Marvel To Launch Series Of Animated Shorts & Film In 2018

Marvel Entertainment has announced Marvel Rising, a new project set to launch in 2018.

Marvel Rising is an animation franchise highlighting some key characters in 2018. It will begin with a series of six, four minute shorts. Following that, an animated feature film will debut, titled, Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors. The characters featured in Marvel Rising include Gwen Stacy (Ghost-Spider), Daisy Johnson (Quake), Dante Pertuz (Inferno), Victor Kohl (Exile), Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel), Doreen Green (Squirrel Girl), America Chavez, Rayshaun Lucas (Patriot), Gloria ‘Glory’ Grant, Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel), Hala, Captain George Stacy, Lockjaw, and Tippy Toe.

The content features an all-star line-up of voice talent including Dove Cameron, Chloe Bennet, Tyler Posey, BooBoo Stewart, Kathreen Khavari, Milana Vayntrub, Cierra Ramirez, Kamil McFadden, Skai Jackson, Kim Raver, Ming-Na Wen, Steven Weber, and Dee Bradley Baker among others. Future stories and content are also being developed across Marvel’s digital and publishing platforms and will be announced at a later date.

‘Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors’ is a long-anticipated event, bringing together Marvel’s newest and beloved characters that have garnered major fan excitement over the last few years. Powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a ‘hero’ and ‘misfit’ is just in the name.”
