Here's the first look at the opening titles for Craig McCracken's long awaited new series for Disney Channel, Wander Over Yonder. The main title theme song is written and performed by contemporary folk duo, Two Man Gentlemen Band; band member Andy Bean is the composer for the series. Another cool fact - there's 62 backgrounds in the 41 seconds it runs.
The series' voice cast stars Jack McBrayer ("30 Rock," "Wreck-It Ralph," "Phineas and Ferb") as free-spirited Wander, April Winchell ("Mickey Mouse Clubhouse") as Wander's true-blue stallion and best friend Sylvia, Tom Kenny ("SpongeBob SquarePants") as Commander Peepers, the leader of the Watchdog Army, and Keith Ferguson ("Gravity Falls," "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends") as evil villain Lord Hater. Series guest stars include James Marsden ("X-Men"), Aziz Ansari ("Parks and Recreation") and Edie McClurg ("Wreck-It Ralph").
"Wander Over Yonder" is executive produced by series creator Craig McCracken ("Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends," "The Powerpuff Girls"). Lauren Faust ("Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends," "My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic") is co-producer and story editor. The series is produced by Disney Television Animation.
