Ultra Violet & Blue Demon is coming to The Disney Channel

The Disney Channel announced today that Ultra Violet & Blue Demon has gotten a full series order. The series will be absed around a magical luchador mask that selects 13-year-old Violet (Scarlett Estevez) to become Ultra, the superhero successor to her uncle, who is the famous Mexican wrestler and former NWA World Champion Blue Demon Jr., who is also a superhero-in-disguise.

As the series progresses Ultra begins her own secret superhero training with her uncle, all while having to navigate the ups and downs of middle school. As they start to work together, “Uncle Blue” realizes he can learn a few things from Ultra’s modern Gen-Z take on crime-fighting.

Rafael Garcia, vice president, Development, Disney Branded Television commented “Blue Demon Jr. is a Mexican cultural icon (as was his adoptive father Blue Demon) and we are looking forward to introducing him—and the luchador mythology—to our viewers, with Violet and her family, we also have the opportunity to present an authentic Mexican American family in a series that combines humor and adventure in a unique Latinx shake-up of the superhero genre.”

Also starring are Marianna Burelli as Violet’s mother, Nina; Juan Alfonso as Violet’s father, Sebastian; Brandon Rossel as Violet’s brother, Miguelito; Zelia Ankrum as Violet’s best friend, Trudy; and Bryan Blanco as Violet’s goody-two-shoes classmate Enrique Diaz-Diaz.
