Armed with her cool new gear and secret identity, Kit is ready to take flight and save the day with her gadget-minded best friend, Tesh, and airplane mechanic uncle, Ambrose, who join her on her epic adventures.
The announcement was made by Joe D'Ambrosia, senior vice president, Original Programming, Disney Junior.
