Get ready for a whole new season of adventures!
We are thrilled to announce that season two of our animated hit series Let's Go Luna! premieres today (Monday, May 10) on PBS KIDS. The new season follows our good friends Leo, Carmen, and Andy as they travel around the globe to 16 destinations with Luna the Moon, voiced by Judy Greer (Arrested Development, Ant-Man, Jurassic World).
Let’s Go Luna! is a visually rich series that encourages kids ages 4-7 to explore and appreciate world cultures while developing social skills. Each episode consists of two 11-minute animated stories based in one country in order to help kids better understand the traditions and local customs associated with each destination. Working alongside a group of cultural anthropologists and experts to ensure each region is authentically and respectfully portrayed, storyboard artists create visually-driven narratives to highlight each city’s distinctive features.
“This new season gave us the opportunity to return to some of our favorite countries, but also to explore new cultures and cities around the globe,” said Joe Murray, series creator. “Now more than ever, we need to teach children about cultural traditions outside of their own household while we continue to promote the acceptance of others.”
Let’s Go Luna! follows the adventures of three animal friends – Leo, a wombat from Australia; Carmen, a butterfly from Mexico; and Andy, a frog from the United States – as they travel the globe with their parents’ traveling performance troupe, “Circo Fabuloso”. At each stop, Luna the Moon guides the trio as they learn about the local region, its people and traditions that make each place unique. Along their travels, the characters learn of a traditional folktale associated with each new location. From language and music, to food and art – each episode ends with a reminder that there’s always more to see, learn and experience with each place you visit.
Let’s Go Luna! is executive produced by 9 Story’s Vince Commisso and by series creator and showrunner Joe Murray. Season two is directed by our very own Matt Mitchell, and produced by Charley Thomas, with Brown Bag Canada's VP of Production Nora Keely serving as supervising producer.
Tune in and watch the season two premiere today on PBS stations, the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel and PBS KIDS digital platforms. Join the trio as they set out on adventures to Reykjavik, Iceland; Delhi, India; and Kumasi, Ghana.
And to all our Canadian fans, mark your calendars, because Let’s Go Luna! season two will premiere in Canada on June 5, 2021, on TVOKids.
