“Marvel’s Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest” premieres Sunday, September 23 at 9:00pm ET/PT on Disney XD!
After setting the biggest domestic and global debut in history, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War has become not only the biggest Marvel Cinematic Universe film of all time but the fourth biggest release in history with more than $2.04 billion worldwide. It became Disney’s fastest-selling digital release in its in-home debut and recently rocketed to the top of the sales charts in its Blu-ray and DVD release. Here’s a look at the film’s accomplishments around the world.
Walt Disney Records and Marvel Music has released “Born Ready,” an exclusive new single performed by Descendants’ star Dove Cameron. “Born Ready” is also the theme song to the upcoming animated film “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors.” The digital single is currently available for download and at streaming services and the companion featurette is now available on DisneyMusicVEVO. You can watch the video below.
“Marvel Rising” is the next generation of Marvel heroes for the next generation of Marvel fans. In the animated film, “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors,” powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno 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 teens 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. “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” will premiere simultaneously on Disney Channel and Disney XD on Sunday, September 30.
Dove Cameron is the voice of Ghost-Spider, a free-spirited teen who finds her calling to be a Super Hero after being bitten by a radioactive spider and gaining spider-like powers. Her character appears in “Marvel Rising: Initiation,” a series of 6 animated shorts that premiered on Disney XD earlier this month and are available to watch on Marvel HQ now (click here to watch).
“When we heard ‘Born Ready’ for the first time, it gave our animation team chills,” said Cort Lane, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Animation & Family Entertainment. “It had all the swagger, friendship and heroic aspirations of the Marvel Rising characters. Dove’s fierceness and talent embodies everything the song is about, and her amazing performance made ‘Born Ready’ something very special.”
“Born Ready” was performed by Dove Cameron, written by Doug Rockwell and Tova Litvin, produced by Doug Rockwell, and published by Touchstone Pictures Music & Songs, Inc. (ASCAP) and Marvel Comics Music, Inc. (ASCAP) / Buena Vista Music Company (BMI) and Marvel Superheroes Music (BMI).
“Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” stars Chloe Bennet as Quake, Milana Vayntrub as Squirrel Girl, Kathreen Khavari as Ms. Marvel, Kamil McFadden as Patriot, Tyler Posey as Inferno, BooBoo Stewart as Exile, Cierra Ramirez as America Chavez, Kim Raver as Captain Marvel, Ming-Na Wen as Hala, and Dee Bradley Baker as Tippy Toe & Lockjaw.
“Marvel Rising: Initiation” and “Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors” are executive produced by Joe Quesada, Dan Buckley, Cort Lane, and Eric Radomski; co-executive produced by Stan Lee, Sana Amanat, and Marsha Griffin. The shorts and special were written by Mairghread Scott. Alfred Gimeno served as supervising director.
