Marvel Entertainment has announced that they will be launching a new animation franchise titled "Marvel Rising" in the year 2018. This franchise will follow next generation Marvel heroes and will consist of six, four-minute digital shorts that will feature Spider-Gwen and her new moniker, Ghost Spider. After these shorts are released, fans can expect a follow up feature-length animated film entitled, "Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors."
Marvel has gone all out to provide amazing talent to bring this Marvel Universe to life. Some of this talent includes, Dove Cameron ("Descendants"), Tyler Posey ("Teen Wolf"), Chlow Bennet ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D"), and BooBoo Stewart ("Descendants").
Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment stated that, “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.”
