Get ready to witness the power of a young girl, and her hamster! The new Disney Channel superhero series, Hamster & Gretel will premiere on August 12th. Before that, fans attending Comic-Con this year will get a first look at the show.
Hamster & Gretel lands a prime Saturday spot for their panel, which will be from 6:45-7:45pm in Room 6A. Members of the cast are scheduled to appear, as well as the creative team. So we’ll likely see series Creator/Executive Producer Dan Povenmire and Producer Brandi Young. Again, we don’t know which cast members will attend, but they include Meli Povenmire as Gretel; Michael Cimino (“Love, Victor”) as Gretel’s older brother, Kevin; Beck Bennett (“SNL”) as Gretel’s pet hamster, Hamster; Joey King (“Kissing Booth”) as her tech-savvy cousin, Fred; Matt Jones (“Bob Hearts Abishola”) as the siblings’ easygoing father, Dave; and Carolina Ravassa (“Maya and the Three”) as their charismatic mother, Carolina.
Today IGN also released a new trailer for the series:
In case you need to know more, here is the official synopsis: “Hamster & Gretel introduces Kevin and his younger sister, Gretel, who are about to be bestowed superpowers by space aliens. But something goes awry, and it’s Gretel and her pet hamster (named Hamster) who suddenly have new abilities. Now, protective older brother Kevin must figure out how to work with both Gretel and her pet, Hamster, to protect their city from mysterious dangers.”
The series is produced by Disney Television Animation. Keep checking back for our continued coverage.
