The Disney-Kugali collaboration was first announced in 2020. At the time, Disney said it was the first time that it would work with African storytellers to create an animated series set on the continent.

“The heartbeat of my hometown resonates through every scene, and I am thrilled for the world to experience this unique fusion of tradition and futurism,” says one of the show’s writers, Olufikayo Ziki Adeola.

Among the stars voicing these characters are Simisola Gbadamosi, Dayo Okeniyi, Femi Branch, Siji Soetan and Weruche Opia.

Kugali was created to tell “stories inspired by African culture using comic books, art and augmented reality”, according to their website.

“This show will combine Disney’s magic and animation expertise with Kugali’s fire and storytelling authenticity,” Kugali co-founder Ziki said in 2020.
