Moonbug Entertainment ("CoComelon", "Blippi") along with Disney Branded Television, will debut a new CGI original series, "Morphle and the Magic Pets", on Disney Junior and Disney+ starting on March 20, 2024. The series will include 52 x 7-minute episodes and 50 x 3-minute shorts. This series, an evolution from the original YouTube series, features a brand-new, premium look and more in-depth storytelling. Following its premiere in the U.S., the series will start rolling out globally (excluding China).

Olivia Chausson, General Manager of Morphle at Moonbug Entertainment said, “We are very excited to expand Morphle’s fantastical world in close partnership with Disney. We have big aspirations for the franchise, fueled by Morphle’s transformational powers and the richness of the magic pet universe. This year we are supercharging growth across new audience touchpoints, and are delighted to share Morphle and the Magic Pets with families across the globe.”

"Morphle and the Magic Pets" originated as a short-form three-minute YouTube series, "Morphle". The new expanded series for Disney allows the pets to have bigger personalities so kids can build a relationship and embark on more in-depth creative adventures.

"Morphle and the Magic Pets" follows Mila and her stepbrother, Jordie, as they leap into a world of adventure with the help of Morphle, Mila's magical and loyal pet who has the power to morph into whatever she imagines. The trio will use their skills and smarts to keep magic pets out of mischief, solve problems and find "magic matches" for each of the hilarious and unique newcomers.

Alyssa Sapire, Senior Vice President, Development, Series & Strategy, Disney Junior said, “At Disney Junior, we are always looking for new ways to connect with our young audience of preschoolers and their families. We knew Morphle was already a big hit on YouTube with our core audience of kids 3-5 and were thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Moonbug team to build out the world and characters.”

Arthur van Merwijk is the creator of "My Magic Pet Morphle", which "Morphle and the Magic Pets" is based off of. The new series was co-developed by Mark Palmer ("Hello Ninja") and Consulting Producer Jill Sanford ("Go! Go! Cory Carson"). Nick Confalone ("Helpsters") serves as Story Editor.
