Set in a Pennsylvania neighborhood, the series stars Lauren Graham, James Van Der Beek and Isabella Crovetti as the Hauntley family, friendly vampires who have recently moved from their home in Transylvania. The stories follow Vampirina (aka “Vee”) as she faces the joys and trials of being the new kid in town including making friends and attending a new school in the human world. Along the way, Vee learns that it may be easier to blend in with her peers, but it’s more valuable to celebrate the qualities that make each individual unique.
Inspired by Disney Publishing’s popular children’s book series “Vampirina Ballerina,” written by Anne Marie Pace and illustrated by LeUyen Pham, the series includes leaders from the creative team on Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning animated series “Doc McStuffins” including creator/executive producer Chris Nee and co-executive producer Norton Virgien. Nicky Phelan (“Octonauts”) serves as director. Broadway composers Michael Kooman and Christopher Dimond (“The Noteworthy Life of Howard Barnes”) are the series’ songwriters, and Layla Minoui (“Castle”) is the composer. Each episode of “Vampirina” features two 11-minute stories and one original song. The series is produced by Academy Award®-nominated animation studio Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Junior.
