We’ve been following along with the Disney Channel’s new animated comedy series Amphibia for a little over a year now, and today we got our first really good look at it. As a bonus, the network has gone ahead and greenlit a second season before the first episode has even premiered, suggesting that something magical is in the making here. Amphibia, the brainchild of Annie Award-winner Matt Braly, who has worked on hit series like Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, and Big City Greens, will debut at 10 am on June 17th on Disney Channel and DisneyNow. The series invites viewers to join in on the adventures of independent and fearless teen Anne Boonchuy (Brenda Song) after she is magically transported to a rural marshland full of frog people and meets the excitable young frog Sprig Plantar and his family.
Amphibia will get to enjoy a second season at the very least as Disney Channel has renewed it ahead of its premiere this June. The first-look trailer also reveals the new series’ characters, tone, and super-fun visuals. Following Amphibia‘s debut on Monday, June 17th, new episodes will air daily through Thursday, June 20th and the series will air daily throughout the summer.

Here’s the official synopsis for Amphibia:
After stealing a mysterious music box, 13-year-old, Anne Boonchuy (Brenda Song) is magically transported to the world of Amphibia, a wild marshland full of talking frog-people. With the help of an excitable young frog named Sprig, Anne will transform from monster to hero and discover the first true friendship of her life!
As the press release announced, the voice cast features Justin Felbinger (Miles From Tomorrowland) as Sprig Plantar, who forges a once-in-a-lifetime friendship with Anne; Amanda Leighton (This Is Us) as unpredictable pollywog Polly Plantar, the youngest member of the Plantar family; and the legendary Bill Farmer (the voice of Goofy) as overprotective and traditional grandfather Hop Pop.
The guest voice cast includes Tony Hale (Veep) as mysterious salesman Apothecary Gary; Chris Sullivan (This Is Us) as southern tusked frog Gunther, who lives on the outskirts of Wartwood, and bed-and-breakfast owner Teddy; Stephen Root (Barry) as Wartwood’s Mayor Toadstool; Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) as Mayor Toadstool’s assistant, Toadie; Kristen Johnston and Matt Jones (Mom) as prison guards Braddock and Percy; Olympic figure skaters Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir as celebrity talent show judges; Diedrich Bader (American Housewife) as famous bugball player, Frog Jordan; Kevin McDonald (Lilo & Stitch) as restaurant critic Mr. Duckweed; James Patrick Stuart (General Hospital) as local town vagrant One-Eyed Wally; and YouTuber Anna Akana as Anne’s best friend from back home, Sasha.
In addition to the main series, a collection of shorts, “Teen Girl in a Frog World”, will arrove in August on Disney Channel YouTube, while the DisneyNOW app will feature an immersive role-playing game Amphibia: Locust Pocus, where players get to go on quests and help Anne and Sprig fix the damage in Wartwood caused by the locusts. Lots to do for fans of Amphibia!
