Disney has announced that Marvel Studios’ Ms Marvel will launch exclusively on Disney+ on June 8th.
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 invisible both at home and at school – that is, until she gets super powers like the heroes she’s always looked up to…
Iman Vellani stars as Kamala Khan / Ms Marvel. The cast also includes Aramis Knight, Saagar Shaikh, Rish Shah, Zenobia Shroff, Mohan Kapur, Matt Lintz, Yasmeen Fletcher, Laith Nakli, Azhar Usman, Travina Springer and Nimra Bucha.
Episodes are directed by Adil El Arbi & Bilall Fallah, Meera Menon and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. Kevin Feige, Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso and Bisha K. Ali are the executive producers. Co-executive producers for the series are Sana Amanat and Trevor Waterson, and Bisha K. Ali is the head writer.
Before Ms Marvel, the next new Marvel series to stream on Disney+ will be Moon Knight, starring Oscar Isaac, which debuts on March 30th. Both productions are part of Phase 4 of the MCU.
