We have been following Vampirina which is coming to Disney Junior from the start and have a great interview with Vampirina Ballerina author Anne Marie Pace, where she gives us some insight on the show. Today we get some more information about the show and a nice picture of Vee and Wolfie to get us excited about the show which will air its first episodes as back-to-back shows simulcast on both Disney Channel and Disney Junior. This will allow them to capture a larger audience for a great new show, and we have seen Disney doing more and more of this simulcasting on multiple channels like they did with Descendants 2 this past summer.
VAMPIRINA – Disney Junior’s animated series “Vampirina” will premiere SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1 (11:00 a.m., ET/PT) with two back-to-back episodes simulcast on Disney Channel and Disney Junior. The episodes will also be available on Disney Junior VOD, Disney Junior YouTube and in the new DisneyNOW app, which will also debut two additional episodes same day. New episodes will be presented every Monday and Friday in October on Disney Channel and Disney Junior.
Our daughter is a huge fan of Vampirina Ballerina and the story that Anne Marie Pace has created is just perfect for its own cartoon. James Van Der Beek and Lauren Graham will be providing the voices of Vampirina’s parents Boris and Oxana with Isabella Crovetti as Vampirina. Chris Nee is heading this show up and it will be in great hands. The show will have the ability to create its own stories in the same universe as the books but expect some new and exciting things. You can catch the Vampirina theme song video below and it looks like this is going to be an amazing show that really brings to life characters that have been created in Vampirina Ballerina. The other great thing that we liked about the theme song video is that it looks like there are going to be a lot of other exciting characters like Wolfie, who seems to have two separate forms.
