Deadline posted an exclusive earlier about an upcoming Disney pilot featuring lucha libre legend Blue Demon Jr.

Disney Channel has given a cast-contingent pilot order to Ultra Violet & Blue Demon, a superhero coming-of-age luchador action-comedy from a girl’s point of view, starring and executive produced by Mexican luchador and professional wrestler Blue Demon Jr.

Written/executive produced by Pokémon Detective Pikachu writers Dan Hernandez and Benji SamitUltra Violet & Blue Demoncenters on 13-year-old Violet, who is stunned when a magical luchador mask “chooses” her to be the successor to her uncle, the famed luchador Blue Demon Jr. (Demon Jr., playing a version of himself) who is actually a secret superhero. Violet will now begin her own secret superhero training, all while having to navigate the universal ups and downs of coming-of-age while keeping her new alter-ego a secret.


This follows in the footsteps of Blue Demon and El Santo among other luchadores who have been featured in film and television for a half century in Mexico.
