Phineas and Ferb Meets Star Wars In Special 2014 Episode

680x478

The adventuring stars of Disney’s hit animated series Phineas and Ferb are heading to a galaxy far, far away: A special Star Wars-themed episode of the musical-comedy series is currently in production, announced at by show creators and executive producers Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh at Comic-Con International in San Diego. The one hour event episode will premiere next year on Disney Channel and Disney XD, placing the characters of Phineas and Ferb in the same space and time as the world of Star Wars.

Povenmire said, “May the ‘Ferb’ be with you and with all of us who for decades have dreamt of a chance to work with the great characters and stories of Star Wars.”

The episode’s story begins a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away — in summer. Phineas and Ferb are living happily on Tatooine, just one moisture farm over from Luke Skywalker. They love simply hanging out and creating new adventures under the twin suns, however, they find themselves thrust into a global rebellion when the plans for blowing up the Death Star accidentally fall into their hands.

Now that fate has suddenly pulled them into the fight for freedom, they must go in search of a pilot who can take them to the Rebels so they can hand over the plans. Complicating matters, Candace — the boys’ sister — has a Stormtrooper-like intent on “busting rebels” who chase Phineas and Ferb across the galaxy in hopes of retrieving the Death Star plans.

Meanwhile, back on the Death Star, Dr. Darth Enshmirtz, a low level Darth, has created a Force-powered “Sith-inator” that he plans to use against the Rebel Alliance. Agent P, working undercover for the Rebellion, is dispatched to stop him, but quickly gets trapped in carbonite. Then, things take a startling turn when Ferb is accidentally hit by the full blast of Dr. Darth Enschmirtz’s “inator” and becomes…an evil Sith.

Beware The Batman To Premiere On Cartoon Network Saturday, July 13, 2013

bm

The Caped Crusader will return to television screens this summer when Beware the Batman premieres on Cartoon Network Saturday, July 13 at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) as part of DC Nation. Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.

A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordswoman Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. Animation (WBA), this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.”

Starring Anthony Ruivivar (Banshee) as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Beware The Batman boasts a stellar voice cast with JB Blanc (The Count of Monte Cristo) as Alfred and Sumalee Montano (ER) as Katana. Lending voices to the villains are Wallace Langham (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as Anarky, Grey DeLisle (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Magpie, Udo Kier (Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc.) as Mr. Toad, Lance Reddick (Fringe) as Ra’s al Ghul and Brian George (The Big Bang Theory) as Professor Pyg.

680x478

Disney is going back to basics for its latest Disney Channel series, titled simply, “Mickey Mouse.” The shorts began airing on Friday, June 28, on the Disney Channel, Disney.com and other Disney-branded platforms.

The new series will feature short adventures starring the company’s mascot getting involved in slapstick hijinks. In a deliberate attempt to get away from the modern look of computer animation, the new Mickey Mouse shorts will be done in traditional 2-D animation and feature a Mickey Mouse styled as he was in the 1930s.

MICKEY MOUSE, DONALD DUCK

Adding to the retro style, the background designs are inspired by the look of Disney cartoons in the 1950s and ’60s, and it’s said that the production team is paying homage to other Disney icons along the way.

You can watch 4 of the most recent shorts below: Croissant de Triomphe, Yodelberg, No Service and New York Weenie.

Adventure Time #17 MONDO Variant Comic Cover To Go On Sale Wednesday, June 26, 2013

MONDO worked with BOOM! on a variant cover for Adventure Time #17 to celebrate their Adventure Time/Regular Show Gallery opening last Friday. MONDO decided to use a design from JJ Harrison and below, he talks about his influences and why he did what he did:

“I designed the “Adventure Time” cover to honor the single most important thing in my son’s life–Adventure TIme–and one of the movies that had a tremendous impact on my childhood–E.T.  Both center around a boy and his magical companion and the adventures they share together. It was a nice fit. For me, the original E.T. poster evokes a feeling of soaring adventure coupled with a sense of growing up and loss, and I wanted some of that in this piece, as well. I found a subtle way to include a very melancholy Ice King in the image. I feel like no other character from Adventure Time embodies those emotions more than he does.”

You can see photos of the comic HERE.

Please follow MONDO on Twitter for the on sale announcement. This exclusive comic book will be available online at a random time on Wednesday, June 26th and it will not be available at comic shops.
