Marvel Announces Marvel Rising Franchise
Marvel Entertainment has announced that they will be releasing "Marvel Rising," a brand-new, multi-platform animation franchise starring the next generation of Marvel heroes. It is set to launch in 2018.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors will be a feature-length film that will be released later in the year but before that, we will see six, four-minute digital shorts that spotlight Spider-Gwen with her new secret moniker, Ghost-Spider, and introduce audiences to the franchise. Voice Over stars will include 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.
Cort Lane, Marvel's Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment, said, "Marvel characters are so relatable because they live in our world and face the same challenges we do. So I'm very excited that our Marvel Rising team of heroes is so inclusive, reflecting characters with different backgrounds, particularly a set of strong female leads that our young audience can connect with."
"This project is unlike anything we've done before-from featuring the rising and fan-favorite stars of the Marvel Universe, to a visually distinct animation style, this is a groundbreaking animated event. It's an action-packed adventure, full of comedy, heart and powerful messages for every kind of Marvel fan", said Sana Amanat, Marvel's Director of Content & Character Development.
"Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors" brings 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.
