Vellani said about the tone of the Marvel series:

“It is John Hughes-Esque mixed with Lady Bird and Scott Pilgrim.”

“It’s a lot more lighthearted than the other shows. We showcase that being a teenager is awkward, corny, and weird. We are self-aware of how cheesy the show gets sometimes, but when you are growing up, everything is so heightened your emotions, crushes, friendships, it all feels so new. Minor inconveniences also feel like the end of the world. We hold onto that feeling of when you are a kid just wanting to grow up.”

Ms. Marvel hits Disney Plus on June 8th, stay tuned for all the latest news.
