Marvel Entertainment has unveiled “Marvel Rising,” a new, multi-platform animation franchise starring the next generation of Marvel heroes which will launch in 2018.
The program will begin with six, four-minute digital shorts that spotlight Spider-Gwen with her new secret moniker, Ghost-Spider, and introduce audiences to the world of Marvel Rising with heroes like Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno. Following the shorts, a feature-length animated film, “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors,” will premiere later that year.
Distribution partners for the content will be announced at a later date. Voice talent includes Dove Cameron, 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 with Chloe Bennet reprising her role of Daisy Johnson from “Agents of SHIELD”.
Future stories and content are also being developed across Marvel’s digital and publishing platforms and will be announced at a later date.
