A new show from Hasbro’s entertainment studio eOne is bringing dancing, martial arts, and friendship to Disney Junior and Disney+ this month.

Kiya & the Kimoja Heroes stars the young Kiya, a 7-year-old African girl with a love for dancing and martial arts who’s ready to save the day with her newfound superpowers. When she and her friends Jay and Motsie put on their mystical Kimoja crystal headbands, they transform into superheroes! Kiya becomes Dance Ninja, Jay becomes Flying Rockstar, and Motsie becomes Tech Racer. Together, the Kimoja Heroes will have to save the day from any trouble the three Flawed Friends try to stir up.

The new show features a cast of characters and landscapes inspired by Southern Africa. The characters featured in Kiya & the Kimoja Heroes were originally adapted from characters created by South Africans Marc Dey and Kelly Dillon. With dancing, music, and plenty of excitement, kids can learn to deal with issues like jealousy, envy, and competitiveness in a fun and open way.
