For you Disney fans, there’s a new show coming out called “The 7D,” an animated series that delivers a comedic new take on the Seven Dwarfs. The zany and broadly appealing series will be presented on three Disney TV platforms: Disney XD, Disney Channel and Disney Junior, beginning this summer. The cast has now been joined by Kelly Osbourne.
Set in the contemporary and whimsical world of Jollywood, “The 7D” story finds the 7D – Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy and Doc – hard at work helping the quirky Queen Delightful (voiced by Leigh-Allyn Baker of Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie”) keep her kingdom in order. Osbourne will voice the role of Hildy Gloom, a novice witch who, together with her warlock husband Grim (voiced by Emmy-nominated Jess Harnell of Disney Junior’s “Sofia the First” and “Doc McStuffins”), haplessly plot to overthrow the kingdom.
Ms. Osbourne said, “It may surprise some to learn that I grew up watching Disney Channel, so playing a character in a Disney cartoon is beyond exciting for me.” She continued, “I’m having a blast voicing Hildy, who I’ve now come to think of as my alter ego – she is my Sasha Fierce. The role has taught me so much about acting – and Hildy’s a tough one to keep up with, so I wear workout clothes to recording sessions because I jump and move around to really bring her to life.”
My boys are getting older, but we still enjoy plenty of shows that Disney produces. We’ll be at least checking this on out.
