The PJ Masks are getting new friends, new powers, and a new headquarters in the new series PJ Masks Power Heroes from Hasbro‘s entertainment studio eOne.

The animated series continues off of the original PJ Masks show that captured the imagination of kids everywhere after its debut in 2015. The original was a huge success, now with more than 19.5 billion global lifetime views on YouTube.

PJ Masks Power Heroes features all the original favorite heroes, with Catboy, Owlette, and Gekko returning to fight villainy. The show is also getting six new diverse Power Heroes for more action and more super-powered day-saving. The trailer for the series dropped on Disney Junior’s YouTube channel last week — watch it below!

One new hero is Ice Cub, known as Ivan outside of his hero costume, who is the first PJ Masks character with a disability. Ice Cub is a wheelchair user who uses his powers to snowboard when in hero-mode. Ice Cub is voiced by Nylan Parthipan, who was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at the age of two. Nylan is eager to see the impact Ice Cub’s representation can have on kids with disabilities, hoping they’ll “think they can be anything they dream to be.”
