New Disney Channel Series, Amphibia, inspired by Matt Braly’s “Hoppy” Memories

Disney Channel’s order for the second season of animated comedy series Amphibia came ahead of its June 17 season 1 debut. So it is not a surprise that we will see more of the frog-centric cartoon on the channel. Because it looks like the House of Mouse is confident with the quality of the show.

But one interesting thing about Amphibia is the origin of the concept, which focuses on the adventures of fearless teen Anne Boonchuy and her experiences with an odd family of frogs. According to creator and executive producer Matt Braly (Gravity Falls,) the series takes its cue from all of the childhood trips he took to connect with his family in Bangkok, Thailand.

 According to Braly, “Amphibia was inspired by my memories as a child of traveling to Bangkok every summer to visit my mother’s side of the family.  At the beginning of each visit, I would be immediately overwhelmed by how different Thailand was compared to California. But, by the end of the trip, I never wanted to leave.  In creating Amphibia, I wanted to bottle up that magical feeling.  Anne will arrive feeling one way, but the world begins to grow on her over the course of the series.”
