The Rocketeer 03 - ‘The Rocketeer’ Set to Return ... As an Animated Disney Junior Series?


I’m a huge fan of Joe Johnston‘s 1991 ’30 s age experience film The Rocketeer And as constantly, I’m a huge fan of efforts to reimagine timeless residential or commercial properties in unique methods. While I might see a reboot of The Rocketeer occurring, either on the huge screen or the little one, I never ever anticipated it to show up in rather this method.

Disney Junior revealed that they have actually started production on The Rocketeer, a brand-new animated experience series for young kids and their households that will makes its launching in2019 That’s all well and good, however here’s where things get fascinating: “Inspired by Dave Stevens‘ popular comics series, The Rocketeer follows Kit, a girl who gets a surprise bundle on her birthday exposing she’s next in line to end up being the Rocketeer, a famous superhero who has the capability to fly with the aid of a rocket-powered jet pack. Equipped with her cool brand-new equipment and secret identity, Kit is all set to fly and conserve the day with her gadget-minded friend, Tesh, and plane mechanic uncle, Ambrose, who join her on her impressive experiences.” Certainly not exactly what I, nor anybody else, was anticipating, however if this develops into a pro-S.T.E.A.M. series that motivates young audiences to obtain into science-based fields, all the much better!


The statement was made today by Joe D’Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming, Disney Junior. He had this to state:
