Amphibia is a Disney Channel and Disney XD series, created by Matt Braly. The series premiered on June 17, 2019, although it received an early preview on June 14, 2019 on DisneyNOW and YouTube.

Summary

The show tells the heartfelt coming-of-age story of Anne Boonchuy, a self-centered 13-year-old, who is magically transported to the fictitious world of Amphibia, a rural marshland full of frog-people and dangerous creatures. With the help of an excitable young frog named Sprig Plantar, Anne will transform into a hero and discover the first true friendship of her life.

Season two finds Anne and the Plantars on a quest to unlock the mysteries of the music box as they leave the cozy confines of Wartwood for the distant city of Newtopia. On their journey, they will visit exotic new locations, uncover hidden secrets, and experience unexpected reunions as they continue to search for a way to get Anne home.

The third season will see Anne and the Plantars transported from Amphibia to her hometown of Los Angeles, where the frog family will have to learn about the modern world and try to find a way home - all while hiding their identities as talking frog people with Anne’s parents help.

Trivia

  • This is the first time Brenda Song has starred in a Disney Channel production since the ending of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody sequel, The Suite Life on Deck in 2011.
  • Amphibia is the first animated series in history to center on a Thai-American character.
  • The episode title cards depict a wood carving in darkness lit up with the title superimposed over it. This is an actual wood carving that is photographed and reused every episode.
  • The show was originally titled Amphibiland, but was changed due to sounding too similar to Amphibilands, the setting of the young adult novel series An Army of Frogs which was adapted into the animated series Kulipari, which was released on Netflix from 2016 to 2018. Both series also have Keith David voicing a main villain.
  • This is the second animated Disney production in which Anika Noni Rose, Keith David, and Jenifer Lewis appear, after The Princess and the Frog. Ironically, frogs were the main theme in that production, in which David also voiced the main villain.
  • Rebecca Sugar, of Steven Universe fame, will write a song for season three's Christmas special. This marks the first time Sugar, who had primarily worked over at Warner Bros., will be involved in a Disney production.[1] Braly previously worked on the Steven Universe episode "Lars and the Cool Kids".
