Star Wars Rebels has become a fan favorite show among the legion of Star Wars fans. The show largely filled the gap that was left after the cancellation of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (which was rushed off air so quickly the final season became a Netflix exclusive). The show is comprised of largely the same team, following the same art style who have actually managed to close a few plot threads from the other show—however, while Clone Wars followed young Jedi padawan Ahsoka Tano and her master Anakin Skywalker between the Episode II and III films, the new series is set years later, showing the formation of the early Rebel alliance pre-Episode IV. The show has been successful enough that it is already gearing up for the third season. (more…)
Life is like a hurricane in Duckberg, and nobody knows it better than Scrooge McDuck; the millionaire codger was a character children fell in love with while watching Disney’s Saturday morning classic, DuckTales. The show premiered in 1987, and was so successful that it led to a feature film, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, and two highly successful video games (one of which was remastered not too long ago). DuckTales (and spin-offs DarkWing Duck and Quack Pack) has since remained a nerdy fan favorite (even resulting in some disturbing deconstructions). Last year, Disney realized how sorely the franchise was missed, and moved ahead to revive the show with a reboot on Disney XD. Now, we’re getting our first glimpse in poster form. (more…)
Big Hero 6 did quite well at the Box Office, more than enough to guarantee a sequel, but in a surprise move, Disney is taking the Marvel animated series to the small screen. Big Hero 6 will become an animated series on Disney XD in 2017, picking up right after the events of the movie in which Hiro and company save the city. (more…)
Disney XD has been making our wait for the Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series a little more bearable by releasing the origin stories of the main characters. This past month we have been able to dive deeper into the lives of Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, and Drax the Destroyer; and now last but never least: Gamora.
Marvel has released the short origin story prequels of Groot, Star-Lord, and Rocket Raccoon already in preparation of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series, and now the time has come for us to take a closer look at the story of Drax the Destroyer. You’ll remember him as the very literal, revenge-bent force to be reckoned with, albeit with a lesser seen caring and loyal side. Although the videos don’t follow the same timeline as the film, Drax still proves to be very much the same.
“The rocket is both a means of propulsion and a weapon!” We’ve seen how Groot and Star-Lord came to be who they are, and now in Marvel’s latest Guardians of the Galaxy 2-part short, we’re shown how Rocket Raccoon became the scamp we all know and love. Although, as you’ll see after watching the videos, a lot of what makes Rocket who he is was already part of his feisty, snarky personality!
Groot makes it very clear that he is Groot- but what does it mean to be Groot? Marvel Entertainment takes us a step closer to understanding with the new two-part origins clip they released from Disney XD’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series. (more…)
The upcoming Guardians of The Galaxy animated series has nothing to do, story wise, with the movie-verse. Still its the same rag tag crew of space bound misfits teaming up to save the universe from itself. If the following clip is any indication, this series will reveal more backstory about our characters than the feature film did.
The clip in questions sees Peter Quill (Will Friedle) meeting the Ravager, Yondu for the first time! (more…)
While it won’t be connected to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the forthcoming Guardians of the Galaxy cartoon series shows plenty of promise. Being shown on Disney XD, the “official” premiere date is Saturday, September 26, with back-to-back episodes, but the swell folks at Disney have chosen to give viewers a sneak peek by showing the first episode on Saturday, September 5. The show should serve well to hold fans over until the next big-screen iteration of the team graces our presence in 2017. Check out the teaser video here, with the plot synopsis for the first two episodes included below!
