We usually have to wait until the newest Pixar film hits theaters to enjoy the latest Pixar short, but fans of the beloved animated studio won’t have to wait until this fall to see Dante’s Lunch… A Short Tail. Pixar has released their new short online a full eight months ahead of its theatrical debut, giving fans another sneak peek at the colorful world of Coco via the life of his endearing dog, Dante.
Steven Universe is one of the most exciting animated shows of the last many years, but I probably don't need to tell you that, because you almost certainly watch it. It's great for kids, it has an extremely diverse cast, there's queer representation, and it consistently delivers messages about the importance of compassion and positivity in the face of conflict and despair. It may be exactly the show the world needs right now, so thank the cartoon gods that we have it. In order to celebrate the show, we've picked out the ten very best episodes from the more-than 120 episodes that have aired so far!
Batman: The Animated Series is one of the most celebrated shows ever made. It had a huge impact on all of the DC Universe, and all the animated series that would follow. After a few seasons, the show was rebooted with a new look and a new dynamic as The New Batman Adventures, where it continued to be just as amazing as ever (although featuring a slightly less cool looking Joker). With a better budget and more experience, the team behind Batman: The Animated Series was ready to create some of the best episodes of --- not just the DCAU's Batman, but for the DCAU entirely.
Star Wars Rebels has come to yet another temporary close with Season 3 finale “Zero Hour,” dealing the title heroes a harsh blow, and moving us one step closer to the Star Wars films. To wit, producers promise both Rogue One’s Saw Gerrera and Mon Mothma will return in Season 4, which already has its first concept art.
While the CW’s live action shows are forming a huge DC Universe on TV, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe is ever-expanding, years before either there was an entire multi-layered, character-filled superhero universe in the form of the DC Animated Universe.
The DCAU started with Batman: The Animated Series, and from there it grew until we finally got to Justice League Unlimited, which featured almost every DC hero teaming up to protect the Earth against every threat imaginable. The show ran for 39 episodes between 2004 and 2006, and we've picked the ten best episodes from that run.
As you may have already heard, DC's greatest heroes (and Aquaman) are set to hit the big screen later this year in a live-action, big-budget Justice League movie. It turns out, however, that this won't be their only trip to movie theaters this year.
This fall, the Justice League is heading to Japan to take on the evil forces of Eagle Talon in the appropriately titled DC Super Heroes vs. Eagle Talon, in which the would-be conquerors have to face their most staggering threat of all: An animation budget that gets completely drained by the arrival of some licensed superheroes. Check out the preview!
There’s no arguing that superheroes currently own the cineplex, but in a slight change of pace, one of this upcoming summer’s cape-clad defenders won’t hail from the pages of Marvel or DC. Kids (and nostalgia fetishists in their mid-to-late twenties) will get a colorful crimefighter of a different stripe with Captain Underpants, the computer-animated adaptation of Dav Pilkey’s long-running line of sophomoric chapter books about a delusional elementary school principal’s adventures in doo-doo derring-do. The first trailer hit the internet today, and if you were wondering if it contains the same Steve Aoki club banger as the War Dogs trailer, then have I got some good news for you!
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Aquaman and Aqualad, Moana, Howl's Moving Castle, Yuri Katsuke, and more.
Star Wars Rebels finally circled back to give Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi one last showdown, and … well, if you’ve seen Star Wars, you could probably guess its outcome. Still, Rebels boss Dave Filoni now explains why the rematch went as it did, and how it simultaneously pays tribute to both Seven Samurai and The Phantom Menace.
