We here at GeekDad are on record as being big fans of the Disney Junior show Miles From Tomorrowland. Not only is it smart and entertaining, but it has one of the most impressive supporting voice casts in animation today. Regular characters are provided by Mark Hamill, George Takei, Bill Nye, and Wil Wheaton!
This weekend, another icon joins the crew. LeVar Burton will premiere this Saturday, September 24 at 9:00 am on Disney Junior. He’ll play Miles’s teacher Dr. Consilium, and in the episode, Miles must help save his teacher on his very first day of galactic school.
LeVar Burton is a national treasure, and this is incredibly exciting news. (Check out our interview with LeVar here.)
We’re pleased to bring you the following exclusive peeks at LeVar’s character, along with a clip from the episode. (Fans of Transformers: Rescue Bots may hear shades of Doc Green in Dr. Consilium’s voice–for obvious reasons.)
