Leading multicultural toy manufacturer World of EPI (Entertainment, Publishing and Inspiration) has announced a  collaboration with Disney Consumer Products, Games and Publishing to create fashion dolls, collectible figurines and accessories for the new Disney+ series The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder and the upcoming Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur series on Disney Channel.

World of EPI will create a series of 10-inch fashion dolls with rooted hair, collectible figurines, poseable plush, role play accessories and more based on the ethnically diverse characters. Each doll and figurine will exemplify the distinct characteristics of each character, and will be designed to “celebrate diversity, self-love and empowerment”.

The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder is the highly anticipated revival of the groundbreaking Disney Channel series, The Proud Family. The series is set to debut on February 23 on Disney+.

Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, based on Marvel’s hit comic books,  follows the adventures of 13-year-old super-genius Lunella Lafayette (voiced by Diamond White) and her 10-ton T-Rex, Devil Dinosaur. It premieres in summer 2022 on Disney Channel.
