Disney XD has given “Future-Worm!” a premiere date. The new series, which is an adventure series about an optimistic 12-year-old who creates a time machine lunch box, will launch on Disney XD this summer.
In the new show, our time-traveling hero meets and befriends a fearless worm from the future (with titanium-enforced abs), and together they form the perfect adventuring pair. The first season will premiere on August 1, 2016 at 11am on Disney XD.
Future Worm was created and executive-produced by Emmy Award-winning director Ryan Quincy (“South Park”), the comedy follows Danny and Future Worm as they embark on adventures through space, time and study hall. The characters were introduced last year in a popular “Future-Worm!” short-form series on Disney XD and Disney XD’s YouTube Channel.
Each episode delivers an 11-minute story, a 3-minute story and a 7-minute story to debut across all Disney XD platforms. Previews of the 3- and 7-minute story segments from the premiere episode will be available on the Disney XD app with the 3-minute also available on Disney XD’s YouTube Channel beginning MONDAY, JULY 11.
