Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Series Announced

Marvel announced today that the Disney Channel has ordered an animated series based on the Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur comic books. The show will follow
the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette and her ten-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. After Lunella accidentally brings Devil Dinosaur into present-day New York City via a time vortex, the duo works together to protect the city's Lower East Side from danger.
Executive producer Laurence Fishburne commented,
As an avid comic book fan, I am thrilled to be involved with 'Marvel's Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.' Disney Channel is the perfect platform to explore this pint-sized female African American superhero and I can't wait for their audience to enjoy the lighthearted adventures of Lunella and Devil Dinosaur.
The press release doesn't mention whether the show will be part of the MCU, but then again, the initial announcement of Cloak & Dagger didn't mention the MCU either.
