Disney Channel today announced that it has renewed Amphibia, the popular animated series, for a third season. The series, which returns for Season 2 on July 11th, stars Brenda Song as the voice of Anne Boonchuy, a human girl that is transported to the world of Amphibia -- which is full of frog-people -- after opening a magical box. Amphibia also features Justin Felbinger as the voice of Sprig Plantar, Amanda Leighton as the voice of Polly Plantar, and Bill Farmer as the voice of Hop Pop.
The show was created by Matt Braly and, according to Disney, was inspired by his heritage and trips to Bangkok, Thailand. The first season premiered last year around this time. In addition to the above, Disney Channel has released the episode titles for the show up through the beginning of August and revealed that Season 2 guest stars include the likes of Kermit the Frog, George Takei, and more.
