Thank you to Disney for sponsoring my attendance at the #TheBFGEvent, which included #FutureWormEvent!
I’m so excited that you guys can finally watch the premiere episode of Future-Worm! in just a few more days! (On August 1 at 11am on Disney XD, to be precise.) I had a blast at the #FutureWormEvent last month. Watching the first episode and interviewing Ryan Quincy was so much fun. Take a look at our interview for a peek behind the scenes.
My inner nerd is particularly excited about appearances in the show from Neil deGrasse Tyson. Yep. THE Neil deGrasse Tyson, in cartoon form.
As the story goes, only child Danny Douglas hoped to find a worldly, thrill-seeking friend with whom he could venture out and see what the world has to offer. Future Worm, who amassed a wealth of experience during his travel through time, longed for a home and family. When Danny’s lunch box invention brings them together, the kindred spirits dive head first into their adventures, both at home and through time, usually unaware of the consequences. The Douglas family takes Future Worm into their home, providing him the family he’s always wanted. Mom Megan Douglas is a loving and scatterbrained toy inventor who inspires and encourages her son’s creativity, and dad Doug Douglas is an overly cautious stay-at-home dad who while not mechanically inclined, is supportive of his son’s inventions. Danny’s close friend, Bug, a smart and scrappy 8-year-old girl with a high mechanical aptitude and confident spirit, lives in the junkyard across the alley from him and occasionally joins their adventures.
Future-Worm! is a production of Disney Television Animation and carries a TV-Y7 parental guideline. Catch the premiere episode on Monday, August 1 at 11am EDT on Disney XD.
