It was announced at the 2019 D23 Expo that Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur is the latest Marvel Animated Television show — and I am here for it! Honestly, I did not know much about these comics until my interview with comic book writer Ann Nocenti a couple years ago. When asked which comic book characters she would like to see made in to a show or movie, her choice was Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
It was at that moment that I started buying up these comics and reading them. I ended up loving them so much that I passed them on to my daughters, who grew to love them as well. This odd pair even joined up with the Fantastic Four kids recently, and it is amazing.
Lunella Lafayette is Moon Girl
Moon Girl’s real name is Lunella Lafayette, and she is a super genius. And I mean genius. The girl is SMART — she would give Tony Stark a run for his money if you ask me. Lunella is pretty young, a preteen, but she doesn’t let that stop her.
However, she is well aware that she has the inhuman gene, and she is a bit terrified of it. After all, you never know what is going to happen once that gene is activated. She works hard to find a solution, and in doing so, finds her best friend. A giant red T-Rex is accidentally transported from the past and they become fast friends.

Trust me when I say, you are about to fall in love with Moon Girl (and Devil Dinosaur!).
