The game’s afoot and, for the first time, we are holding a magnifying glass up to the characters of Mira, Royal Detective.
The new Disney Junior animated series is a mystery-adventure show inspired by the cultures and customs of India. Set in the fictional land of Jalpur, it follows Mira, a commoner who is appointed to the role of royal detective by the queen herself.
EW can exclusively give audiences their first look at Mira, who is voiced by 16-year-old newcomer Leela Ladnier. We’re also debuting photos of the series’ other characters, brought to life by an all-star cast of prominent South Asian actors.
