The game’s afoot and, for the first time, we are holding a magnifying glass up to the characters of Mira, Royal Detective.

The new Disney Junior animated series is a mystery-adventure show inspired by the cultures and customs of India. Set in the fictional land of Jalpur, it follows Mira, a commoner who is appointed to the role of royal detective by the queen herself.

EW can exclusively give audiences their first look at Mira, who is voiced by 16-year-old newcomer Leela Ladnier. We’re also debuting photos of the series’ other characters, brought to life by an all-star cast of prominent South Asian actors.

Get your first look at these adorable animated characters alongside their real-life counterparts in the images below. Mira, Royal Detective premieres in March.
