Magic is brewing in Malaysia as Disney Channel Southeast Asia presents its first ever locally scripted series “Wizards of Warna Walk”, a fantasy sitcom that follows the adventures of a unique Malaysian family living in busy Kuala Lumpur.

The series is centred around the D’Cruz family- three wizard siblings with magical abilities:Amelia and her older siblings Alissa and Aiden; father and former wizard Norman, and mother Jasmin. The family runs a Peranakan “kopitiam” called Little Nyonyum, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. As the siblings balance their lives as regular kids in school and trainee wizards at home, the D’Cruz family inevitably find themselves in a variety of hilarious, fun, and heart-warming situations that are sure to entertain kids and families.

  • 19-year old Mia Sara who plays Alissa D’Cruz
  • 15-year old Idan Aeden who plays Aiden D’Cruz
  • Comedian, producer and actor Afdlin Shauki who plays Norman D’Cruz

    “As Disney Channel Southeast Asia’s first every locally scripted show, I am proud that Malaysia is the first country to be picked to produce this and very proud to have the opportunity to be a part of this project,” said Carmen Soo.
    “Since I was a kid, I’ve always wanted to be a part of the Disney family. Now as an adult, my dream has come true!” said Afdlin Shauki.
    The series features locally composed music, including theme song “There’s Magic Here”, performed by popular Malaysian singer Daiyan Trisha. The music video will premiere on Disney Channel on 16 August 2019, and can also be viewed across the channel’s social media platforms. 

Kids and families can also look out for celebrity cameo appearances throughout the season. These include popular local personalities like actors Zalif Sadek and Fikhree Bakar, actressVicha Barbie, and singer Zain Hamid.
