Back in February, we learned that Planes would be the first spin-off from the popular Cars series. Today, Disney and Pixar announced the release date for the direct to Blu-Ray and DVD movie at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, and sent along a trailer as well as casting announcements.
Take a gander at this sneak peek of the Green Lantern: The Animated Series.
Those attending Comic Con will no doubt get to see a bit more than that on Friday.
Marvel sent over screen shots from this weekend’s Super Hero Squad show that features your beloved heroes in some very interesting costumes…
Marvel sent over some screen captures of this week’s The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. I just had a chance to watch the latest episode, and it’s a good one.
This weekend on The Super Hero Squad, don’t be surprised if your ears perk up a bit. Adam West will provide the voice for Nighthawk, the leader of a team of the Squadron Supreme.
While many are excited about TRON: Legacy hitting the movie screen next month, Disney is banking that the film and franchise will be successful enough that little tykes will want in on the action, too. Disney has given the thumbs up for an animated series called TRON: Uprising, which has been set to hit the Disney XD cable channel in the summer of 2012.
“Tron: Uprising’s” voice cast includes Elijah Wood, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Mandy Moore, Paul Reubens, Nate Corddry and Lance Henriksen. Bruce Boxleitner will reprise his role as Tron. “Tron: Uprising” will focus on Beck (voiced by Wood), who leads a revolution inside the Grid’s computer world.
Disney XD is targeted more toward male viewers, and with a Marvel TRON comic in stores now, it looks like TRON won’t be going away anytime soon.
This issue: The show starts off with a discussion of Sym-Bionic Titan, and then the crew talks about the next Superman movie, with Stephen going off the deep in claiming he would rather see Superman leap tall buildings rather than float in mid-air.

The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!,” an all-new animated series featuring the best of the best in the Marvel Universe, premieres WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD. Produced by Marvel Animation, the series stars the world’s greatest heroes — Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Ant-Man/Giant Man and Wasp — who form the Avengers, a team assembled when the powers of a single hero are not enough to save the world.
Beginning WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, Disney XD, DisneyXD.com/Avengers, Marvel.com, MarvelKids.com and Disney XD Mobile will roll out 20 micro-episodes introducing the team’s core members. Each five-and-half-minute episode focuses on the back story, allies and nemeses of the heroes before the Avengers were formed.
Over the years, we’ve seen some mighty cool trailers for video games, but I think this one for the upcoming Batman: The Brave and The Bold takes the cake.
The year was 1994, The nation struggled to make up its mind about NAFTA, Rock & Roll lost an icon in Kurt Cobain and Nelson Mandela became South Africa’s first black president. And do I remember any of this happening?
But I remember the Iron Man animated series.
One of the main reasons Disney bought Marvel was to try and develop content that would appeal to the young male crowd.Â Disney had mentioned it wanted more Marvel content on its DisneyXD channel, and now it looks like we are seeing that part of the plan play out with the announcement of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
“The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” — Further aligning the strength of Marvel’s hugely popular characters and stories with the burgeoning Disney XD brand and global reach, an all-new animated series, “The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes,” will debut in fall 2010 on Disney XD and DisneyXD.com. Beginning with the “Iron Man” and “Incredible Hulk” movies in 2008, the release of “Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” follows Marvel’s overall “Avengers Assemble” strategy introducing the greatest heroes in the Marvel Universe through various content platforms, including the upcoming feature films “Iron Man 2″ in May of 2010, “Thor” in May of 2011 and “Captain America” in July of 2011, all building up to the Avengers theatrical film in 2012. Produced by Marvel Animation, the animated series features 52 episodes targeted at kids 9-14, starring Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Incredible Hulk, Giant Man and Wasp — who form the Avengers, a team assembled when no single hero’s powers can save the world. A 20-part “micro-series” that focuses on each hero’s backstory will roll out in fall 2010 on Disney XD, immediately followed by the series premiere on Disney XD in the U.S. and, shortly thereafter, around the world. Disney XD, the single largest distributor of Marvel content around the world, currently showcases approximately 20 hours of Marvel series (including “The Spectacular Spider-Man,” “Fantastic Four” and “Iron Man”) each week.
What does everyone think of this latest Avengers cartoon series?Â Are you going to find yourself watching more or less DisneyXD now?
