Disney Channel star Brenda Song is returning to the network to play the lead voice role in “Amphibia.” The new animated-comedy series will premiere on the Disney Channel and DisneyNOW service this summer. Disney didn’t set an exact premiere date for the show, but the network did reveal the first-look image above, and hopefully, we will get a trailer over the next few weeks.
In the new series, Song plays 13-year-old Anne Boonchuy, an independent and fearless teen who is magically transported to the fantastical world of Amphibia. The new location is a rural marshland full of frog-people, filled with colorful frogs and much adventure.
The announcement was made today as Song celebrated her birthday at Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California.
Fans of Song probably remember her best as London Tipton in Disney Channel’s long-running hit series “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody,” its spinoff “The Suite Life on Deck” and “The Suite Life Movie.” Song also starred in several other popular Disney Channel Original Movies, “Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior,” “Stuck in the Suburbs,” “Get A Clue” and “The Ultimate Christmas Present.”
“Amphibia” is created and executive produced by Annie Award-winning director Matt Braly (Disney’s “Gravity Falls”). The series will join Disney Channel’s other hit animated series like “DuckTales,” “Big Hero 6,” “Elena of Avalor,” “Milo Murphy’s Law,” “Rapunzel’s Tangled Adventures,” “The Owl House,” “Star vs. The Forces of Evil,” “Star Wars: Resistance,” and “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors.”
Brenda Song will also appear in the first season of “Dollface” on Hulu, which stars Lex Scott Davis, Kat Dennings, and Esther Povitsky. Song will be playing the role of Madison Maxwell in that series, which doesn’t have a release date at this time but should premiere in 2019.
