According to Broadway World, Disney XD is premiering Future-Worm!, an animated comedy adventure series. The show will follow a happy-go-lucky 12-year-old who invents a time machine lunch box, and then meets and befriends a brave worm with titanium-enforced abs.
The series was created and executive-produced by Emmy Award-winning director Ryan Quincy (South Park). The animated comedy follows Danny and Future Worm as they embark and multiple adventures throughout space, time and the study hall. The characters of the upcoming Disney XD show were introduced last year in a popular Future-Worm short-form series on the network’s channel in addition to Disney XD’s YouTube Channel.
Each episode of Future-Worm! will feature an 11-minute story, a 3-minute story and a 7-minute story which will debut across all Disney XD platforms. There will be previews available for the 3- and 7-minute segments from the first episode on the Disney XD app. Moreover, the 3-minute episode can be watched on Disney XD’s YouTube Channel now.
The cast of Future-Worm! Includes Andy Milonakis (Kroll Show) as Danny; James Adomian (Comedy Bang! Bang!) as Future Worm; Jessica DiCicco (Gravity Falls) as Bug; Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men) as Danny’s mom, Megan Douglas; Ryan Quincy as Danny’s dad, Doug Douglas; and Corey Burton (Jake and the Never Land Pirates) as the Narrator.
