Primos is an upcoming Disney Channel animated series which will premiere on July 25, 2024.[3] It follows the life of Tater Ramirez Humphrey and her entire extended family.

Synopsis[]

From Emmy Award-nominated creator and executive producer Natasha Kline, Primos introduces Tater Ramirez Humphrey, an eccentric girl with big dreams, determined to find what makes her extraordinary. When her 12 chaotic cousins ("primos" in Spanish) move in for the summer, they help her discover her true self. The series is inspired by Kline's childhood experiences with her extended multicultural Mexican American family.[4]

Production[]

In 2017, the idea for Primos first emerged. The project was greenlit in 2020, and production officially begun in February 2021.[6]

Controversy[]

Upon the release of the intro, the series was met with incredibly divisive reactions, particularly from the Mexican and Hispanic communities, who felt that the show was playing into negative and repetitive stereotypes. Series creator Natasha Kline has defended the show's premise as they relate to being of mixed Mexican-American descent that she felt were true to her own personal experiences. The controversy resulted in the intro getting taken down from Facebook and X (then known as Twitter). It was still available to view on YouTube,[7] but was later privatized. It was further revealed that the character of Cookita, would get her name changed to Lucita, due to the original name sounding too crass for Spanish speakers, and that the main setting of the series was renamed from Terremoto Heights (meaning Earthquake Heights) to Hacienda Hills.

Despite this, the series garnered support from those within the animation community, such as Jorge R. Gutierrez, Phil Lord, Kiana Khansmith, Molly Knox Ostertag, Matt Braly, Jeff "Swampy" Marsh, and Bill Motz among others.[8]

Trivia[]

  • The series has a very similar premise to the Nickelodeon animated series The Loud House and its spinoff The Casagrandes. It is also similar to the Disney Channel live-action series Stuck in the Middle, which ran from 2016 to 2018.
  • The refrain of the theme song, "¡Oye primos!", is grammatically incorrect in most Spanish dialects, as "oye" is singular and "primos" is plural, therefore the correct grammar would be "¡Oigan primos!"
    • In Hispanic/Mexican-American dialect, "¡Oye Primos!" is often used as an informal (described pejoratively by non-Americans as a "Pocho") term. Creator Natasha Kline grew up as a mixed Southern/Mexican-American member of an LA Latinx (another uniquely Hispanic-American term) community, explaining why the term is used, despite grammatical inaccuracy in the rest of the Spanish-speaking world.
  • This is the first time Myrna Velasco voices the protagonist in an animated series; her previous roles have her voice a secondary character, anti-hero, or antagonist.
  • The series premiere would have succeeded the premiere of Big City Greens the Movie: Spacecation but was delayed for an unknown reason.
  • This is the fifth Disney series set primarily during summer vacation after Phineas and Ferb, Gravity Falls, Bunk'd, and Billy Dilley's Super-Duper Subterranean Summer.
