Disney’s Future-Worm! is certainly one of the most original concepts the House of Mouse has put out in recent years: a 12-year-old makes a time machine lunchbox and meets a fearless worm from the future with titanium-enforced abs. Yep.
A few months back, we chatted with creator Ryan Quincy about the show and how fatherhood seeps into his creative process. You can check that out here.
On tonight’s episode, the show enters a new dimension: the third dimension. Bwa-ha-ha! Premiering at 8:30 pm Eastern on Disney XD is “Steak Starmom.” For this episode, the artists created a new 3D look to portray Danny and Future Worm accidentally stumbling into the Steak Starbolt virtual reality game. Danny’s mom (voiced by Melanie Lynskey) joins them in the game in order to spend her day off with Danny.
The one and only Jonathan Frakes recurs as Steak Starbolt, Danny’s favorite TV character from Steak Starbolt: The Best Generation. (Clever, eh?)
Check out an exclusive clip from the new episode below, and definitely tune in and check out the show if you haven’t already…
