It’s been less than two years since Spider-Gwen first swung into action, but her popularity has propelled her from a one-off story to one of Marvel’s biggest superheroes, with her own comic, toys, and now, an appearance in a Marvel cartoon.
Disney XD has released the first image from its reboot of DuckTales, presenting one of the first cases of a single still getting a song stuck in my head with no prompting. “Life is like a hurricane, here in Duckburg!”
This is a great idea. It’s a better idea than a series of movies, honestly. Because what is more fitting to a superhero team than a bunch of weekly adventures?
Lego has announced a series of animated shorts set just before Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The first episode of Lego Star Wars: The Resistance Rises, focusing on Poe Dameron rescuing Admiral Ackbar from the clutches of Captain Phasma, airs next Monday on Disney XD after the conclusion of Gravity Falls. Here’s a clip!
A brand new Star Wars animated series is coming to TV. Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, a full-fledged show blending the humor of the Lego brand and, well, Star Wars, is set to premiere sometime this summer on Disney XD.
A young boy who can manipulate machines with his mind finds a massive robot that was built to defend the world from monsters. Together, he and his three friends must band together to pilot the robot—and help save the world!
Darkwing Duck, which aired its last new episode in 1992, will return to TV in 2018. Plenty of time to get dangerous.
The Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon took a brief hiatus before making it’s return this weekend, and I’m glad it did. It made me have at least an extra week of thinking this show had really turned a corner. Then “The Backstabbers” happened, and at least it had an appropriate title for how I felt?
Marvel Animation’s current output of shows leaves a little to be desired—too much of a focus on nodding to the movies, not enough doing their own thing. When Guardians of the Galaxy began, I thought much the same. But somehow, in a few short weeks, it’s gone from disappointing to delightful.
That headline might sound like it’s being awfully snarky—and it kind of is—but at the same time, this week Guardians of the Galaxy actually took the first baby steps from being a lukewarm repeat of a fantastic film to being a breezy, fun sci-fi cartoon. All it took was finding a little heart to do so!
In the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, James Gunn did a pretty spectacular job of fleshing out the five heroes of the team in relatively equal manner. But so far, the animated series is struggling a little more in this regard—when it gets it right, it’s every bit as fun as the movie. When it gets it wrong though, it…
The very first shot of Marvel’s new Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon is of Star-Lord’s cassette player. A hand reaches down onto it, the thumb presses play... and then Hooked on a Feeling blares out, as if a million executives simultaneously cried out “Oh god you loved that weird movie we made last year. What do we do…
Guardians of the Galaxy didn’t need to explain the backstory to its bizarre, single-sentence-speaking plant-man Groot. But the upcoming animated series wants to, just as it did with Star-Lord. So behold, the story of Groot... as well as the chance hear the phrase “I am Groot” an awful lot.
If you saw Guardians of the Galaxy and were wondering about what life was like for Peter Quill on Yondu’s ship — well, here’s your answer.
It's only taken 45 years or so, but Doraemon — the robot-cat from the future who is often called Japan's equivalent of Mickey Mouse for eternal popularity — is finally coming to America, when Disney XD premieres the anime this summer.
Here it is, folks – fresh from its WonderCon debut, our very first glimpse of actual footage from Star Wars: Rebels!
Two promos for Disney XD's new Star Wars cartoon Rebels have finally been released, giving up us our first look at the show in action! At a glance it looks like Clone Wars, except we don't recognize any of the characters. Also, the promos' narrator seems to be a bit of a pyromaniac.
The first clip from Avengers Assemble, the new Marvel cartoon debuting this Sunday on Disney XD, has arrived, and... well, it looks fine. As a lover of the needlessly cancelled Earth's Mightiest Heroes, this is difficult to say, but Assemble feels like EMH, just with the movie roster.
Disney has just released the first poster for Avengers Assemble. I hate to admit it, since I'm still insanely bitter it's replacing the magnificent Avengers: Earth Mightiest Heroes, but the character models do look pretty great. And the new official synopsis also sounds pretty awesome:
