The show follows the space missions of young adventurer Miles Callisto and his family as they work together to help secure the galaxy. Space exploration and science facts play a key role in each episode’s story.
“We work with many experts in the space, science and technology fields — Nasa astronauts, space architects and futurists, Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Jpl) scientists and Google engineers — and all of them have talked with us about their own early experiences as children that sparked their curiosity about space and the possibilities for the future,” said Nancy Kanter, exec VP of original programming and general manager at Disney Junior.

Disney Junior is blasting off with a new science-based adventure cartoon series.
“Miles From Tomorrowland” is set to premiere Feb. 6 with four back-to-back episodes, the cabler said Monday.
The half-hour toon incorporates science facts, with the help of consultants from Nasa and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, among other experts, into the journey of young adventurer Miles Callisto and his family as they travel the galaxy via the Tomorrowland Transit Authority, an obvious nod to Disneyland.
The series reflects the emphasis in academic circles on the need to pique the interest of more youth in careers centering on science, technology, engineering and math.
