New Episodes of ‘Kiya & the Kimoja Heroes’ Coming To Disney+ (US)

Disney has announced that 5 new episodes from Season 1 of  “Kiya & the Kimoja Heroes” will be coming to Disney+ in the United States on Wednesday, July 5, 2023.

This new preschool animated series is created by South African duo Kelly Dillon and Marc Dey and produced by eOne and Frog Box. It centers on a 7-year-old African girl who loves ballet and martial arts and when she and her two best friends put on their magical crystal headbands they become superheroes ready to defend their community. The series will incorporate the philosophy of Ubuntu, the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity.

When Kiya, also known by her superhero name “Dance Ninja”, and her two best friends, Jay, also known by his superhero name “Flying Rockstar,” and Motsie, also known by her superhero name “Tech Racer,” put on their headbands adorned with mystical Kimoja crystals, they transform into superheroes and can perform special moves inspired by their passions, like Kiya’s “pirouette POW”. Together they are the team of superheroes known as the Kimoja Heroes, ready to unite their community!

Kiya’s world features a diverse cast of characters inspired by the landscape, natural beauty and culture of Southern Africa, and focuses on themes of community, empathy and unity. As a mashup of action, dance and music, the show will be visually stunning, with African and Asian-lead characters, Southern African locations and a diverse creative team, including writers, designers and composers from across the globe.
