Disney has set a release for the upcoming Ms. Marvel series on Disney+
According to Disney:
Marvel Studios’ Ms. Marvel is a new, original series that introduces Kamala Khan, a Muslim American teenager growing up in Jersey City. An avid gamer and a voracious fan-fiction scribe, Kamala is a Super Hero mega fan with an oversized imagination—particularly when it comes to Captain Marvel. Yet Kamala feels like she doesn’t fit in at school and sometimes even at home—that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to. Life gets better with super powers, right?
The series stars fellow Canadian Iman Vellani as Kamala Khan aka Ms. Marvel. The rest of the cast includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.
Following the Ms. Marvel series, Vellani will be reprising her role in the upcoming Captain Marvel sequel, The Marvels, along side Brie Larson and WandaVision‘s Teyonah Parris.
The series was created by Bisha K. Ali (Loki, Hulu’s Four Wedding and a Funeral) and serving as the show’s head writer.
The Disney+ series was directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah (Bad Boys for Life, HBO Max’s Batgirl), Meera Menon (For All Mankind) and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.
Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Sana Amanat, Trevor Waterson and Bisha K. Ali serving executive producers for the series.
