Since it’s debut on Cartoon Network in 2010 (or as a six minute pilot on the Nicktoons network in 2007, if you want to get really “um, actually” about it), Adventure Time with Finn and Jake has shown us just how much fun a human boy and his talking, shapeshifting dog can have.
The show's mix of Dungeons & Dragons style fantasy escapades, bizarre surrealism, and low-key, dialogue-driven comedy made it an immediate hit with viewers of all ages. It goes without saying that the show's inseparable best friends go on adventures (at a specific time that has been set aside for it, if the title is to be believed), but the show has proven to be about so much more than just adventure.
Comic-Con 2015 taught us that we needn’t say goodbye to The Legend of Korra (or the Avatar-verse) forever, following announcements of a sequel graphic novel, but fans of Bryan Konietzko and Mike DiMartino’s animated epic have even more reason to celebrate. Not only will Korra get a full Blu-ray and DVD release, but so too have we the first key art.
We don’t yet know how deeply the next Guardians of the Galaxy will delve into the history of its core five (save for Star-Lord’s pappy), while Disney XD’s upcoming animated series has taken care to introduce detailed origins glossed over by the films. Next up is Drax the Destroyer, whose history with Ronan the Accuser may have been more complicated than we realize.
In addition to all the Arrow Season 4 and Flash Season 2 teases of late, not to mention Legends of Tomorrow, The CW will spawn a fourth series of sorts in CW Seed’s animated Vixen series, premiering this Tuesday. We’ve seen a few tidbits of the new animated DC drama to star the likes of Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin and more, and now a hearty new featurette offers up a closer look.
It’s been a while since we had an update on Sony’s Masters of the Universe reboot/revival/whatever. Last we heard, Kick-Ass 2 writer/director Jeff Wadlow had completed a script, while G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu departed the project. While the film is still in development without a director, Sony has brought on Thor: Ragnarok scribe and recent New Warriors writer Christopher Yost to rewrite the screenplay.
Amid the reign of selective sequels in recent years, few could have expected Jurassic World to revitalize interest in the Jurassic Park franchise so heartily. Certainly, the original incarnation permeated its share of culture with endless merchandising tie-in, but did you know we almost got a “mature” Jurassic Park animated series, before Spielberg permanently caged the project? We even have the concept art to prove it.
One of the more interesting elements of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy animated series has afforded movie-influenced backstories to each character, that while not necessarily canon, offer insightful looks into the character history James Gunn could only exposit in the film. Next up comes Rocket Raccoon, whose gruesome origins are a tough one to tackle for Disney XD.
Anyone initially skeptical of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy quickly changed their tune at the prospect of talking raccoons and trees, something Disney XD’s upcoming animated rendition knows full-well. Our latest look at Guardians of the Galaxy writes a love letter to all raccoons, talking or otherwise.
If you’re not particularly a fan of Jared Leto’s Joker aesthetic in Suicide Squad, then the latest Joker-centric news may put a smile on that face (sorry): Zach Galifianakis is in talks to join Will Arnett’s Batman and Michael Cera’s Robin in the LEGO Batman movie as the voice of the iconic clown prince. Cue laughter.
I’m not ashamed to say it; I watched Jem as a I kid. I liked it! It wasn’t so much the glamour and glitter that appealed to me (ditto the fashion and fame). But the idea of this rock star with a superhero-style secret identity seemed really cool, as did some of the details of the rock-and-roll lifestyle, which I assumed (at the age of like five years old) was basically like a documentary.
