story editor. The series is a production of Wild Canary in association with Disney Junior.

These two new shows sound like a lot of fun, and how exciting that “Lion Guard”and “Goldie & Bear” will be continuing with new seasons?
