Moonbug Entertainment, a subsidiary of Candle Media, has announced the launch of Nina’s Familia, the newest CoComelon spinoff series starring JJ’s lovable, sporty classmate and friend, Nina Reyes. First debuting on CoComelon in 2019, Nina is ready to take on the world with all new adventures full of excitement, fun, friends and of course, familia.
Nina’s Familia is an extension of the CoComelon universe, but now from the Reyes family perspective. Through the same style of three-minute songs and nursery rhymes that made CoComelon a worldwide phenomenon, children will now experience stories of family, social-emotional learning, positivity and healthy habits through the lens of a bilingual multigenerational Mexican-American family.
CoComelon gives important early life lessons a soundtrack with a song for every big-little moment and with Nina’s Familia they now have a Spanish twist. The series will include Spanish in many episodes, with some fully in Spanish, with songs including ¡Dale, Dale, Dale!, Pin Pon es un Muñeco and Estrellita Dónde Estás. In addition to language, the show will also include culturally significant storylines and songs that Mexican-American kids and their families are certain to recognize and enjoy like Día de los Muertos and Noche Buena Christmas.
“Nina’s Familia is the kind of series I’ve always wanted to be a part of but is so rarely seen. It’s one where an intelligent, caring, adventurous Mexican-American girl can do anything AND be anything all while being surrounded and supported by a strong Latine family. This show embodies everything so many of us at Moonbug wish we had growing up. The type of content we want to create for our daughters, nieces, nephews, etc. It’s an opportunity for every little Latine kid to see themselves and their family represented on screen in the way we’ve been waiting for. That’s what makes this series so important for Moonbug.” – Anthony Falcón, Creative Lead on Nina’s Familia.
New episodes of Nina’s Familia will launch on the Nina’s Familia YouTube channel each Friday starting September 29.
