Disney has announced a new epic adventure animated series titled “Dragon Striker” which will premiere on Disney Channel and Disney+ in 2024.
In this action-packed adventure full of comedy and high-stakes sports drama, elite players have a magical signature move they can use on the pitch. Twelve-year-old Key can only dream of entering the famous school where the greatest players train before joining the big leagues – until he discovers he has his own ultra-powerful spell.
