Fans of action-packed superhero animation, rejoice! Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors has arrive on the Marvel HQ YouTube channel. The movie debuted Wednesday with a live-chat with the producers.
Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors follows powered-up teens Ms. Marvel (voiced by Kathreen Khavari), Squirrel Girl (Milana Vayntrub), Quake (Chloe Bennet), Patriot (Kamil McFadden), America Chavez (Cierra Ramirez) and Inferno (Tyler Posey) as they join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of up-and-coming heros have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name.
The voice cast also features BooBoo Stewart as Exile, Kim Raver as Captain Marvel, Ming-Na Wen as Hala, and Dee Bradley Baker as Tippy Toe & Lockjaw.
The Marvel Rising animated franchise will continue in 2019 with the previously announced 22-minute animated special Marvel Rising: Chasing Ghosts and 44-minute animated special Marvel Rising: Heart of Iron.
Executive producers were Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane and Eric Radomski; co-executive producers were Stan Lee, Sana Amanat and Marsha Griffin. The film was written by Mairghread Scott. Alfred Gimeno served as supervising director.
