Filipina author Tori Tadiar excitedly announced on social media that one of her graphic novels, Highsummer, will be released by Disney Hyperion in 2024.

Highsummer follows the tale of a 12-year-old girl named Mika, a student from  Ilustra Junior High School, who accidentally casts a spell on two of her classmates. As she tries to undo the curse, she awakens ancient gods and a sun-devouring beast. With the mythical beings set loose, Mika must team up with former bullies to save the world.
