Once again dipping into their deep archives, Disney is pulling out a rework of the life of the Seven Dwarfs for their new animated TV show The 7D. Rather than set the story in the world of Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, the show takes place in contemporary storybook world of Jollywood. The 7D follows brave little heroes Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Dopey, Grumpy and Doc as they work together to maintain order in the kingdom. Standing in their way are Grim and Hildy Gloom, a novice warlock and witch couple, who haplessly plot to dethrone the Queen and take over Jollywood.
Reworked and reimaginged, this new comedic take on the world of the Seven Dwarfs will premiere MONDAY, JULY 7 (10:00 a.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD and will debut on Disney Channel and Disney Junior later this year. Joining the voice cast are Jay Leno and Whoopi Goldberg in the recurring roles of Crystal Ball and Magic Mirror, respectively.
In the premiere episode, “Long, Long Winter/Itsy Bitsy Spider Fighters,” the 7D rescue the villagers of Jollywood from an eternal winter spell that the Glooms have cast on the kingdom and help Queen Delightful rid the castle of a pesky spider.
The series’ previously announced voice cast includes Kelly Osbourne as the comically evil villain Hildy Gloom. In addition to Osbourne, “The 7D” stars the voices of Jess Harnell (Disney Junior’s “Sofia The First” and “Doc McStuffins”) as Grim Gloom, Leigh-Allyn Baker (Disney Channel’s “Good Luck Charlie”) as Queen Delightful, Disney Legend Bill Farmer (the voice of Goofy) as Doc, Maurice LaMarche (“Pinky and the Brain”) as Grumpy, Kevin Michael Richardson (Disney XD’s “Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja”) as Happy, Dee Bradley Baker (“Phineas and Ferb”) as Dopey, Scott Menville (“Teen Titans”) as Sneezy, Stephen Stanton (Disney Junior’s “Doc McStuffins”) as Sleepy, Billy West (“The Ren & Stimpy Show”) as Bashful and Paul Rugg (“Animaniacs”) as Lord Starchbottom.
The series is executive produced by Emmy Award-winning Tom Ruegger (“Animaniacs”). Tom Warburton (“Codename: Kids Next Door”) serves as co-executive producer. Sherri Stoner (“Animaniacs”, “Pinky and the Brain”) is the story editor and Alfred Gimeno (“Tiny Toon Adventures”), Jeff Gordon (“Jakers!: The Adventures of Piggley Winks!”) and Charles Visser (“Animaniacs”) are the directors. Meme master Parry Gripp (“Do You Like Waffles?”) is the songwriter and composer for the series and also performs the theme song. The series is a production of Disney Television Animation.
