Disney Junior’s Mira, Royal Detective has yet to even air, but that’s not stopping Disney from giving it a second season. Announced during an advance screening of the show in Burbank.
Joe D’Ambrosia, Disney’s SVP of original programming and Disney Junior general manager was ecstatic to make the announcement Wednesday. “Mira, Royal Detective hasn’t even premiered yet and we have already seen the excitement building for this series featuring a brave and empowered young girl who will stop at nothing to solve a case,” D’Ambrosia said. “To ensure that we have plenty of new mysteries ahead for Mira, we are thrilled to begin production on a second season and can’t wait to introduce her to the world in 2020.”
Mira, Royal Detective is set in Jalpur, a land that draws heavy Indian inspiration. The series will be following its namesake character, Mira, as a commoner-turned-royal-detective. Newcomer Leela Ladnier will be voicing the resourceful, little girl.
The series will be a full 30 minutes with two 11-minute sections. The series will have authentic Indian culture and customs. Food, music, fashion, storytelling, art, language, and more will supposedly be touched on.
Besides Ladnier, Kal Penn, Freida Pinto, Utkarsha Ambudkar, Hannah Simone, Kamran Lucas, Sonal Shah, Roshni Edwards, and more are linked to the franchise as leads.
Mission Force One‘s Sascha Paladino will be taking the role of executive producer. The animation will be done by Wild Canary in tandem with Disney Junior.
No word on when it will start airing on Disney Junior.
