WATCH: Trailer drops for Disney Jr’s new The Rocketeer series

July 29th, 2019 by Marc Comments

So we have a trailer for the new Rocketeer series from Disney and it’s, well, it’s different…

The new series isn’t set during the war and doesn’t feature nazis with stolen tech who are trying to dominate the sky but rather focuses on Kit, a little girl who has inherited the Rocketeer jet pack.

Now, sure, I know this is a new kids’ show on Disney Junior but would it have killed them to stick a little closer to the source material?

The upcoming series will see Kit receive her exciting new gear on her birthday, when she discovers that she’s next in line to become the legendary superhero, the Rocketeer. Along with her gadget-minded friend, Tesh, and her Uncle, Ambrose, Kit will embark on a series of epic adventures and protect the citizens of Hughsville.

The Rocketeer will air on Disney Channel and Disney Junior this fall and stars Kitana Turnbull as Kit, Kathy Najimy as her mother, Sareena Secord; and Billy Campbell, who starred as Cliff Secord in The Rocketeer movie,  as Dave Secord, Kit’s father. The show will also be available on the DisneyNOW app.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
