Disney Junior has greenlit a new season of its pre-school targeted series Miles From Tomorrowland, the network said Tuesday.
The series, which charts the outer space missions of young adventurer Miles Callisto and his family as they work together to help connect the galaxy on behalf of the Tomorrowland Transit Authority, is the network's top series across preschool networks in total viewers, kids 2-5 and boys 2-5 to date, according to the network.
Recurring guest stars include Adrian Grenier (Entourage), Mark Hamill (Star Wars), George Takei (Star Trek), Bill Nye (Bill Nye the Science Guy), Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Alton Brown (Good Eats) and Brenda Song (Dads).
Miles from Tomorrowland is produced by Wild Canary Films in association with Disney Junior.
"We work with many experts in the space, science and technology fields –NASA astronauts, space architects and futurists, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) scientists and Google engineers – and all of them have talked with us about their own early experiences as children that sparked their curiosity about space and the possibilities for the future," said Nancy Kanter, executive vice president, original programming, and general manager, Disney Junior Worldwide, in a statement. "We hope that Miles From Tomorrowland will continue to provide that inspiration for today’s generation of young children."
