One of your favorite Disney XD shows, Kirby Buckets, is getting a whole new makeover for its Season 3. Starting on Monday, January 16 at 7:00 ET/PT, the network will be airing the series' new concept, Kirby Buckets: Warped. This version of the show will follow Kirby and the gang as they travel through different universes using Principal Mitchell's mystical orb.
In the first episode, titled "Yes, This Happening," airing tomorrow, "Kirby accidentally opens a portal that leads to an alternate-universe Forest Hills, causing his parents to disappear through to the other side," according to a show description. "Vowing to find them, Kirby enlists the help of his sister, his friends and Principal Mitchell as they travel through alternate realities. But all this inter-dimensional travel has big consequences that threaten life in Forest Hills as they know it."
Over the course of the season, the crew will visit 10 alternate dimensions – and we just had to find out about them. TWIST caught up with the main cast of the show to get them to spill about the new episodes, which are set to air daily on weekday mornings all this week. Check out our exclusive Q & A below.
TWIST: Which was your favorite alternative dimension to visit on this season?
Jacob Bertrand ("Kirby"): My favorite alternate dimension was the Intergalactic dimension where Kirby was a spaceship commander.
Tiffany Espensen ("Belinda"): The Desert Wasteland was my favorite. We filmed on location and we were covered in dirt all day. I remember we had so much fun eating popsicles and just laughing the whole time.
Cade Sutton ("Eli"): The space dimension.
Olivia Stuck ("Dawn"): My favorite was the medieval dimension for sure. Queen Dawn!
MeKai Curtis ("Fish"): My favorite alternate dimension was the one where I got to be Police Chief Fisher. It was by far my favorite episode to shoot in season 3!
TWIST: Which alternate reality would you love to visit in real life if you could, and what would you do when you got there?
TE: The Desert Wasteland! Belinda gets to wear a really funny outfit for that dimension. I would probably find the alternate dimension characters and hang out! Each dimension is so unique and amazing. All I can say is it's the best show ever with the best dimensions ever. You will love it, I promise!
CS: The mountain/desert. I would probably rock climb, hike and explore.
OS: I would love to travel to a place where there is only peace. I think the world would agree with me. I'd like to see more love and acceptance. That just got deep?
MC: That's kind of a tough one to answer, they were all SO much fun. I never really put much thought into going to an alternate dimension! But whatever dimension I visit, I think the first thing I would do is see if a Wawa (my favorite convenience store back in Jersey) is there. I reallllllllly miss Wawa living in California.
JB: The alternate dimension I would like to go to is the Wasteland dimension - there were some super cool rocks that I'd like to climb! Hahaha!
TWIST: What are you most excited for fans to see happen in Warped?
TE: How creative and brand new the show's concept is. Fans get to see alternate versions of our characters in every episode. The costumes are gorgeous, every episode is visually pleasing, and the alternate dimensions are mind blowing. There's a lot at stake for the characters and each episode leads into the next, making it like a giant movie! It's original, wacky, and highly entertaining. Our whole cast worked so hard making this season something spectacular.
CS: All the outrageous characters that we played throughout the season.
JB: I am most excited for fans to see the creative characters and the amazing places the cast goes to.
OS: I'm excited for their reactions mostly. It's completely different from what we've done in past season. Absolutely different. I'm also excited for people to see the character growth in everyone. We've all grown up and matured so much, and I think everyone did a great job with transitioning their character. We started off as freshman and now we're seniors!
MC: I'm excited for fans to see all of these unique worlds the characters wind up in and how different things are in those dimensions... Sometimes everything everyone knows of the Kirby crew changes! 😉I think they'll enjoy the crazy "warping" that goes on.
