If you grew up in the late 80s/early 90s, then chances are that DuckTales was a pretty big part of your life. The series launched in the fall of 1987 and was part of the Disney Afternoon line-up for years culminating in 100 episodes and a big screen adventure called DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp. If you miss those golden days, or wish you could share them with the child in your life, there’s good news because Disney is bringing DuckTales back next summer in an all-new series on Disney XD, and below you can watch the very teasing teaser.

It was much to the disappointment of the small but dedicated band of Agent Carter fans that the series was cancelled by ABC earlier this year. For two seasons, the 1940s-set adventures of SSR Agent Peggy Carter as she saved the world despite the chauvinistic attitudes of her superiors and co-workers gave many Marvel fans the female hero they wanted and needed, and for a time, it was good, but not good enough it seems. Well, for all those missing Agent Carter it will do your heart good to know that Agent Carter herself will be back in the very near future, and while you won’t be able to see Hayley Atwell in the role, you’ll at least be able to hear her.

After making a few new friends, reuniting with old ones, and taking down a handful of evil-doers along with way, Spider-Man & Kid Arachnid are finally making their way back to Miles’ home universe as a part of Marvel & Disney XD’s four-part Ultimate Spider-Man Season 4 event. Today we have a first look at the finale which has our superheros meeting New York City’s – Spider-Gwen! Check it out below:
Star Wars fans lost their collective minds when it was announced at San Diego Comic Con earlier this year that non-canonical, fan favorite villain, Grand Admiral Thrawn, would be appearing in the 3rd season of Star Wars: Rebels. Back when Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise, it was announced that everything outside of the 6 films, The Clone Wars TV show, and Star Wars: Rebels would not be considered canon. This effectively cast aside the countless books, comics, and video games that contributed to the Star Wars lore in the years between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. Among those elements that didn’t survive Disney’s version of Order 66 was Thrawn, who first appeared in Heir to the Empire written by Timothy Zahn. (more…)
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!
