The Rocketeer will follow character Kit, a young girl who receives a surprise package on her birthday revealing that she’s next in line to become the Rocketeer, a legendary superhero who has the ability to fly with the help of a rocket-powered jet pack. Armed with her cool new gear and secret identity, Kit is ready to take flight and save the day with her gadget-minded best friend, Tesh, and airplane-mechanic uncle, Ambrose, who join her on epic adventures. There will also be an original song in each episode, which will contain a pair of 11-minute story segments.
So fans of the comic and original movie will be glad to see a new version of this story; sort of. Disney's version of The Rocketeer will premiere sometime in 2019.
