Larissa Dias is heading to the academy…
Peacock has ordered Supernatural Academy, a YA animated fantasy series adaptation of Jaymin Eve’s The Supernatural Academy books, with the Brazilian actress named to the voice cast.
Supernatural Academy chronicles an otherworldly adventure of sisters marked at birth. One twin sister was raised in the Supernatural world, confident and popular. The other was raised in the human world, an offbeat outsider. Now they’re about to be reunited at the Supernatural Academy, and neither one of them is thrilled about it. These adversarial twins will have to learn to get over their differences and trust each other in order to save themselves – and save the world.
Set to premiere on Thursday, January 20, 2022, Supernatural Academy features Dias, Gigi Saul Guerrero, Vincent Tong, Cardi Wong and Shannon Chan-Kent.
Bethany Brown, Brian Drummond, Barbara Kottmeier, Alessandro Juliani, Ali J. Eisner, Diana Kaarina and Kathleen Barr.
Dias will play as Jessa Lebron. Jessa is a popular Wolf Shifter in her junior year at the Supernatural Academy. She has everything a girl could ever ask for including a supportive father and four best friends with their own unique supernatural skills.
Guerrero will voice Mischa Jackson/Lebron. Raised by a single mom with a tendency to move from place to place, Mischa has never fit in anywhere. The timid, creative and sweet natured girl transforms after realizing her mother has hidden who she truly is for sixteen years.
“It is so incredible to see my original story come to life in this high-quality animation project,” said Eve.’ “I am so grateful to both Peacock and 41 Entertainment for believing in me and I am sure that all of the fans of the books are anxiously marking January 20th on their diaries.”
The series is produced by 41 Entertainment. Steve Ball serves as series director, Jody Prouse as animation director. Animation services are provided by ICON Creative Studio.
